Our delivery/collection schedule operates on a week commencing basis, if you were to place an order today the following dates are the earliest your order would be available for delivery/collection.
Trussed rafter (roof truss) orders for delivery/collection on week commencing Monday 27th May and easi-joist® (Posi-Joist™, SpaceJoist™, Ecojoist®) orders for delivery/collection on week commencing Monday 27th May.
As always terms and conditions apply, the main one being that you have confirmed the sizes are correct and that your payment has cleared before an order can be manufactured and delivered. Payment can be made by one of the following methods:
- Debit card (No surcharges) in person or over the phone (Delivery usually around 5 working days)
- Mastercard Personal - Credit card (surcharge of up to 2.09% applies) in person or over the phone (Delivery usually around 5 working days)
- Visa Personal - Credit card (surcharge of up to 2.09% applies) in person or over the phone (Delivery usually around 5 working days)
- Mastercard/Visa Business - Credit card (surcharge of up to 2.09% applies) in person or over the phone (Delivery usually around 5 working days)
- Cash in person (Delivery usually around 5 working days)
- Cheque through the post or in person (Can take 5 working days to clear so delivery is usually around 10 working days)
- Bank transfer (Can take 3 working days to clear so delivery is usually around 5 working days)
The reason we apply a surcharge to credit card transactions is to cover the cost of the commission charges that we have to pay to our credit card terminal provider for those payments made by credit card. For example if a trussed rafter roof package costs £5000.00 and the commission charge is 2.09% we would have to pay the terminal company £104.50, for that one job it may not sound like a lot but when we are supplying hundreds of roof & floor packages that total soon adds up. It is for that reason that we recommend using other payment methods for which Customers are not charged for making payment by such as bank transfer, cheque or debit card.

One of the services we provide is design and manufacturer of trussed rafters and easi-joist metal web floor joists on behalf of Builders Merchants. On the Isle of Man we provide this service to MFBP Building Supplies in Douglas and Island Timber & Building Materials Ltd in Ballasalla. (Contact details at bottom of this post)

They will then contact us, we will produce a design, and when requested manufacture your roof or floor, we will then ship your order to the docks, were MFBP or Island Timber will then take over and deliver your order to site.
If you don't want to go through one of our partners on the Isle of Man you can of course place you enquiry directly with us and we can arrange for an outside haulier to collect your order from our factory and deliver it to your site on the Isle of Man. Please note however that delivery costs to the Isle of Man are beyond our control and are set by the outside haulier.
One of the biggest projects on the Isle of Man that we have been involved with was for the Isle of Man Government in 2002, we designed and manufactured the roof's for the Southern Group Health Practice and the Ambulance Station both of which are located in Port Erin. Combined the two buildings consisted of well over 1000 trussed rafters, as well as additional infill timbers and metal fixings. The entire project took about 50 hours in total to manufacture, we broke it up into five phases which were manufactured and delivered over a period of a couple of weeks, mainly because the size of each delivery is restricted to allow it to fit on the ferry but also so that we could continue manufacturing for our other customers as well.

Check out our flickr photostream, http://www.flickr.com/photos/eandhbaxendale where you can find hundreds of photos from past projects we have been involved with. This photo shows how versatile trussed rafters are, they can be manufactured in many shapes and sizes, including curved.
I have now converted the post ‘Boar’s Den Barn Framed by TRA Member’ into a page in the ‘Portfolio’ section of the site, this saves me having duplicate content in both a post and a page. It has also given me the opportunity to expand the content a little, I have added a small selection of photos from our Flickr photostream to the page, currently there are only 20 out of the 70′ish photos that form the Bear’s Den Barn set on Flickr. I also plan on expanding the page further over the next month or so, with more details about the easi-joist and trussed rafters used in it’s construction.
You can find out more about the Boar’s Den Barn project by visiting it’s new page.
I can now confirm our trussed rafter enquiry form is now working, it seems when I transferred it into wordpress I missed a / which was preventing the form from being sent to us, sorry to anyone who has filled in the form only to experience that error.
In recent weeks we have had a number of requests for information about the combined easi-joist and attic room in the roof truss, so I have put together a brief information sheet, which shows one of our most recent easi-joist attic truss designs. The pdf can be downloaded from the ‘downloads‘ page and the ‘easi-joist roofing’ page as well as by clicking on the link below.

As promised I have taken a number of photo’s of the barn that has been constructed using easi-joist for the timber frame with trussed rafter roof. You can find the rest of the set and other projects we have been involved with over on our photostream on Flickr.
I have now uploaded a couple of photos from the easi-joist walls project to flickr you can find see them by visiting the E & H Baxendale photostream
So you have placed an enquiry with us for trussed rafters and/or easi-joist and we have given you a quotation, What Next. If you are happy with the quotation you have received and no changes are required to the specification then we need you to confirm in writing that the dimensions used to produce the design are accurate and that you wish to place an order, up until now this had to be done either in person, through the post or via a fax, but not anymore you can now place an order online.
By visiting www.eandhbaxendale.com/place-order.php you can confirm that the dimensions used to produce the design are accurate and place an order with us telling us when and where you would like your order delivering and how you will be paying for it. Another useful feature of this new form is that it allows you to confirm to us the dimensions for stairs in floor designs, the stairs and stairwell opening are critical in a floor design, if we don’t have accurate measurements we can’t guarantee that the joists will work.
We are also working to make it even easier for you to pay for your order, we now have debit card facilities installed any order paid for using a debit card will be treated just the same as an order paid for by cash and so should mean your order will be processed and delivered quicker than if you were to pay by cheque which can take up to five days to clear.
Today we received the updated Timber Engineering Connectors brochures from Cullen Building Products, the updated brochures have had all the product codes updated to the new standard format, old discontinued connectors have been removed and new connectors have been added. One of the biggest changes though is the inclusion of the new EC5 Euro-code specifications which come into force in March 2010, it does however mean that there is much more information for each connector. Over the coming weeks I will be working on updating our site with the new connectors as well as linking them to the relevant pdf data sheets over on the new Cullen website.
