Drywall Framing System
TradeReady® steel joists are one of the primary components that make up the TradeReady® floor system. These joists feature large extruded holes that accommodate HVAC, mechanical, plumbing and sprinkler runs. The joist also features a series of smaller holes for electrical and technology lines. TradeReady® steel joists are precision manufactured from corrosion-resistant galvanized steel. Steel joists offer consistent quality, predictable performance and high strength to weight ratio, and they are dimensionally stable. They won’t expand, contract or shrink; they won’t warp, crack or twist. Steel joists integrate easily with other building materials such as structural steel, concrete, ICF and wood construction.
Joists can be ordered in standard lengths or to your exact specifications to minimize waste. Consult the technical design guide or the TradeReady® Steel Joist Design Guide for physical and structural properties, span charts and loading data.
