I-Joists provide an alternative cost-effective solution to a traditional solid wood construction due to its lightweight and high strength properties, enabling longer and lighter spans with lengths up to 13m.
The design of the i-joists also helps create a quiet solution for floors with ‘squeak free’ joists and are ideal for flat or pitched roof structures. Once installed they can provide easy access for services such as wiring and plumbing. Our in-house team can also provide guidance on any hole/s which may need to be incorporated into the joists to cater for pipes and wires. This is recommended as calculations are required to determine the location/s and maximum size of each hole/s to ensure it doesn’t compromise our joists’ structure or key properties.
One key advantage is at Thomas Armstrong (Timber) Ltd, we supply all the relevant timber ancillaries’ items as standard. Depending on the timber product/s ordered, ancillaries items such as straps, hangers, timbers, truss clips, gable straps, valley gutters etc are delivered at the same time ensuring you have everything you need to complete the installation of our products on-site.
