Hyne "I"-joist Floor System Comes Complete

In early January 2008, Phil Mouldey of Wave Construction started to build four townhouses on his section on Papamoa Beach Rd, in the Bay of Plenty.

All the homes were designed as two-storey dwellings, so when it came to a floor system, he asked his designer to find a mid-floor system that was reliable, quick to erect, didn’t squeak, and made the home owner feel like they were walking on a very solid floor. That’s when Mouldey was introduced to the Hyne system.

The floor is designed by New Zealand Wood Products (NZWOOD). A colour-coded plan supplied for council consent, and a complete take off with all required products is also supplied. The take-off includes all “I” beams, structural beams, boundary joists, flooring material, hangers and nails, as well as the screws and glue.

When the floor is manufactured, NZWood labels all the products to ensure each beam matches the colour-coded plan, making construction on site very easy.

Mouldey says, “I work on my own most times, and I am amazed each time I use the Hyne systems how the products are accurate and consistent. I love how light the 'I' beams are, allowing for a quick and more accurate build.”

Mouldey is so happy with the Hyne system that his last townhouse, which will be his family home, has had the subfloor, mid-floor and roof system all designed using Hyne.
