Timber Frame


Unique System

Unlike conventional timber frame our unique patented system eliminates the use of sheathing board on the outer face of wall panels utilising nail plates and diagonal bracing to provide racking resistance with unprecedented strength & rigidity

External and internal load bearing walls have a finished cross section of 47 x 97mm for improved fixing All panels are manufactured out of the highest grade double vacuum treated TR26 timber

Speed & Simplicity

Panels are supplied to site as open frames so the ease of assembly and handling is significantly improved Top hung Ecojoists eliminate the

requirement for a ring beam and Joist hangers Construction costs are reduced through safer & faster site erection

All goods are referenced for easy location in conjunction with detailed guidelines & drawings provided to site Boards of rigid insulation are fitted externally once the frame has been erected greatly simplifying the build process. minimising transit damage and reducing waste.

Energy Efficiency

Our system is compliant with all current building regulations including Part L. Our system has been tested successfully for air lightness and can achieve U-Values between 0 29 and 0 12 Wtm2K greatly reducing CO2 emissions

The rigid insulation boards fixed to the outside of the panels create a 'warm frame' thus avoiding cold bridging and the risk of condensation, eliminating the need for a separate breather membrane and the taping of Joints

High Flexibility

Any external cladding material, from traditional brick, through to brick slip systems and render panels can be used in conjunction with the system

Metal Web Joists

• Made to measure joists mean no site wastage and quicker installation

• Open web profile allows speed and simplicity of  service and  access runs.

• 40% lighter than equivalent solid Joists making for easier handling on site

• Greater surface areas allow for easier chipboard and plasterboard fixing

• Allows for a true silent floor and minimises shrinkage

• Retro installation of additional services with minimum disruption

Improved Efficiency

Our Eco Joist system provides high integrity joists using upper and lower chords of high grade structural timber interconnected by metal webs to provide the component strength The resultant open web profile has significant benefits in the speed and simplicity of  feeding cables  and  services

Minimised Shrinkage

The upper and lower chords provide a greater surface area for floor and ceiling fixings The use of steel webs in the construction minimises the amount of timber in the joist. Shrinkage in the joists as a whole is reduced proportionally to the reduction in the timber used This allows for a true silent floor and further eliminates the cost of providing for the shrinkage details or warranty and callback costs from warped or irregular shrinkage

Reduced Building Height

The use of acoustic composite flooring panels in combination with timber frame and metal web joists means that the overall building height can be reduced, whilst retaining the same internal build dimensions This creates the possibility of significant cost savings eg brick course(s). labour and time
