Our unique trimmable ends 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.
OPEN WEB DESIGN
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!
The system's open web design allows subcontractors to easily, practically and quickly run electrical work, duct work and plumbing throughout the flooring system of any building.
EXTRA WIDE FLANGES
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. The extra-wide nailing surface provided by the TrimJoist® makes for a superior installation and more satisfied owners.
THICK OSB TRIMENDS
Because we use a 23/32-inch-thick OSB (Oriented Strand Board) 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.
The engineered strength of the TrimJoist® system provides for longer spans and wider on-center spacing that results in lower costs from both the material and the labor perspective.
Joists come in two-foot incremental lengths, beginning at 4 feet and spanning as far as 30 feet and can be trimmed by up to 24 inches.
