Manufactured Joist I Beam Pull Up Bar
Newer construction is trending toward wood I beams also referred to as, manufactured beams, quiet floors, manufactured joists, floor joists, I joists, Rim boards, wood joist, wood I beam joists and engineered joists. We are seeing these applications in ceilings above garages in east, west and Midwest home construction as well as large apartment and condominium complexes where individual garages are on the ground level. These beams are structurally sound and reliable as 2X4 studs when installing a pull up bar into them. In my experience installing into these beams when drywall is applied I found my stud finder did not read them reliably and I had to resort to the old finger tap or drill and pray method to locate the beams. The 4″ lag screw we supply with each Stud Bar is longer than necessary when installing into wood I beams as they are not as thick as a 2X4. We recommend using a 3″ lag screw which we can supply upon request in your order notes.
