Floor Products | Engineered Floor Joists
Our engineered floor joists are the easiest and quickest solution to floor installations. Using either our I Joist or Metal Web products, all joists are precision cut to size and delivered with clear plans, fixing instructions and required metalwork.
Unsurprisingly, pre-engineered floor joists have become more and more commonplace on all types of construction sites. Significant savings are achieved both in terms of joinery and project overheads, whilst providing a weathertight shell earlier.
I-Joists are comprised of a central OSB web between solid top and bottom flanges. These floor joists resist bending and with the webs, provide outstanding shear resistance. Our Masonite I-beam is an engineered wood product that has great strength in relation to its size and weight.
As an alternative, we also offer Wolf Easi-joist metal web solutions. A designed metal web structure between solid top and bottom flanges can offer greater spans than I-beams, and is often preferred because of the open spaces in the structure save time for other trades as they first fix electrical and plumbing etc.
Flooring Joists- supply only and supply & fit service
Our customers vary from local builders to some of the large nationals and we service sites across Cumbria, Lancashire, Cheshire, Greater Manchester, Yorkshire and Humberside. We can also offer a supply and fit service if required.
All of our factory engineered flooring solutions are supplied with joist layout drawings, engineering calculations and material details.

I-Beams / I-Joists
The I-Beam has many advantages over conventional construction timber and is designed to give strength to weight ratio which enables the manufacture of longer and lighter structural members. The name derives from the ‘I’ shaped cross section of the product where the vertical element is held between two horizontal flanges. Each joist is manufactured to precise specifications and efficiently supports both bending and shear in the plane of the web. Resistance to shrinkage is inherent in the product and therefore provides a long-term stable and quiet flooring solution.Find out more
Metal Web - Easi-Joists®
Easi-Joists® use a metal web plane between the two flanges. This results in a light-weight timber product with the core strength from its steel structure. This type of solution offers great flexibility in the build, with long-spans increasingly possible and open spaces for the provision of building services.Find out more
Floor cassettes can incorporate either our I-Beam or our Easi-Joists® systems. Decking material (OSB boarding, Plywood or Chipboard) is then added to create complete manufactured cassettes to build the floor with. This method of construction has become increasingly popular within timber frame construction because of the speed of installation, and with built in lifting straps it makes it simpler to lift the cassettes into position. Floor Cassettes also improve Health & Safety during construction, eliminating risks associated with working from height and providing a working platform upon installationFind out more
