KeyTruss - Steel Truss Design

Keymark Enterprises is pleased to announce the commercial availability of its proprietary steel truss solution called KeyTruss; the latest innovation in steel framing. KeyTruss is a new and unique steel-truss system that combines the benefits of standard C-shaped steel trusses with a series of new capabilities that greatly improve performance in truss manufacturing, assembly, logistics, and installation.

The KeyTruss system leverages Keymark’s end-to-end solutions for steel framing. Keymark’s truss design software, GS Truss, automatically engineers trusses and optimizes the outputs for manufacturing. The output files are then loaded into Keymark’s GSS-2 roll former, the most advanced of our roll former product line. The webs and chords are punched, marked, rolled, and sheared exactly to design specifications.

KeyTruss saves money on truss assembly, shipping, and installation:

  • The labeling on roll-formed pieces includes all required information, along with a unique identifier system that greatly reduces the need for shop drawings. (If you can line up “web joint A” with “chord joint A”, you can assemble these trusses!)
  • Pilot holes at each joint ensure proper placement and virtually eliminate the need for alignment jigs. (Watch this video to see how easily KeyTruss pieces are joined together.)
  • KeyTruss’s in-plane construction reduces shipping volumes and costs, since each truss is a single layer that lines up nicely.
  • KeyTruss’s robust design reduces the need for web bracing, making installation faster, easier, and cheaper.

KeyTruss is available to be shipped directly from our factory in DFW area, or we can ship product neatly bundled so the assembly can be completed at or near the job site. Either way, the KeyTruss system is the steel-frame-truss solution for you!
