PosiStruts is an engineered flooring and roofing system that combines the versatility of timber with the strength of steel. Forget cutting through solid timber joists and reducing their strength. PosiStruts’ open-web design provides excellent access for services (like plumbing, electrical, heating, airconditioning and ducting) without the need to modify the truss. Also, PosiStruts are considerably lighter than solid timber joists, so handling on-site is easy.
PosiStruts can be specifically designed and engineered to accommodate individual support conditions. They can be manufactured in lengths up to 12 metres, with a clear span of up to 7.9 metres – making them ideal for large, open areas. Plus, the PosiStrut’s I-Beam has a special “Top Chord Support” feature. This means installation is quicker, costs are reduced and there’s no need to use expensive fixings and brackets.
PosiStruts are not only suitable for floors; their innovative design makes them ideal for roof construction as well. PosiStruts can even be manufactured to create curved structures – giving architects and designers greater freedom to create exciting, innovative buildings without the expense or on-site hassles associated with steel.
