Engineered wood joist, more commonly known as an (I- Joist) is a product designed to eliminate problems that occur with conventional wood joists. I-joist product has great strength in relation to its size and weight.
A COMPETITIVE CHOICE
The I-joist is an engineered product that has impressive resistance for its size and weight. It’s a green choice product providing superior quality and performance at a very competitive price. Made of black spruce finger-jointed lumber, it is particularly noted for its competitive price and its many features.
The I-joist manufacturing process ensures product quality and performance. The I-joist is dimensionally stable with fewer imperfections such as wane, camber, warping, and splitting/cracking. The use of finger-jointed lumber also delivers greater product uniformity and straightness. The flanges are subjected to a tensile test to ensure the joints’ structural integrity prior to assembly.
EFFICIENT USE OF RESOURCES
With the I-joist’s optimal geometry, it uses 50% less wood fiber than conventional wood joists and makes more efficient use of our natural resources.
