Fitting the seals: joist height up to 225 mm

For joist heights up to 225 mm use a basic CAPIT joist cap without an extender.


Place the joist cap over the end of the joist so that the rear of the joist cap touches the end of the joist and so that the bottom of the joist cap rests on the blockwork.

If specified or required, fit twist-and-bend restraint straps ensuring that the straps pass through the notches at the bottoms of the flanges of the joist cap or extender and do not lift the joist cap or extender off the masonry below.

Note: Because the joist cap has an open bottom, there is no need to move the joist in order to fit the cap.
