TGI Beams used as Roof Trusses

     

Monday, September 26, 2011 This is a church under construction.

In the photos you can see the use of TGI Beams used as trusses. It is the first time that I have seen them used in this application. We have become accustomed to seeing them used as floor joists, but I have not seen them used as unprotected roof trusses.

Is it any wonder why Church fires kill firefighters? Remember: The Occupancy Type coupled with the Time of Day make up the Life Hazard. WHEN it falls, don’t be under it.
