Our ‘Joist Hangers’ are used to trim around openings forming void areas in the floor, i.e. manholes, light or stair wells etc. The units work in conjunction with the floor beams to form an opening to suit various sizes thus eradicating the need to install costly steel beams.
When the product is used with the 150mm deep floor beam, the ‘Joist Hanger’ will be hung over the top of two floor beams allowing for a third floor beam to be laid at an adjacent angle. Alternately in circumstances where a 225mm beam is utilised the ‘Joist Hanger’ will be hung over the top of one floor beam only.
Care must be taken to grout all metal fittings in well and position these in the dry zone above the DPC.
The ‘Joist Hanger’ is to be used only when designed by Litecast, therefore we will provide a full design and guarantee, as well as stipulating a supplying the correct quantity of ‘Joist Hangers’ to suit your requirements.
