Innovative flooring set to reach our shores

Unequalled design freedom continues to set apart the Posi-Joist timber and steel web system from everyday flooring solutions. Combining the strength of Posi-Strut steel with the lightness of timber allows designers to span far greater distances while being able to adjust the depth, length and width to produce a greater variety of specifications. This occurs while still adhering to rigorous performance standards.

Streamlined installation

Keeping up with the demand for the installation of mechanical ventilation and heat recovery systems, Posi-Joist is poised to streamline the construction process by allowing easy access for the maintenance and placement of utilities in the floor zone. Hennie Viljoen, Regional & Marketing Manager of MiTek, says, “There are many benefits to using Posi-Joist, from the ability to design creative floors to the variety of internal room layouts that a clear span system offers.”

Cost saving advantage

Posi-Joist has been used in countless successful applications and construction projects across New Zealand, the UK and Australia. Hennie says that Posi-Joist’s ability to span greater distances than its timber competitors, coupled with its open web design, gives contractors several important cost saving advantages when compared with various solid joist alternatives.

Increased installation space

The system allows for increased joist centres because of its span capabilities, reducing material content. Simpler and far quicker installation of services and utilities is now possible, reducing both labour costs and on-site construction time. “MiTek is very confident that Posi-Joist will have a huge impact on the South African market once introduced,” says Viljoen.

Posi-Joist advantages:
• Lightweight and strong
• Greater span distances
• Adjustability: length, width and height
• Easy underfloor access
• Cost savings

Manufacturing the joists in a controlled offsite environment ensures a quality product that is delivered to specification. Thanks to precision engineering, the job can be completed far more quickly while realising worthwhile savings.

The flooring industry can now look forward to putting another innovative flooring solution on its list of options to increase value and ease of construction.
