LAMCO LFL® vs Framing Lumber:

  • DrierLAMCO LFL® is 14% or less vs lumber @ 19% or less.

  • Longer spansLAMCO LFL® out spans even select grades. Increases the joist spacing , uses less wood and increases the space available for insulation.

  • StraighterLAMCO LFL® is made in a factory environment and is cut and milled into guaranteed straight pieces.

  • StrongerLAMCO LFL® 1.6E is our “entry level” product and is stronger than framing lumber. Replace any LVL or composite products with our higher strength grades.

  • Holes - LAMCO LFL® products can be drilled or have circular holes cut up to 1/3 the depth of joist (hole size dependant on hole location and load on member).

 

LAMCO LFL® vs I-Joist & Floor Truss

  • PerformanceLAMCO LFL® solid wood technology reduces floor vibration (vs I-Joist) for better performance and comfort.

  • Work with Uniform or Off-Set Point LoadingLAMCO LFL® solid wood technology carries higher uniform loads than comparable I-Joists and does not normally require additional reinforcement to support “off-set point loads” from above or ”load bearing cantilevers“ like floor trusses and I-Joists.

  • Best for Cantilevers - do not require additional blocking.

  • More 'Job Site Friendly' than floor trusses if you need to cut on site, etc...

  • FIRE CODE Requirements - Unlike I-Joists and Floor Trusses, LAMCO LFL® Solid engineered wood joists do not require sheetrock ceilings in basements as a fire guard or sprinkler systems. Imagine the savings on the total job!
