Truss, Panel & Tall Wall image

Truss, Panel & Tall Wall

THICKNESS: LAMCO LFL® match well with 1 1/2" conventional lumber.

LENGTH: For long truss chords & large Tall Walls, our maximum 32' length products are integrated seamlessly into any factory environment, minimizing cutting & joints. For sizeable orders, LAMCO can precision trim your order & LAMCO LFL® can be installed directly without any cutting needed, saving on labor and time.

DENSITY: The Black Spruce in LAMCO LFL® is ideal for truss & wall panel production. Your truss chords & wall studs are installed without any special details or additional air or hydraulic pressure requirements, even with our LAMCO LFL® 2.1E.

STRENGTH: LAMCO LFL® comes in 4 grades with 1.6E & 1.7E replacing mostly MSR & LSL and 1.9E & 2.1E replacing mostly LVL.

STABILITY: LAMCO LFL® has been dried longer than standard truss & stud grades. Our unique composition prevents issues like "cupping", "swelling" or no. 1&2 MSR/MEL "cracking or checking".

DEPTH MATCH: Use LAMCO LFL® bottom chord in exact conventional lumber or I-Joist depths in your attic trusses to eliminate any stacking or on-site adjustments. Custom depths up to 16" are available for sizeable orders too.

ELITMINATE THE FLOOR TRUSS: You can get rid of that expensive 16" deep floor truss in the bottom chord of your bonus room trusses. With lengths up to 32', you can run one continuous piece. Keep 20' and 24' lengths in-stock & take them right to the truss jig when needed!

BEST CHOICE FOR TALL WALLS: You can save by replacing LSL in site built tall walls or in wall panel manufacturing. Reduce wood volume by spacing LAMCO LFL® TALL STUDS up to 24" & save up to 60% in panel assembly time.

SOFTWARE: Available in the best design software: MITEK, ITW ALPINE, iStruct, RISA and RISA 3D, Woodworks and BlueLinx's Doma StudioTM and Simpson Strong-Tie.

Plus, its better than other EWP Visual Appearencegives your clients the confidence they seek in a strong structural finished truss.
Beam & Header image

Beam & Header

  • STRONGER: LAMCO LFL® makes a great beam or header, often eliminating a ply.

  • SINGLE MEMBER: Because of its stability, LAMCO LFL® can be used as a single member up to 16".

  • THINNER: Our 1-7/16" width means you use less material than 1-3/4" LVL or LSL to do the same job saving you money.

  • ADVANCED FRAMING: Using LAMCO LFL® as a structural rimboard in multi-stage buildings, this Advanced Framing Technique allows builders to eliminate window headers completely in under stories and increase energy efficiency creating an ultimate wall opening detail.

    MULTIPLE PLY'S: LAMCO LFL® can be easily bolted or screwed from 3-ply to 5 ply without additional engineering required. ( Reference TER 1211-01 and TER 1401-01, page 6, chapter 5.4.8.5).

    LAMCO LFL® HEADER: Easy Installation, Single-ply is often enough.

Finger Jointed Studs SPS-3

BEST FINGER-JOINTED STUD ON THE MARKET

Strict raw materials selection
  • Lamco carefully sorts & selects raw material for each production (LAMCO LFL®,LAMFLOOR® & SPS-3 STUD)
Recycling from one production into another
  • After each production, raw materials that did not meet the quality requirements are cut to shorter lengths, defects are removed, the wood is reclassified (NLGA standards) and those short pieces are finger jointed into Lamco studs. In the end, any unused fiber is recycled into wood pellets.

Higher strength raw material: contains high volume of MSR lumber.

More joints per piece: always 3 or more.

Finger joints: 7/8" structural male/ female joints.

Available in 2x3, 2x4 & 2x6 Sizes: Depths: 2-7/16", 3-7/16" ,5-7/16", Thickness 1-7/16", Lengths up to 12'.

Glue: HEXION HRA series AG 5600(Heat Resistant Adhesive). Meets ASTM D-2559 & CSA O112.7-M1977 standards. Accepted in LEED projects.

Less wane, big knots, holes & fiber deviation than other studs on the market. No rot.
