“Well, a truss can be designed to span as long as a project requires. Just take a look at the Four Winds Arena, a 20,000 sq. ft. practice riding arena with 90 ft. span trusses designed by A-1 Roof Trusses of Fort Pierce, FL.
While the sheer size of a 20,000 sq. ft. agricultural facility may conjure images of a large box, don’t be fooled. The plans incorporated a number of design elements to give the arena a distinctive look. The structure included hand-framed exterior bearing timber beams, box beam trusses with a full bottom chord to give the appearance of timber, and a second tier of the roof designed with fixed glass windows.
“It’s a design comparable to an old train depot, except this is 40 times the size,” explained Tony Conant, Sales Representative at A-1 Roof Trusses.”
