LP® SolidStart® I-Joists are known for their value when it comes to size, strength, and reliability. Manufactured with a wide flange for increased stability and a larger nailing area, LP I-Joists offer exceptional performance and dependability.
LP® SolidStart® I-Joists are straighter and more uniform in strength, stiffness and size than traditional lumber, providing a strong, sturdy floor. Pound-for-pound, our I-Joists have a greater load bearing capacity than traditional lumber and can span farther. And because we offer longer lengths, ceilings and floors can be designed with fewer pieces, saving time on installation. Other advantages over lumber include lower moisture content, which makes our I-Joists less likely to split, shrink, twist, warp or bow, helping reduce callbacks.
The LP® SolidStart® I-Joists manufacturing process combines laminated veneer lumber (LVL) or finger-jointed sawn wood flanges with a web of oriented strand board (OSB) to produce an I-shaped structural member. The flanges resist bending stresses and deflection, while the web resists sheer. That makes our I-Joists ideal for long spans in floors, ceilings and roof framing.
LP® SolidStart® I-Joists & The Environment
LP SolidStart I-Joists are made from wood a renewable, natural resource.
Our wood procurement process targets small, fast growing trees that can be replenished more quickly than older, larger trees.
LP uses SFI® certified forest management and fiber sourcing systems to help ensure that our wood comes from well-managed forests. LP SolidStart
I-Joists are certified to the SFI chain-of-custody standard.
The entire log is used in our manufacturing process. All wood waste is repurposed or used to help fuel our mills.
We only use low-emitting, safe resins in the manufacture of LP SolidStart I-Joists and do not add any urea formaldehyde.
LP SolidStart I-Joists are available in long lengths. This reduces the number of pieces needed and results in more efficient utilization of resources.
LP SolidStart I-Joists may help builders qualify for certification points in a number of leading green building programs.
