What is a Posi Joist?
Posi Joists, also known as metal web joists or open web joists, are an innovative structural solution widely used in modern construction.
They offer a versatile alternative to traditional solid timber or engineered wood joists, combining the benefits of both timber and steel in their construction.
Posi Joists consist of a metal web system sandwiched between timber flanges, creating a lightweight, strong and dimensionally stable engineered floor or roof solution.
Where are Posi Joists used?
A customised flooring solution, Posi Joists are used in a wide variety of construction projects, ranging from residential to commercial and industrial buildings.
- New build construction
- Commercial buildings
- Industrial buildings
- Residential housing; social housing, private housing
- Renovations and Extensions
What are the benefits of choosing a Posi Joist flooring platform?
Design Flexibility: Posi Joists allow for greater design flexibility due to their lightweight construction and ability to span large distances.
Easy Installation: Posi Joists are prefabricated to precise specifications, making them quick and easy to install. The open web design provides ample space for routing services, such as plumbing, electrical wiring and HVAC ducts.
Improved Acoustic Performance: Posi Joists offer excellent acoustic properties, reducing sound transmission between floors. The metal web system effectively dampens vibrations and reduces the resonance.
Reduced Deflection and Shrinkage: Posi Joists are engineered to minimise deflection and shrinkage.
Sustainability and Resource Efficiency: The use of metal webs reduces the amount of timber required compared to solid timber joists.
