DIMENSIONAL LUMBER VS THE OPEN JOIST TRIFORCE®

DIMENSIONAL LUMBER

non-predictable floor performance.

Traditional solid sawn lumber is initially cheaper, but shrinking, warping, and twisting become costly for builders to correct after installation.

HUGE WOOD CONSUMPTION FOR SMALL BENEFITS.

Wood is limited to smaller depths and lengths. Limited surface areas increase errors when nailing and lead to floor squeaking.

higher Labor costs.

Traditional lumber needs to be drilled for mechanical installations (HVAC, electrical, plumbing, etc), that means time and effort. Improper drilling often leads to structural problems.

TRIFORCE® OPEN JOIST 

HIGH-PERFORMANCE AND COST-EFFECTIVE.

TRIFORCE®’s total installed costs are less thanks to consistency of the material, meaning superior strength, stability, and reliability. Simply add a 2X strongback at mid-span to dampen floor vibration.

LIGHT WEIGHT AND ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY.

TRIFORCE® provides from 11 7/8" up to 16" depth, from 6' to 30' long, for less material than dimensional lumber. By also eliminating the use of heavy steel plates, this light open web joist can speed installation time, eliminate potential squeaking and reduce labor . Its “I” shape offers a wide nailing surface.

OPEN WEB DESIGN & TRIMMABLE.

Save labor costs by allowing professionals to quickly install mechanicals systems while benefitting from a 24" trimmable end for any out-of-square situation.

EACH AND EVERY JOIST IS TESTED TO MEET THE HIGHEST STANDARDS.

Unlike dimensional lumber, every TRIFORCE® joist is tested to its capacity before leaving the factory. This testing backs up a unique lifetime product warranty.

WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT TRIFORCE®

Your innovative open joists are a good example of never taking-for-granted, the down side of certain building products, just because everybody else uses them.

TRIFORCE is probably the best example of what can be accomplished if we ask ourselves, “why do I continue to choose what everybody else specifies, without considering the extra work + cost that product generates?”.
