Easi-joist

The easi-joist floor system offers clear benefits over sawn timber and other engineered floor joist systems. Not only does it out perform sawn timber in span and dimensional stability, the added benefits of a greater bearing area and open web system makes it easier to install for the carpenter, plumber and electrician, reducing valuable time and cost.

Easi-joist can run over longer, continuous spans and will come to site ready cut along with a custom designed plan; therefore the potential for confusion or errors is essentially removed.

With the latest state of the art software we can design any floor to meet client requirements.

An open web joist is a composite timber and steel joist forming an open web design, which provides the lightness of timber yet with the strength of a steel web. Open web joists are ideal for flat and mono-pitched roofs, and help cater for thicker insulation, creating extremely energy-efficient buildings with low U-values.

Open web joists are lightweight, strong, easy to install and available in long lengths. The open web design means that using these joists can eliminate costly cutting and drilling when installing services, allowing you to incorporate modern ventilation and heat recycling systems which can help to achieve higher CSH levels.

Open web design

This allows for easier more practical installation of services including waste water pipes, electrical cabling, heating pipes and other services. Also, no hole locating or drilling, limits any possibility of incorrect workmanship and reduces labour costs.

Light weight

The combination of smaller timber sections with the light weight metal web means the finished product is lighter than its timber equivalents.

Handling and installation

The large bearing surface allows for speedy setting out of joists, improves joist stability when laying out joists and enables easier fixing of decking materials.

Long-term stability

The reduced sections used in the manufacture of the Easi-joist combined with the metal web means less shrinkage is experienced resulting in a quieter and longer lasting floor system.

Improved sound and vibration

The metal web floor system allows for the installation of a rigid support timber called a strongback. The strongback provides essential damping qualities to the floor by connecting joists together to form a load sharing system that limits deflection and stiffens the floor.
