Commercial application of Larsen Truss system?
Has anyone seen an application of the Larsen Truss system in a large scale commercial setting? Is it called something else?
I’ve had great success using the system in smallish multi-family settings but I’m not sure how well it scales up.
Ive been asked to informally consult on a proposed high efficiency hog barn build.
High moisture and high air turnover.
Proposed wall system is 2X6 structure with plywood sheathing on the interior with a thick coating of spray-on air sealer. Larsen trusses applied to the exterior with dense pack cellulose, horizontal strapping, house wrap, 3/4” vertical strapping and the steel siding.
The competing conventional system is a 2X6 structure with spray foam in the cavities and poly panels on the interior.
VERY short structural life with LOTS of moisture problems.
