Fortruss Pile

FORTRUSS is an EPS concrete forming system that provides unique opportunities to create beautiful and durable coloured or stamped concrete finishes, maximizes efficiency for heated floors, is fire safe, quiet and can provide R values exceeding R40.

The FORTRUSS light weight EPS deck panels are supported by metal clad truss forms and provide structural form work for insulated suspended slabs. Applications include floors, decks and roof structures with clear spans of up to 40 feet.

FORTRUSS complements green building designs through energy efficient, durable structures that promote healthy indoor air quality.

*No CFCs or HFCs.

The Fortruss System

The FORTRUSS system provides superior strength, quality, safety and value when compared to conventional floor and roof truss systems. Ideal for use in both residential and commercial construction, FORTRUSS incorporates the strength and durability of concrete, the high performance insulating value of EPS rigid insulation and the added structure and flexibility of metal cladding. FORTRUSS perfectly compliments your Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) structure and together they provide a complete structural and thermal “building envelope”.
