1 AIA Course BLS100 1 LU + 1 HSW

2 Weyerhaeuser is a Registered Provider with The American Institute of Architects Continuing Education Systems (AIA/CES). Credit(s) earned on completion of this program will be reported to AIA/CES for AIA members. Certificates of Completion for both AIA members and non-AIA members are available upon request. This program is registered with AIA/CES for continuing professional education. As such, it does not include content that may be deemed or construed to be an approval or endorsement by the AIA of any material of construction or any method or manner of handling, using, distributing, or dealing in any material or product. Questions related to specific materials, methods, and services will be addressed at the conclusion of this presentation. Thank you!

3  Recognize the advantages of specifying engineered lumber.  Identify common engineered lumber types, including:  product composition  typical sizes  design properties  Recognize the common applications for engineered lumber products.  Know what to watch out for: special requirements that apply to Engineered Lumber Products.

4  More efficient use of wood fiber, availability, & building trends  Predictable design values  Dimensionally stable  Allows for larger holes to accommodate mechanicals within joist cavities

5 Parallel Strand Lumber Laminated Strand Lumber Laminated Veneer Lumber Wooden I-Joists

18  CONSISTENT /UNIFORM - No shimming on headers or studs; eliminates culls  TALL WALLS - Dimensional stability results in solid, straight walls - Eliminates the “hinge” point in tall walls  S TRAIGHT/TRUE

19  STRENGTH (SHORT SPANS) - Comparable to conventional lumber for most residential header/beam spans - No shimming  ONE-PIECE HEADERS - Convenient widths  HOLES - Large hole capacity  CONSISTENT /UNIFORM

20  LONG SECTIONS - Longer pieces for faster installation reducing labor and materials costs  STRENGTH - Higher diaphragm shear values than 11⁄8" OSB; Stronger than comparably sized conventional lumber  NAILING - Provides a wider nailing surface for subfloor panels; Superior fastener retention minimizes squeaks

21  LSL - Strong  Most residential loads and spans  Thicknesses good for one-piece headers  Large hole capability  Superior fastener retention minimizes squeaks  Warp resistance good for straight walls / tall walls  Size for size, stronger than dimensional lumber  Reduces aesthetic blemishes (drywall cracks, etc.)  LVL - Stronger  Deeper depths  Versatile, multi-ply applications  Available with water sealant  PSL - Strongest  Large beams, heavy loads  Exposed beams, treated applications
