Architectural Technologist – iJoist end support for loft convertions

Well some items in the post can prove useful, and this little gem from Simpson Strong tie is one of those little gems that makes life easy. I do a lot of loft convertions and the problem is alway getting in steel to the loft area, I split it, and try to keep the weight down, recently I have started using ijoists, but as alway, there is a little snag and thats the end of joist detail at the eaves, with steel , I have a nice cut away detail that almost always works, but cutting iJoists needs a little more care, and this two piece metal reinforcement for the cut end of an iJoist is the answer, I like this and will start to specify it were I use iJoists.
I followed the article and went into Google to search for more info on this subject, and spent a good 1/2 hour of CPD checking out their claims and other manufacturers of iJoist to see if I could improve on my spec.
