CST’s truss systems create structures that are elegant and structurally sound using state-of-the-art design and manufacturing tools.
CST all-aluminum truss systems are a very efficient and cost effective approach to covering space. Certain projects require reinforcement of the single layer lattice work. CST utilizes discreet trussing to reinforce framing and minimizes the visual impact of having structure in the three dimensional space allowing for pure light transmission and minimal framing.
Open or Enclosed Lattice
Trusses can be manufactured using a variety of extrusions, paint options and attachment methodologies to individualize the aesthetics and lend diversity to the final design. Alternatively, the trusses can be enclosed with distinctive cladding for acoustic or other design requirements. As with all of CST’s aluminum structural components, the non corrosive framing ensures that there is no visual or hidden issues with rust or corrosion as may occur with painted steel members.
CST’s truss systems are custom designed to the customer’s exact specifications and the project’s structural requirements.

Styles come and go, and sometimes reappear. Take hats, for example. What’s fashionable in the 60s went out in the 70s but may come back a few decades later. However, when it comes to municipal water facilities, yesterday’s model is gone for good, replaced by a more contemporary, sustainable design.
