A manufacturer has an option to CE mark easi-joist® trusses.
The dimensioning of easi-joist® beams includes a vibration calculation according to the Eurocode. If necessary, the stiffness of the beams can be increased with strongbacks which can be strength-graded sawn timber or LVL. Thus is the easi-joist® floor is rigid and effectively reduces vibration caused by steps and home electronics.
Structural layers according to the customer’s wishes can be used above the easi-joist® floor which are taken into account in the vibration calculation. Typically on the upper surface of the easi-joist® floor structure, gypsum casting or other castable mass is used on top of the structural wooden board, which is easy to install with the floor heating pipelines.
