Engineered metal web joists, also known as open web joists, are a type of joist used in modern construction to support floors and ceilings. They are made by combining metal webbing with timber, creating a strong lightweight joist that can span greater distances than traditional solid timber joists.
Our engineered metal web joists are designed to be versatile, as they can be used for a variety of construction projects, from residential to commercial buildings. They are also pre-cut to specific building dimensions, which helps to reduce labour costs and the chances of on site changes being made.
These joists are designed to be lightweight, yet strong and rigid. The open web design of these joists allow for easy installation of other utilities, such as plumbing and electrics. This makes them ideal for use in modern, energy efficient buildings, where the placement of these systems are a key consideration.
Our open web joists deliver outstanding acoustic performance without the need for any additional insulation, plasterboard or resilient bars. They also have strong fire resistant properties, as our flooring solutions are approved by the Structural Timber Association (STA) as an acceptable option to achieve a fire robust solution throughout the construction process.
