Engineered lumber bolt bearing

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Question:

 

Are LVL and PSL lumber considered perpendicular to grain for bolt bearing values?  Seems like you would get a higher value for an engineered product in an epoxy (?) matrix as opposed to natural wood grain.

 

Is there an increased capacity available?

 

Mr. Showalter, are you out there?
