Engineered joists give you a competitive edge: you need to build it faster, better and for less. Melingoed offer a free floor design service and produce engineered joists to an enormous number of specifications whilst ensuring consistent quality and reliability. We manufacture open-web engineered joists, which makes them relatively light for spans which may be in excess of eight metres. Bespoke design eliminates site alterations and saves timber resources by reducing the amount of waste timber generated during construction.
Engineered Joists – ‘Feels like a Firmer Floor‘
Melingoed manufacture two kinds of engineered joist: the FloorTruss and SpaceJoist. Their design allows them to span greater distances than traditional floor joists and provide considerable economies in building construction. The reduction of internal load bearing walls offers freedom of design and speed of build, whist tradesmen are able to work more productively on site
Melingoed enginered joists offer excellent resistance to dynamic loading and low sound transmission.These improvements in dynamic loading over traditional framed floor systems make the floor feel ‘firmer’ in use. The joists are robust in transport and less prone to damage on site.
Engineered Joists – Glulam Beams
We also design and manufacture glulam beams which provide an attractive alternative in areas where high loading support is required (eg. as a replacement for steel). Laminated timber has excellent strength to weight ratios and can be manufactured to an endless number of specifications and profiles.
