Scissor Truss Dimensions

    scissor truss
  • Roof truss designed with a bottom chord sloping upwards to an interior peak at the center of the building. Allows for increased interior clearance as the center of the building is approached. May require a steeper than standard exterior roof slope.
  • A roof truss with an angled ceiling already built-in, used for rooms with a cathedral or vaulted ceiling, the pitch of the ceiling is normally half that of the roof.
  • A roof truss framed at the bottom by crossed intersecting beams like open scissors.
  • A mode of linear extension of which there are three in space and two on a flat surface, which corresponds to one of a set of coordinates specifying the position of a point
  • (dimension) the magnitude of something in a particular direction (especially length or width or height)
  • A measurable extent of some kind, such as length, breadth, depth, or height
  • (dimension) property: a construct whereby objects or individuals can be distinguished; "self-confidence is not an endearing property"
  • An aspect or feature of a situation, problem, or thing
  • (dimension) one of three Cartesian coordinates that determine a position in space

American DJ Mega GO Flood Par HO RGB Battery LED - New
The ADJ Mega GO Flood Par HO is a "high output" rechargeable lithium battery powered low profile LED Par fixture featuring TRI LED (3-IN-1) Surface Mount Diodes (SMD).

This Par fixture offers the creativity of RGB color mixing for stage or wall washing, has a 120-degree beam angle, plus the freedom to set up your fixture where ever you wish without the restrictions of power. With a wide beam angle and short throw from it's SMD (Surface Mount Diode) LEDs, the Mega Go Flood Par HO is designed for short, wide wall washing and backlighting of Scrim.

This fixture uses LEDs rated at approximately 50,000 hours with a maximum power draw of 22W. DMX addressing may also be changed by the unit's 4-button LED display, or controlled by a DMX Controller or the ADJ RFC RF remote control (sold separately). There is no duty cycle, plus users can "daisy-chain" the power from one unit to the next with the built-in IEC power Ins/Outs, up to 25 Mega Go Flood Par HOs. The built-in battery will keep a charge for up to 4.5 hours (full on) from a full, single for up to 4.5 hours (full on) from a full, single charge.

Flared cedar posts support this covered entrance way. The scissor log truss is mimicked with larger log trusses running the length of the great room and out to the back of this hybrid log house. Log siding is used on the outside with chinking. Log work by Sitka Log Homes.

Pitsco Balsa Truss Tester
The Pitsco 37764 Balsa Truss Tester applies pressure to 1/8-inch balsa wood model trusses to test the structure's load capacity and is for use by students in grades 6-12 studying the scientific concepts of engineering, structural forces, and geometry. The truss tester is made of lightweight acrylic that is impact resistant. It adjusts to hold triangular- or flat-topped trusses up to 4 inches tall and 12 inches wide for testing a variety of truss sizes. It comes with two different load blocks: one adjusts to four different angles (15°, 20°, 25°, and 30°) for testing triangular trusses and the other is square for testing flat-topped trusses. Its clear acrylic shield keeps trusses securely in place for testing while offering students protection from splintering wood. The tester can be used as a standalone tester with a hanging weight or as an attachment to the Pitsco 36730 Structure Testing Instrument with the 37775 Balsa Truss Tester Adapter (both sold separately). It measures 9 x 14 x 2-1/2 inches (H x W x D). (H is height, the vertical distance from lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.) A structure testing tool is typically used in an educational setting to test the load capacity of model structures.
Science education products incorporate applied math and science principles into classroom and homeschool-based projects. Teachers in pre-K, elementary, and secondary classrooms use science education kits and products alongside science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) curriculum to demonstrate STEM concepts and real-world applications through hands-on activities. Science education projects include a broad range of activities, such as practical experiments in engineering, aeronautics, robotics, energy, chemistry, physics, biology, and geology.
Pitsco Education develops K-12 science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) curriculum, educational kits, and classroom tools. The company, founded in 1971, is headquartered in Pittsburg, KS.
