IHS Installation

The IHS is designed to strengthen I-joists when holes are required to be cut in locations not normally permitted.

  • Allows holes to be cut 50mm from bearing point, which allows services to run close to external walls.
  • Variable hole sizes from 150mm to a maximum width of 250mm.
  • Supplied as 2 sets of 2 interlocking plates (1 set per side of I-joist) which always allows the IHS to be fitted, even when services are already in-situ.
  • Helps to eliminate expensive and time consuming joist trimming for SVP (soil vent pipe) runs.
  • Can be used on single and double ply I-joists.

MJC - How to Install a Multiple Joist Connector 

The multi joist connector (MJC) allows two I-joists or two metal web joists to be fixed together to act as a single unit, transferring the incoming load from the loaded ply to the unloaded ply. The MJC is an improved solution to the traditional filler block detail, which historically has been time consuming to fit and difficult to check if fitted or if fitted correctly. It’s simple and effective design allows one size of product to be used on any joist size – regardless of height or width.

Strong-Portal: Racking Resistance for Timber Frame Structures

Developed to provide enhanced racking resistance in timber framed structures, the Strong-Portal system from Simpson Strong-Tie is environmentally friendly and simple to install.

I-Loft System

I-Loft from Simpson Strong-Tie is a revolutionary way to convert a loft using engineered timber I-beams instead of heavy steel girders.

Timber I-beams are very strong, but also very light, which means they can be passed into the roof space by hand, so there is no need to hire a crane. And since the beams are installed from wall-plate to wall plate they can passed into the roof via the removal of several rows of roof tiles (instead of through side walls). Also, they do not penetrate party walls, which gives a saving in legal fees (on average £750 per wall is saved).

As this video demonstrates, the JES connector allows the modification of the timber I-beams, allowing them to fit into the eaves of the roof.

Safe, simple and cost effective to install.
