Open Web Joists from OFP Timber Framed Homes
 
Open web floor joist solutions from OFP Timber Framed Homes are the quickest and most efficient method of timber engineering in the timber frame market. An open web joist consists of two lengths of timber joined with metal “V”s to form a structural joist capable of spanning large distances. At OFP Timber Framed Homes we produce our own open web floor joist in our timber frame factory at our HQ in Sandwich, Kent.
 
The benefits of using open web joists are numerous. Open web construction allows for service runs without the need for drilling or notching. This eliminates any risk of follow-on trades incurring any remedial costs. The consistent depth of OFP Timber Framed Homes open web joists allow for an easy floor and ceiling installation – saving you money through spending less time on site.
 
The opening sizes of the OFP Timber Framed Homes open web joist system are set up so that the installation of ducting is a simple and speedy process. As the requirements for the Code for Sustainable Homes are becoming more stringent, the requirement for better U-values will increase – therefore meaning there is a higher demand for larger service voids to accommodate the additional ducting.
 
In terms of the environmental qualities of the OFP Timber Framed Homes open web joist system, all timber is qualified under the OFP Chain of Custody management system – certified by PEFC and FSC. The use of timber for your floor construction needs will mean a smaller carbon footprint and ensure the use of the only sustainable construction material.
 
At OFP Timber Framed Homes we offer open web joists as part of our timber frame whole package or as floors that can be fitted in masonry construction, or even stand alone floors for the self builder.
