VERSA-LAM® LVL Beams & Headers

Click on the tabs ABOVE to find the specific information for your area.

VERSA-LAM® laminated veneer lumber (LVL) beams and headers eliminate twisting, shrinking and splitting, and deliver flatter, quieter floors and structures. Sized to match our BCI® and AJS® Joists and other elements of the SIMPLE FRAMING SYSTEM®, VERSA-LAM® offers quick assembly and is precision cut into more than 18 standard sizes. Because they have no camber and strength is consistent throughout, VERSA-LAM® LVL products have no top or bottom side. With better properties VERSA-LAM® LVL beams support heavier loads and longer spans than comparable glulam or dimension lumber products. Price competitive with laminated strand products, VERSA-LAM® offers all of the advantages of authentic laminated veneer lumber (LVL). These beams are manufactured in multiple widths and depths to match BCI® joists and are available nationally.
