 The easi-joist® is a parallel chord truss utilising stress graded timber chords. These chords are plated together with a precision engineered and manufactured structural component called the metal web and, when combined, form the easi-joist®. The easi-joist® combines the lightness of timber with the structural qualities of metal. Together these two materials offer an opportunity for designing commercial, domestic and industrial floor applications with spans equal to and exceeding traditional timber joists and there equivalent timber alternatives, but with better damping and stiffness qualities.
