By June 16 , 2016
  • Joists are structural load bearing members that are used to support floors and ceilings.
  • They are made in wood, steel or aluminium and used to span walls and beams horizontally.
  • The Joists are placed equidistantly in both transverse and longitudinal directions to form a criss cross web to support and take loads uniformly.
