Structural Framing Systems

iLevel Trus Joist Silent Floor System™

TJI® Joists revolutionized the way you build floors.
Trus Joist developed the wooden I-joist 35 years ago. Engineered to provide strength and consistency, these joists are a key part of the FrameWorks® Floor System. The dimensional stability of TJI joists helps them resist the warping, twisting, and shrinking that can lead to squeaky floors. TJI joists are light weight and come in long lengths. This helps save on labor, because they're faster and easier to install than traditional framing. These same features have made them a popular choice for roof joists as well.
