Modified Hammer Beam Trusses have a great look with their open design and arched webs and braces. No buttressing is required. A center king post is used in the truss’s interior and a collar tie is placed about half way down the truss giving a great open cathedral look. Graceful arched braces run from the collar tie down to hammer posts, and lower braces run from the hammer tie down to an outside post .Have a Question?
