Open web joists give you a competitive edge, providing a number of advantages compared to traditional joists. That’s why designers, specifiers, fabricators and builders’ merchants are turning to Floortrus. When compared to traditional beam construction, the manufactured timber open web joist system is better, stronger, and can be installed faster.
FloorTrus is popular because of its ability to clear-span wide areas without the need for load bearing walls or post and beam requirements.
Build it fast – Once the trusses are on the site, the builder can really start to see the benefits. The consistent size and height of the manufactured FloorTrus will mean easier subfloor material installation. The open web design allows for utilities to be run through the floor system without drilling or notching the joists. These benefits reduce the amount of time trade contractors spend on site, speed up construction, and ultimately save the builder money.
Build it to last – The most robust open web floor system on the market. Use it once and no other floor system will ever feel the same again. The custom designed FloorTrus system reduces the amount of “bounce” that may be found in conventional framed floor joist systems. This premium floor solution provides improved resistance to dynamic loading so it “Feels like a firmer floor.”
