WebSpan - OFP's Open Web Joist System
...taking the strain out of timber frame
Due to client feedback, OFP are now producing our own open web joists from our factories based in Sandwich, Kent.
Our WebSpan Joist System has been introduced to allow a greater range of flexibility and ease of installation for follow-on trades, avoiding the need for solid timber solutions and minimising costly repairs due to incorrect 'knocking out' of holes for services.
Benefit's of our WebSpan Joist System:
- Ease in installing services to your project – eliminating the need for drilling or notching and allowing tradesmen to work more productively on site.
- High engineered strength and rigidity – spanning up to 8m with no need for intermediate load bearing walls.
Our WebSpan joist can be fitted in masonry builds, as a “supply only” piece of kit, or as part of a timber frame structure. As it is so flexible and easy to install it is as suitable for the self-builder as the multiple unit developer.
This is the joist of the future. As Building Regulations demand greater thermal efficiency from your project, and so all ducting and service requirements will increase, the benefits of an open web system outshine all alternative joisting options.
We at OFP Timber Framed Homes are looking to the future, and strive to remain market leaders and trend setters within the timber frame industry. We believe open web joist will save you time and money throughout your whole project, and not just the timber frame element.
