Sustainable Building Technologies

web joists / trusses

Timber engineered products such as web joists and roof trusses are well established in the UK building industry. Although not a renewable technology, as they are timber based, they do have significant environment advantages over other structural building materials such as steel and concrete. Timber trusses and engineered beams have a high strength to weight ratio and so use less raw material than traditional timber joists or rafters.

Open web joists offer particular advantages to sustainable building as they can incorporate ducting for modern MVHR systems (without costly drilling and cutting) which will help towards achieving higher ratings in SAP and the Code for Sustainable Homes.

We can supply timber engineered products throughout the UK, all we need is a full set of drawings to prepare our quotation from.
