Traditional sawn lumber rim board has been around for as long as you’ve been building. Now through advances in technology and design, there is a better choice—Pacific Woodtech Laminated Veneer Lumber (PWLVL) rim board. Simply a better alternative than traditional sawn lumber pieces.
Work with a stronger, stiffer, more consistent, and more predictable building material. Compared with similar sized sections, PWLVL rim board can support heavier loads and allows greater spans than conventional lumber.
Each piece of PWLVL is pressure sprayed with a UV inhibitor and sealed with emulsified wax.
Reference design values for PWLVL rim board.
PWLVL must be used in dry service conditions, where the moisture content in service is less than 16%.
