Engineered to Perform

  • Consistent
    Strength

    Versa-Lam beams are strong throughout, engineered to support heavier loads, and provide longer spans than stock glulams (24F-V4) or dimensional lumber products.

  • High
    Quality

    Versa-Lam LVL beams and headers won’t twist, shrink, or split, resulting in flatter, quieter floors and strong structures saving time while protecting reputations.

  • Easy
    Installation

    Precision cut into more than 18 standard sizes to match BCI and AJS Joists, with extra-wide widths that eliminate the need for bolting and nailing.
