There is a full range of metalwork that may be used within the construction of an Ecojoists® floor - Restraint Strap, Hangers and Z-Clips. Full details can be found in the Technical Manual.
All timber floors rely on a contribution from the ceiling towards the overall fire resistance of the floor structure. The required fire resistance for domestic floor structures is 30 minutes and for compartment floors is 60 minutes. Data from full scale testing and calculated assessment can be found in the Technical Document.
CRT uses TR 26 timber which is kiln dried and stress graded, which complies with current building regulations.
