Engineering and Drafting

  • Computer-aided design process using cutting-edge technology that allows for the identification of several alternatives in the presence of complex loads in order to ensure the optimal sizing of joist components
  • Our engineering team stands poised to assist you with technical questions regarding the use of long-span joists in specific projects
  • Canam’s extensive and experienced drafting team enables it to produce 100% of drawings
  • Designs are produced in accordance with Eurocode, National Annexes and Canam Joist specifications



  • State-of-the-art production equipment, computer-assisted manufacturing processes and numerically-controlled machinery are integrated in our everyday operations
  • Joists are made from high-grade steel profiles (hot or cold-formed)
  • Fabrication is executed in a specialised facility where joists are assembled in automated templates and entirely welded by certified workers



  • A primary coat of paint is applied in the shop using a dipping tank to protect Canam Joists (Grey RAL 7030 or according to option). It is also possible to have the joists galvanised or to add an additional coat of paint for extra protection.



  • Our meticulous quality control systems ensure that all products correspond to your exact specifications
  • All our welders, inspectors and quality assurance technicians are certified and we also perform visual inspections on 100% of welded joints and conduct non-destructive testing as needed


Transportation and Handling

  • Canam’s advantage has always been its ability to deliver on time, regardless of where or when you need your products. We well understand that you cannot afford to keep your on-site erection crews waiting, which is why meeting your deadlines is always a top priority.
  • An installation manual is provided along with erection drawings for each project. This manual, which is a general guide for the installation of long-span Canam Joists, covers a wide range of topics, including delivery, lifting, storage, joist identification, installation, etc.
