Features & Benefits
TRIMMABLE END SECTION
Our unique TrimEnds™ products allow the truss to be trimmed on the job site for an exact fit. Other trusses typically cannot be adjusted for site conditions that may not be exactly as expected. TrimJoist® products are also great for angled walls.
Unlike other solid I-type joists, the TrimJoist® features strut webbing. This eliminates the subcontractor’s need to cut holes. Thus, the valuable floor cavity space is available for plumbing, electrical, and duct work, making them great for use in basements. Say goodbye to drop-down ceilings.
FULL 3.5-INCH-WIDE FLANGE
The TrimJoist® features a 3.5-inch flange on both top and bottom. This makes subfloor application simpler and quicker. The wide surface also allows for the application of more glue to resist the shearing action between the joist and subfloor. Also, more nails hit their mark, thereby reducing the likelihood of squeaks.
THICK ORIENTED STRAND BOARD (OSB) ON TrimEnds™ SECTION
Since we use a 23/32-inch-thick OSB in our TrimEnd™ sections, the use of compression or “squash” blocks is almost entirely eliminated. Only under the heaviest of load conditions must additional blocking be used.
THIRD PARTY QUALITY ASSURANCE
Our products are fabricated under third party quality assurance by PFS Corporation.

AVAILABLE AT YOUR LOCAL BUILDING SUPPLIER
Since the TrimJoist® is available from stock at any authorized dealer, there are no lead times. Any overage or underage can be handled by your building supplier — not a factory, which may impose a surcharge for an “extra” truss.
TrimJoist® products offer many benefits to the homeowner, builder, and distributor. If you need further explanation on any of these benefits or would like to talk to us in person, please call us at 800-844-8281.
