To create the perfect deck you need the perfect substructure system, and the latest addition to our range of high-quality decking support solutions is Aluminium Joists.
Strong and durable enough to offer plenty of solid support for any decking project, and particularly useful when building a raised deck area, the aluminium joists are much lighter than traditional alternatives. That making the joists easier to carry and place into position when building the deck, which makes a big difference if you are doing it yourself!
The joists are made from T6 aluminium which is naturally rust and corrosion resistant, but we have chosen to add a powder-coated finish to these joists for even more protection from the elements – we understand how important it is that your deck’s substructure is reliable and long-lasting, and it definitely shouldn’t need treatment once in place, whatever the weather throws at it! The powder coating on the joists is black, so the joists won’t be easily visible through the gaps in the decking, keeping the substructure invisible beneath the boards.
Aluminium joists are always straight (unlike timber joists) which keeps your decking perfectly even, and installation is rapid – the joists are secured into position quickly and easily using our fasteners, which come with time and effort-saving self-drilling screws. The sturdy joists only need to be supported by a pedestal every 1.2m, which saves on both materials and assembly time, reducing the project costs.
These simple and sturdy aluminium joists are a great addition to our range as they are suitable for use on any decking project and are particularly well-suited for building elevated deck areas. Easy to install, reliable and long-lasting, the powder-coated aluminium joists come in 3.6-metre lengths, and can be found here: https://www.thecompositedecking.co.uk/joist/aluminium-joist/
