When it comes to I-Joists first choice amongst builders and architects is the James Jones JJI-Joist, the UK market leader with an estimated 40 per cent market share.
Today however, JJI-Joists are being used for much more than just floor systems. JJI-Joists are now commonly used as wall studs where the range of depths and 9mm web make them ideal when thermal efficiency and depth of insulation are paramount. A lot of architects are turning to JJI-Joists when designing to Passivhaus standards because of this.
JJi-Joists are also being increasingly used in roof structures as well either as rafters or where cassette panels, formed using JJI-Joists and OSB sheets, are used to create a fully insulated ‘room in a roof’. Today the cassette roof principle has been widely adopted, and not just for houses. JJI-Joist based cassettes are ideal where larger spans – up to 12 metres – are required, such as schools and leisure facilities and where speed of installation is important.
