Metal webs are 'V' shaped components made of galvanised steel and are used in the construction of the ITS Tri-Joist ®
, the innovative floor joist system.
They have connector plates top and bottom for fixing to timber flanges and are available in five different sizes. When combined with the parallel stress graded timber flanges they form Tri-Joist ®
beams, giving an open web floor that can clear span large distances. The metal webs are pressed in to the timber flanges using an Tri-Joist ®
press which uses external and internal clamps to ensure a quality product is manufactured every time.
The application of Tri-Joist ®
with its design practicalities of being an open web based system, is used in a wide variety of construction areas in loose or cassette form for floors and roofs and is applicable for houses, flats and commercial buildings.
