Allied Concrete can provide the product and the professional assistance to install the highly cost effective Block Joist System.
The name of this revolutionary building system says it all: Concrete blocks placed side-by-side between open web steel joists resulting in strong and level concrete floors and roofs. It's simple, quick and economical; the new and "sensible way to build your concrete floor or roof."
The Block Joist System is used to construct interior and garage floors, decks and roofs. Once installation is complete, the block surface and joists are filled and covered with grout resulting in a smooth concrete surface, similar in appearance to poured concrete. You can then leave the resulting surface exposed or cover it with wood, decorative concrete, carpet, brick or tile. Regardless of its finish, the floor created will never squeak or sag, and with a thermal mass four times that of wood, it is very energy efficient.

"The Ultimate in Simplicity"
A BLOCK JOIST® System installer needs only gloves, a spirit level, a pinch bar, a wide squeegee and a five gallon bucket to follow these five simple steps:
Step 1 Place the joists.
Step 2 Place the concrete blocks
Step 3 Pour grout to fill the joists.
Step 4 Place the transverse wires.
Step 5 Dump grout on blocks & spread
with a wide squeegee.
"That's all there is to it!"
Masonry contractors are already familiar with the materials, and they can install the system very efficiently.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS:
Joist spans up to 20 feet can easily be handled by two workers. Individual blocks weigh less than 30 pounds each. All components can be easily handled without machinery.
||Consistent and Economical Pricing
Unlike prices for wood, concrete block pricing remains stable and predictable and more cost-effective than wood.
||More Durable than Wood
Concrete block is four times heavier and denser than a comparable wood and becomes stronger over time vs. wood. Its greater strength allows it to resist damage from salt air, rain, snow and hurricane force winds as well as insect damage.
Block's thermal mass contributes to reduced heating and cooling costs.
Concrete resists the passage of flames, smoke and heat.
