How are Pasquill Posi-Joists Made?
Pasquill Posi-Joists™ provide the combination of light weight timber along with the strength of a steel web, which allows a greater span distance than solid joists.
The steel web, also known as a Posi-Strut™, is manufactured by MiTek, specialists in the development of software solutions for structural timber engineering and the provision of steel connector products for floor and roofing systems. These are then used by Pasquill when assembling the bespoke Posi-Joist™.
Posi-Joists™ can be used for floors and roofs, their steel web allows for easy installation and access to services. For further benefits of using Pasquill Posi-Joists or to enquire, click here.
