Our New Metal Web Joist Press Has Arrived!
Due to the increase in demand for metal open web joists the decision was made to invest in a state-of-the-art metal web joist press. It has been such a hit with the joist manufacturing team that the other manufacturing teams want to join them in using our new press!
We are now able to press two joists at the same time and up to a maximum length of 12m! By using the built-in mechanical clamps to keep the joist in place we no longer need to pre-assemble and pre-fix the joist frames before pressing. Accompanied with the quick and efficient cycle times it has allowed us to hugely reduce our manufacture time, but also increase the quality of the pressed metal web joists, benefiting our expanding customer base.
As well as the accelerated manufacturing times from our Kent factory our new press offers excellent safety functions. Automatic stop parking bays at either end and the photo electric cell sensors offer ensure the safety of our manufacturing team at all times.
Our metal web joists can be ordered as an individual component or as part of a much larger timber frame house or construction. The metal web joists allow the passing of services through the joist without affecting the structural integrity of the metal web joist itself.
