Features & Benefits of Eco Joists

Long spans: Longer spans are achievable in comparison to solid timber. This may eliminate the need for intermediate load bearing internal walls, thus reducing a building’s overall cost.Reduced wastage: Manufactured to size eliminates site alterations saving time on site.

Design flexibility: EcoJoists can be designed top hung to eliminate the rim board, decreasing the risk of timber shrinkage to improve air tightness.

Less timber and fewer webs: Tests show that the NEW EcoJoist system requires less construction material - saving cost.

Sound performance: EcoJoist delivers outstanding acoustic performance to comfortably pass English and Welsh regulations, even complying with the more stringent 43dB Scottish regs without additional insulation, plasterboard or resilient bars.

Easy to handle: Now even lighter, the lightweight construction makes EcoJoist easy to individually manhandle on site without the need for crane hire.

Wide nailing surface: Fixing of floor and ceiling materials is simpler and quicker due to the minimum chord width of 72mm.

Engineered: EcoJoists are manufactured offsite ensuring consistent quality and reliability.

Open web design: Fast and simple installation of services, without the need for drilling or notching. Joists can accommodate large services such as Mechanical Heat Recovery Systems.

Attic bottom chords: SpaceJoists can be incorporated into attic truss bottom chords to achieve greater spans, deeper insulation and provide a service void.
