Ecojoist® - Ninja quiet, Sumo strong

Ecojoist® floor beams are a natural progression from timber frame walls and trussed rafters. Available in six different sizes (ranging from 195mm to 425mm), ecojoists have many practical benefits. Its lightweight construction ensures a reduction of site wastage, minimal shrinkage and an elimination of surface run pipework. In addition, economical roofs of prefabricated lightweight trussed rafters can be designed for all applications, from the build of small extensions to large commercial schemes.

Ecojoist® Features

Wide range of sizes

The depth, length and specification can all be adjusted to produce joists with specific performance criteria.

Design flexibility

Metal web joists can eliminate the need for loadbearing intermediate walls.

Dimensional stability

The use of smaller timber sections together with the metal webs means that there is less shrinkage and a reduced risk of squeaky floors.

Improved sound performance

Metal web joists when used with a rigid ‘Strongback’ reduce vibration of a floor.

Lightweight

he open web structure means they are lighter to handle than solid timber joists.

Reduced costs

Increased spans, simpler installation of utilities, flexibility in design and faster erection can result insignificantly reduced building costs.

Additional Components

Spandrel panels offer time and cost savings in replacing the need for blockwork within the roof space above the ceiling line.
Attic trusses have proved a popular and cost-effective solution to gain extra habitable or storage space within the roof of a project.

Ecojoist® - How It Works

Ecojoists® are a very simple concept that has raised the bar in engineered construction to an unprecedented height. The timbers used for Eco-joists are the same as the walls, being Pine/Spruce/Fir. The Timber Strength Class (TSC) is raised to TR26 form C16 and a typical timber size actual is 47mm x 72mm or 47mmx 97mm. The joist consists of two timbers (Top chord and Bottom Chord) these are held together by metal web flanges pressed into the top and bottom chords by a special machine.


Ecojoist® Summary

Ecojoists® can span greater distances than solid or fabricated timber alternatives and, given that they provide an economic alternative to steel or concrete beams, considerable savings can be made in the use of raw materials.
