suspended timber floor. a suspended timber floor at ground or intermediate level is created by timber joists spanning from wall to wall to support the floor decking or boarding. the joists are supported on the outside walls by means of metal joist hangers built into the brickwork. interim support is also provided by the sleeper walls already

lesson 4 suspended timber floor construction parts of a suspended timber floor the suspended timber floor involves the over site concrete slab, honey combed sleeper walls, wall plates and floor joints. the diagram of figure two shows the linkages between the various components of the floor. the examination of the illustration can help you
because the floor is suspended above the ground, it should absorb less moisture than a solid floor. however, it is important to note that the cavity between the concrete slab and the timber floor needs to be ventilated well or dry rot may occur. a solid floor is much simpler and cheaper. it consists of solid concrete built into the ground.

suspended ground floors early forms. as mentioned above, the basic design principle for the early suspended floors was for timber joists to be raised above the ground normally being supported in some way by the external walls together with a series of sleeper walls or intermediate supports.
timber suspended ground floors, including the decking material, shall be designed to: a support self weight, dead loads and imposed loads every part of the void under a timber suspended ground floor should be thoroughly ventilated through openings on at least two opposite sides. where this is not possible, effective cross ventilation from

installing celotex insulation in suspended timber floors. if a suspended timber ground floor features in a new-build project, it is likely to be over a basement. the basement will be part of the buildings thermal envelope - in other words, it is a heated space - and the floor will not require thermal insulation.
suspended timber ground floors are a relatively strhtforward construction detail, but one that, if installed incorrectly, can be disastrous for the client. there are thus multiple key points to note. commonly used in domestic projects, suspended timber ground floors are usually installed to match an existing floor construction and ground levels.
suspended timber floors are a common structural element in many period properties and we offer a range of floor heating systems specifically designed for suspended timber floors. water systems retrofitting a floor heater with the original timber floorboards, as opposed to a new timber floor finish, can make for a complicated project.
