These Carmarthenshire Engineered Joists are metal webs or Spacejoists (also known as Posi-joists or Eco-joists). This timber frame project near Llanelli, is from the portfolio of Treharne Homes and we thank Delfrig for submitting these images. He chose to use metal web joists for this build as they can be installed quickly and allow easy passage for services. The joist open web design clearly allows plenty of room for pipes and conduits.
Carmarthenshire Engineered Joists – Access for Services
Easy installation and maintenance of the services within the floor zone is the clear advantage of the Spacejoist open web flooring system. Traditional solid joists may allow for the drilling of holes for services but the placement of these holes must adhere to strict guidelines. Spacejoist metal webs do not restrict you in this way, allowing pipework though the floor zone close to bearing points and delivering maximum design flexibility.
Carmarthenshire Engineered Joists – The Versatility of Spacejoist
Spacejoists embody design flexibility. Adjusting the depth, length and webbing provides an enormous number of different specifications to meet a variety of performance criteria. Open web technology can accommodate your requirements. In roof applications Spacejoists allow deeper, stiffer rafter components. As a high performance panelised wall system, Spacejoists as studwork exceeds the thermal requirements of building regulations and the Code for Sustainable Homes
