THE BENEFITS OF ENGINEERED JOISTS

The open web construction allows for service runs without the need for drilling or notching, eliminating typical errors that incur costly remedial work. The consistent depth of these off-site manufactured joists allows for easier floor deck and ceiling installation. These benefits reduce the amount of time contractors spend on site, speeding up construction, and ultimately saves the builder money.
FloorTrus can be typically made to any depth between 219mm and 600mm, with freedom in web configuration to allow for large services in any position. Robust in transit, and with exceptional resistance to dynamic loading, FloorTrus is unrivaled by any other timber engineered alternative. FloorTrus is also the ideal choice for the environmentally conscious, as off-cuts from roof truss production can be recycled for the webs, and the system stands as a serious competitor to concrete floors.
