In addition to standard joists, Canam Buildings designs and manufactures joists with more complex forms to fit bold architectural needs or simply to cover large spans.
Special joists, with a single-, double-, triple- or multi-pitched profile, allow top chords to be sloped so as to accommodate a variety of architectural demands. These pitched joists can be easily specified to develop a gable feature on a roof line or a drainage slope within the span of the joist.
Cranked joists, with a single-, double-, triple- or multi-pitched profile, allow top chords to be sloped so as to accommodate a variety of architectural demands. These pitched joists can be easily specified to develop a gable feature on a roof line or a drainage slope within the span of the joist.
Canam Buildings prides itself of being a flexible and solution-focused company. As a result, our company can readily design and manufacture “non-conventional” joists. Please contact a Canam Buildings representative to confirm the feasibility and limitations of a project, as well as specifications required for the design.
Canam joists and joist girders components must be installed with efficiency while maintaining a safe environment on the jobsite. Some of Canam’s partners are offering you their products in order to maximize efficiency during the installation process.
A Canam Buildings joist girder is a primary structural component of a building. Generally, it supports floor or roof joists in simple span conditions or other secondary elements (purlins, wood trusses, etc.) evenly spaced along the length of the joist girder.
The loads applied to a spandrel joist girder come from only one side; on an inside bay, the loads are applied on either side of the joist girder.
