JC Joist Cap

Avoid time consuming labour, costly materials and expensive inspections.

The Joist Cap is an open ended box manufactured from injection-moulded polypropylene
Save Time, Save Materials, Save Costs

  • Totally transparent for easy inspection
  • Air gap for moisture evaporation
  • Air tight seal
  • Simple to fit
  • Flangeless design for placement
  • Moisture ingress prevention
  • Part L and E compliant

Ease of Installation

Built-in tolerance lines for ease of placement. The fins on the sides of the cap provide a key for mortar aiding pointing. Perfect placement is further aided by minimum and maximum fill lines which maintain an air gap to allow the wood to dry out. Joist Cap is attached with a nail each side of the cap. It has no flanges or clips to obstruct restraints or blocks. It also has a reinforced over hit zone.

Terraced Housing And Party Walls

Designed to fit flush for use back to back in terraced housing or on party walls.

Visual Inspection

Translucent material allowing visual inspection for correct load bearing of 90mm on the masonry inner leaf wall.

Air Leakage

Because the seal with the masonry is maintained unwanted air leakage between the ceiling void and wall cavity is stopped and thereby heat loss by air infiltration (as required by statutory regulations concerning the conservation of fuel and power regulations).

Sound Transmission

Stops air paths around joist ends within separating masonry, stopping noise transference across the cavity wall.


Manufactured from a high quality polypropylene. An over hit zone has been included in the robust design. BBA has certified it will last the normal expected life of the building.

Use Below Damp Proof Courses.

Unique design allows no water ingress allowing it to be used below damp proof courses or In old properties where a damp proof course may not be present.

Compliances And Certification

  • BBA Certificate no 06/423
  • NHBC Technical standards
  • The Building Regulations 2000 (as Amended) (England and Wales)
  • A1. B3(1)(2).C2 (b)(c).E1 L1(a)(i) Regulation 7
  • Parts L& E of the Building Regulations
  • BS 5628-1 2005 and BS 5628-3; 2005
