Loadbearing - timber joist floors

Internal and separating floor systems

Timber joists are widely used within internal floor and separating floor construction, both in residential and commercial applications.

Our range of timber joist floor solutions include cavity insulation, high-performance Gyproc plasterboards and Gypframe sound insulating bars. Our solutions maximise acoustic and fire performance, to both meet, and significantly exceed, the requirements of Building Regulations, for new build and refurbishment projects.

  • When Gyproc plasterboards are directly fixed, defects are minimised using British Gypsum Drywall Timber Screws
  • Nail popping is eliminated through the use of Gypframe RB1 Resilient Bar and Gypframe RB2 SureFix Bar
  • Significantly enhanced acoustic performance is achieved when Gypframe RB1 Resilient Bar is specified alongside Gyproc SoundBloc plasterboard linings
  • Available with Activ'Air technology, to capture and convert Volatile Organic Compounds
  • Sound insulation airbourne: 36 - 66 (Rw dB)
  • Sound insulation impact: 78 - 48 (Lnw dB)
  • Fire resistance: 30 - 120 (mins)
