At the beginning of the year, we invested £90,000 in a new floor joist press – the AV Birch Uni-Roll 750. It’s already been earning its place and working hard constructing joists in our Watton warehouse.

Our space joists are extremely popular. The instalment of the Uni-Roll 750 means we’re able to keep up with the demand for this great product.

What are floor joists?

Floor joists, or space joists as we like to call them, are an alternative flooring option to solid timber floor systems. They are made from a top and bottom timber joined together with galvanised steel webbing. This results in a super light beam with greater structural integrity; allowing for a longer span and reducing the need for intermediate support walls, reducing the overall building cost.

You can see why they are so popular!

The AV Birch Uni-roll 750 – better, faster.

Our new machine provides us with the ability to work faster and more efficiently when constructing our space joists. In fact, the machine works as fast as 1 metre per second! The two timber beams are fed through the machine with the webbing quickly embedded along the beam length.

The Uni-Roll 750 comes with a powerful mechanical clamping and laser projection system. Benefits of which include a faster set up time and greater accuracy. The joists are manufactured to exact dimensions, giving you the piece of mind that there won’t be issues when delivered to site.
