The ease and flexibility of DryJoist’s design is a perfect match for multifamily projects. The one-step deck joist system creates the structure of a balcony or patio, a finished ceiling below, is 100% waterproof and allows for any type of material to be used on top. Since DryJoist is made with marine-grade aluminum, it has excellent weathering characteristics and provides protection to the components themselves. It is naturally resistant to rot, decay, warping, insects and fire which significantly boosts the longevity of the product meaning it will last a lot longer than pressure treated lumber and other materials typically used to create balconies and patios.
DryJoist is manufactured using 45% recycled content from industrial and post-consumer aluminum scrap and assists builders in achieving points towards LEED credits based on the standards set forth by the LEED Green Building Rating System within the categories of Recycled Content of Materials and Construction Waste Management.
