What is a Floor Joist?

By: | October 18 , 2022
  • Floor Joists are timber beams that run parallel to the walls and perpendicular to the beams to form the supportive framework for flooring.
  • The Floor Joists play a very important role in the subfloor as they carry the dead load of the flooring, the dead load of the furniture, the impact and vibrations of people walking.
  • The Joists must be fixed properly and be closely spaced so that they can efficiently take all the loads and prevent bending, warping or sagging of the floor. High-quality timber should be used for the joist as this helps in having a strong, durable level and even flooring.
