Size-matched to AllJoist products and other Boise Cascade products, Versa-Lam offers quick assembly and is precision cut in more than 18 standard sizes. Each beam edge is eased, or smoothed, to avoid splinters. Because of its uniformly high strength, Versa-Lam supports heavier loads than comparably sized dimension lumber. Price-competitive with laminated strand products, it also offers the advantages of an authentic laminated veneer lumber.

Construction time is reduced. No special backing is required for siding or deck attachment. Manufactured to achieve maximum nailing values. Boise Rimboard can handle seismic and high wind loads.
Boise Cascade Architectural Glulam Beams
BOISE GLULAMs are sometimes forgotten in what has become an increasingly crowded field of newer products. Laminated timbers are often the most cost-effective and easy-to install alternative for beam applications to residential, commercial and light industrial construction. It is usually easy to determine whether to specify a balanced or unbalanced layup and whether to choose Industrial or Architectural appearance grade beams. The benefit to BOISE GLULAM beams is that they can be manufactured either with or without camber. Most stock beams are available with either a small amount of camber (5000’ radius) or no camber, depending on market demands. BOISE GLULAM beams are manufactured primarily from Douglas Fir-Larch and other softwood species and carry the APA trademark.
