Framing Products


Roof trusses

Universal is the largest roof truss manufacturer in the United States. We combine national buying power with efficient production. We design and engineer our roof trusses using state-of-the-art 3-D modeling software, so we can find fit and elevation problems and solve them on the front end—before they become field problems and change orders for you.

Floor trusses and joists

Universal manufactures a variety of floor joist systems, including standard plated floor trusses and I-joists.

Plated floor trusses

Universal’s open-web plated floor trusses are engineered to carry heavy loads and to span long distances.


I-joists are engineered floor joists that are straighter and more consistent in quality than dimensional lumber.

Prefabricated Wall Panels

Universal’s prefabricated wall panels install faster than site-built walls, with less waste to haul away. And faster framing means that your sales close sooner. Our wall panels are made from 2' x 4', 2' x 6' or 2' x 8' materials in our weather-controlled environment. We use Virtek laser technology on the shop floor so that we can see a finished diagram of each wall, along with all dimensions and cuts as we build the wall. The panels are built to your specifications every time. We generate wall-panel profiles using advanced 3-D modeling so that we can find plan or dimensional problems and devise solutions on the front end. The panels are clearly marked for installation with detailed descriptions.
