STEICO launches Total Floor Initiative

// the building envelope

STEICO one of the largest suppliers of engineered I Joists to the UK market and the largest producer in Europe introduces STEICO total floor.

Combining high performance STEICO Joist and LVL with the durable, higher density and stable new durelisdek in one package from a single source gives house builders and developers a simple specification choice and ensures the floor deck performs fully to its designed potential.

The floor unit is a vital part of the new build structure and any on site problems due to excessive deflection, movement or exposure damage can result in expensive remedial work and dissatisfied customers. The risk of squeaky or noisy floors in situ can also be minimised by the assurance of performance the specification of STEICO total floor gives.

All the total floor components including accessories are supplied to the STEICO dealer network, timber frame or off site manufacturer and the complete floor designed, cut and packaged to the builder’s specification.

STEICO offers extensive design support and works with dealers, manufacturers and volume house builders to ensure the products are used in the best way possible, value engineered for efficiency and importantly provide excellence in performance.

Andy Moore, UK Managing Director (Sales) says “For some time we have been monitoring performance of I Joist floors on sites and observing some of the issues which are clearly evident including noisy floor units, heavily swollen decking and inappropriate fixing methods. These cause at best inconvenience to the developer or house holder and at worst have serious cost and reputation implications. Taking control of the complete floor unit, providing top class components and working with the total supply chain to ensure design, fabrication and fixing methods are correct is a real first in the industry and we are confident the benefits in use will be clear to see”.
