The Swedish manufacturer, Masonite Beams, has developed a building system that allows the construction of timber-framed buildings up to eight storeys in height, with internal clear spans of up to 10m.

Using its range of I-joists, wall studs and laminated boards, the system enables flexible internal spaces to be created, which is a particular advantage given the current trend towards open-plan living space. Each component is fabricated off site and is available pre-insulated and fully sound and fire compliant. The I-joists use wood fibre certified by the Forestry Stewardship Council with full chain of custody processes.
