Benefits of Steel Flooring For Institutional Buildings


Easy and Fast to Install

Steel has a high strength-to-weight ratio, reducing construction timelines.


Engineering Support

TotalJoist’s institutional construction team works with you at every step, from pricing to design to installation.


Manufactured in Offsite Facility

Most of the steel fabrication takes place in a quality-controlled facility, reducing weather dependency and onsite construction storage.


Highly Durable and Resistant to Damage

Steel resists warping, cracking, moisture and insects, while offering a one-hour fire rating (UL, ULC Rated).


Excellent Acoustics

TotalJoist’s Composite TotalJoist uses concrete poured on dovetail-shaped steel decking to reduce noise and vibrations from tenants or facility owners.


Better Use of Space

Our proprietary joists come with large pre-punched service holes for utilities to run through, reducing bulkheads and increasing usable space.
