The most accommodating joist for flooring.

TotalJoist is an easy to install cold-formed steel floor joist that offers a robust, simplified framing solution compared to traditional wood or steel joists. The proprietary design allows TotalJoist to be installed similar to wood I-joists. With the superior strength and structural integrity of steel, TotalJoist is the most accommodating joist in the floor framing industry.

TotalJoist will save you time and money, and provide efficiencies in installation. Architects love TotalJoist’s ability to dramatically increase design options by allowing for unprecedented spans that create larger, open space rooms with higher strength.

Designed specifically to work with all wall structures including wood framing, steel framing, masonry and and ICF, TotalJoist can be quickly and easily assembled by any framing team or trade.
