Truss Design: Hayward’s expert truss designers work closely with builders and homeowners to convert ideas and drawings into precision-engineered roof trusses. They consider the size of the building, the number of occupants, the shape and span of the truss, how the truss will be supported, the type of roof construction and ceiling type, and the loads on the truss as part of the process. Hayward’s truss designers also consider the placement geometry and defining parameters, including pitches, heel heights, overhang and cantilever details. They ask the necessary questions to identify any special requirements as well, to ensure that the final product will meet the needs of all of the people involved and withstand the test of time.

NextPhase™ Site Solutions: Using proprietary Javelin software Hayward can quickly create detailed framing layouts that can produce precision end cuts (including angles and bevel cuts), pre-drilled holes for mechanical runs and individually mark each piece for blocking, connectors placement, and intersecting members. Using this system, builders can increase installation speed while reducing waste and delays on the jobsite.
