A truss is a structure that takes advantage of the inherent geometric stability of the triangle to evenly distribute weight and to handle changing tension and compression. The truss uses a web of triangles that are joined so that pressure and tension are applied to the points of the corners of each triangle to take advantage of their stability to support a structure. Truss signs are specialized signs that identify buildings that use a truss type construction. Most states that require the posting of truss signs do so for commercial and industrial buildings. A truss sign is an essential tool to firefighters in alerting them to the often unseen construction. We at hpd-signs carry all types of truss signage.
