New metal web RIBA CPD

ITW Industry, developers and system suppliers of SpaceJoist metal web floor joists, SpaceRafter metal web rafters and SpaceStud performance wall studs announce their RIBA Core Curriculum CPD titled “Benefits of structural metal web timber frame components”.

ITW Industry’s 45 minute RIBA CPD, which is conveniently delivered by the means of an onsite seminar, provides attendees with a foundation knowledge of structural metal web timber frame components. The CPD module falls within the RIBA Core Curriculum category of “Designing and building it: design, construction, technology and engineering” and covers the open web components’ construction, thermal efficiency and sound performance to the latest standards, building codes and regulations, plus various informative case studies.

ITW Industry, which includes the Alpine and Gang-Nail truss system brands, are well positioned to deliver such a metal web CPD with their long history and expertise in timber engineering. Alpine originally supplied SpaceJoist back in the early ‘80s, while the Gang-Nail brand has to some extent established itself as a generic name for the punched nail plates used in timber engineered components such as roof trusses – much like the hoover and sellotape brands in their markets. Together as ITW Industry, their metal web timber frame systems have seen considerable research and development, culminating in producing the best performing metal web joist (SpaceJoist) on the market and the pioneering performance wall stud system (SpaceStud).
