Product Highlights

Pasquill supplied over 300 Posi-JoistsTM, which were specified by the architects in lieu of traditional timber joists. Posi-joistsTM are metal web joists used in a broad variety of applications, from domestic housing through to commercial property developments and public sector buildings. They are dimensionally stable, allowing designers particular freedom for internal room layouts, thanks to their ability to cover large spans. Their open web design means easy installation of and access to services and their combination of timber and steel web makes them lightweight but strong.

Pasquill’s design team has been excellent. The team’s technical input has enabled us to meet the twin challenges of having to avoid cold bridging and ensuring enhanced air tightness where the property’s old, original walls meet new ones. The Posi-joistsTM have been lightweight and easy to manoeuvre around the site, and we would definitely use them again. The fact that we can pass cabling and pipework through the open web section really helps to speed things up on site.
