One of the primary benefits of MiTek’s Posi-Joists is that they make the installation and maintenance of HVAC and utilities much easier, quicker and more cost-effective. The installation of utilities can be a costly and time-consuming part of construction, but Posi-Joists help to reduce both the monetary costs and the time spent on completing jobs. How do these flooring solutions make this possible?
Large service voids
Posi-Joists feature a unique open web design that provides a sizeable service void through which pipes and ducts can very easily be run. In addition, because of the increased strength and support provided over spans far longer than can be covered by competing products, Posi-Joists allow for greater distances between their centres.
The service void is an innovation that offers tremendous assistance to contractors in the service and utilities industries, providing large, comfortable areas in which plumbers, electricians, and HVAC contractors can work comfortably and conveniently.
Reduced costs and quicker completion
Thanks to the large service voids and the more comfortable conditions for installation and service, contractors can complete their work much more quickly. This amounts to considerable cost savings, as labour hours can be dramatically reduced. It also improves the efficiency of the installation, since the ample space allows contractors room to move and do their best work.
This is only one of the benefits of Posi-Joists, and it is one that should make these engineered flooring joists your first choice for projects involving the installation of ducts, plumbing and wiring. The improved quality of the installation, as well as the overall cost savings, will make the investment in Posi-Joists well worthwhile.
