Timber & Joinery Showcase Oak Design Co. James Jones

When it comes to I-Joists first choice among builders and architects is the James Jones JJI-Joist, one of the UK market leaders with an estimated 40 per cent market share. JJI-Joists are being used for much more than just floor systems. JJI-Joists are now commonly used as wall studs where the range of depths and 9mm web make them ideal when thermal efficiency and depth of insulation are paramount. JJI-Joists are also being increasingly used in roof structures as well either as rafters or where cassette panels, formed using JJI-Joists and OSB sheets, are used to create a fully insulated ‘room in a roof’.

The growing popularity of combining contemporary twists with traditional timber frame buildings has risen especially with these garden outbuildings. Other factors such as lower environmental impact mixed with the raw aesthetic charm of these timber frame buildings in many instances have resulted in planning consent being granted where it may not of been granted in the first place, have added to timber frames popularity. A company we found that specialise in all of the above and more, renowned for their quality are an oak framing company based in East Sussex called the Oak Design Co., examples of their projects can be seen on their website.

SterlingOSB StrongFix from Norbord

The new SterlingOSB StrongFix panel from Norbord has been designed to strengthen and provide secure anchorage areas in metal C-stud dry lining applications, for fixtures and fittings up to 400kg – such as cabinets, radiators, wash basins and railings. Simple to fit, SterlingOSB StrongFix is precision- engineered to fit metal C-stud walls with 600mm centres. A continuous recess down one side allows quick installation and ensures a seamless finish, ready for hanging

plasterboard without adding extra thickness to the stud wall. The pre- prepared panels boast the same inherent qualities as SterlingOSB3 which, unlike ply, has no knots or voids and a consistent density throughout that allows fixings to hold securely at any point across the board. Accoya®

Lathams have been a leading distributor of Accoya wood in the UK for more than seven years and have seen its popularity grow significantly, to the point where it is now becoming the material of choice for exterior applications as it can be used for virtually anything, from windows to doors, decking to cladding and siding.
