Truswood is a leading supplier of I-joist systems. I-joists are a building component that can easily be installed, saving time, therefore money. By shipping I-Joists in lengths of 2 increments, jobsite cutting and waste is minimized. I-joists can typically span greater distances than traditional lumber, therefore fewer pieces are required, saving time and money in material cost and labor. I-joists are typically available in longer lengths allowing for multiple span installations, thereby accelerating the installation process and reducing the number of lap joints at load bearing walls or beams. Due to the design of I-joists, warping, twisting and shrinkage is eliminated, creating a uniform dimensionally stable product. Another by-product of the design of I-joists is a lighter weight joist, that can be installed quickly and efficiently. Holes can easily be cut in the wood structural panel webs, for mechanical and HVAC. I-joists are also more environmentally friendly, requiring up to 50% less wood fiber than conventional lumber. I-joists are available in various widths (2 3-1/2)and depths (9-1/2 16). Truswood also supplies layouts for job-site installation, reducing much of the guesswork in the field.
