Metal web joists
Scotts Timber Engineering offers engineered floor joists – the easi-joist metal web joist system – that have become increasingly popular within the UK construction industry. Easi-joist is a precision designed and manufactured open web floor system, providing construction companies with a cost effective alternative to traditional timber joists.
We manufacture our easi-joist metal web joist system using stress graded timber which is plated together with precision engineered metal webs.
Utilising the latest design technology, by Wolf Systems, we have the capability to design and manufacture a complete floor system suited to your requirements and specifications.
Scotts is committed to supplying the best in engineered floor systems that outperform the many alternatives.
WHAT ARE METAL WEB JOISTS?
Easi-joist metal web joists are an innovative timber engineered solution used to support a floor spanning over an open area, commonly forming the upper-storey of a residential building. The floor joists are installed at equal distances apart, parallel to each other.
The open web design of the metal web joist allows for easy installation of service pipes. Additionally, the combination of the lightweight timber and the strength of the metal webs creates a joist that has the capability of spanning greater distances than alternative, traditional joists.
THE BENEFITS OF EASI-JOIST METAL WEB JOIST SYSTEMS?
Open web beam design, allowing for easier installation of service pipes e.g. cabling, heating, plumbing and ventilation
Lower total installed cost with less installation time and calls back to site
Easier handling on site as the easi-joist is significantly lighter than solid timber joists
The easi-joist metal web joists allow for greater span distances than traditional solid joists
A wider fixing point offers a more generous surface for fixing plasterboard and chipboard for floors and ceilings
Compatible sizes matching the depths of solid timber joists
Reduces costly on-site fixing as easi-joist is proven to be easy and quick to install
