Boise Cascade is relaunching its premium Versa-Lam LVL (laminated veneer lumber) as 2.1E Versa-Lam LVL with increased modulus of elasticity (MOE) grades. 2.1E Versa-Lam reflects ‘True E’ deflection calculations, a common approach to assigning MOE grades. The shift simplifies the specification process of wood structures. With 2.1E Versa-Lam LVL, specifiers can avoid confusion when evaluating EWP products and reduce the risk of substituting EWP beams with deficient properties on building projects. 2.1E Versa-Lam LVL will begin shipping in early summer 2019.
