Add strength to your building with our highest-quality engineered joists.
An engineered wood joist, also known as an I-joist, is a product designed to eliminate problems that can occur with conventional wood joists. Invented in 1969, the I-joist is an engineered wood product that has great strength in relation to its size and weight.
The main benefit of using engineered joists instead of traditional wooden joists is that they can be used for much longer spans without additional support needed from other materials such as steel or concrete reinforcements, which increases costs significantly compared to using only wooden joists alone. This makes them very cost-effective compared to using reinforced concrete blocks or steel beams for example which means less money spent on labour costs and less time spent on installation.
Engineered joists are used throughout the house building industry for their larger spans and lightweight nature. They can be supplied up to 14m long depending on the design. Our specialist team will be able to create a joist system design specific to your project and can adjust the criteria to your requirements.
Engineered Joists Constuction
I-joists are manufactured with a series of parallel beams with webbing between them. This webbing gives the joist its strength while also providing support for the weight placed on it by floorboards, ceilings, and roofs. These beams are made from dimensional timber that has been laminated together to form one long beam. The strength of these beams depends on how many layers there are in each layer of dimensional timber being used.
