i-Joists

Our supplier of joists fulfil the demands from house builders for greater clear spans and better dimensional stability, whilst not increasing the size of the cross section of the construction elements. STEICO joists have a high strength to weight ratio in relation to its equivalent solid timber section. Whilst steel, concrete and large section solid timber components require mechanical handling, the STEICO joists are up to 50% lighter than solid timber and maybe manually handled. Handling becomes easier, thus erection times are significantly reduced, making extensive labour cost savings.
The benefits of using STEICO Joists means we can offer:
  • Lightweight and dimensionally stable products
  • Service: design, take offs, extensive technical brochures
  • Superior strength and easy installation of services
  • Reduction in thermal bridging
  • Availability of a pre-insulated wall stud
  • An easy cutting product (with hand or machine tools)
  • Solid timber flanges – dried, machine stress graded and finger jointed. Webs from high grade natural fibreboard
  • ETA – European Technical Approval
  • National distribution
  • FSC® Certified
