Space Joists (open web joists)

Introducing SpaceJoists, the superior alternative to traditional solid timber and TJI joists offering unrivaled performance.

Lighter, stronger, easy to install…

The go-to joist for greater design flexibility, durability and cost effectiveness. Space Joists comprise of top and bottom timber flanges, joined and fabricated with galvanised steel webbing. This patented, extensively developed, steel webbing significantly reduces timber shrinkage, movement and deflection, compared with traditional Joists or other engineered joist systems.

For builders that means a major reduction in call-backs concerning creaking floors, cracked bathroom floor tiles or cracks along ground floor ceilings, all caused by traditional solid joists drying and shrinking.
