Any joist or beam end in contact with a wet wall will eventually succumb to fungal attack and decay (rot) thus losing its strength, it may eventually break.
Should these situations arise, Platinum Chemicals stock a wide range of products to help with such problems such as timer joist repairs.
Bower Beams Joist End Repair Plates: Used to effect a quick, cheap and easy but secure and long lasting joist end replacement.
Independent tests have shown that the Bower Beam joist end repair plates is capable of withstanding loads in excess of the design loads of the wooden joists they are supporting which will in turn, be isolated from the source of the dampness and further risk.
All of these plates can be used as timber splicing plates by fastening an equal number of coach screws either side of the splice.
Bower Beams are supplied in pairs, available in 4 Sizes.
