Bringing together the lightness of timber and the strength of steel, Posi-joists are a flooring and roofing solution that can span significantly greater distances than traditional products. They also bring other advantages to housebuilding, however.
Only available from MikTek partners such as Nuneaton Roof Truss, Posi-Joists offer significant advantages to contractors, including not only cost savings but also easier installation of services.
Posi-Joists versus traditional joist systems
Designed and manufactured as an easy to install flooring and flat roof system, Posi-Joists are growing in popularity with UK housebuilders. Constructed from parallel timber flanges joined with engineered V-shaped steel webs, Posi-Joists, also known as metalweb joists, combine the lightness of timber with the strength of the Posi-Strut steel web to produce a floor and roof system allowing you to span far greater distances than would be possible with alternative timber products.

This gives you unequalled design freedom across a wide range of applications for both floor and roof in domestic, industrial and commercial applications. The Posi-Joist allows a variety of internal room layouts within an external shell due to its clear spanning capabilities.
Easy access for the installation and maintenance of services in the floor zone is the clear advantage of the Posi-Joist system, and with the ever increasing need for MVHR (Mechanical Ventilation and Heat Recovery) systems, Posi-Joist provides a perfect and simple solution that just isn’t possible with alternative solid timber products.
Less likely to bow or split and also subject to less shrinkage, Posi-Joist are not only robust but bring benefits to the bottom line for your business. By minimising material waste they are not only eco-friendly but also more cost effective. In addition, Posi-Joists contribute to lower costs by reducing on-site joinery costs and with speedier installation.
