Product Overview

  • Supports heavier loads than comparably sized dimension lumber
  • Construction grade
  • Fits into 2 in. x 4 in. wall framing
These days, the trend is toward large open rooms in homes, with a reduced number of columns. Therefore, the remaining columns must bear greater loads and traditional wood is often inadequate. An attractive alternative to steel columns is to use Versa-Lam engineered wood columns. Boise Cascade VERSA-LAM LVL columns offer higher design values than solid wood columns. Versa-Lam is made at an ideal 10% moisture content. With Boise Cascade VERSA-LAM LVL, you'll find none of the deep checks, cracks or twists that can plague solid wood columns.
  • Stronger, straighter and stiffer then dimensional posts
  • Fits into 2 in. x 4 in. wall framing
  • Can carry load up to 7,200 lbs.
  • Replaces gang nailing 2-piece of 2 in. x 4 in.
  • Only 8 ft. lengths are available on homedepot.com
  • Construction grade
  • Modulus of elasticity: 1.8E
  • Fiber bending: 2750

I am using the BC Calculator. I want to use this as a header and the calculator says it will work. Material is a 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" Versa Lam 1.4 1800 DF. Can I use this for the header span, not as a column?
Asked by: John
If you are in a pinch and if you ran the grain vertically I don't see why not... but bc has a specific product for spans. I would just just use the correct product if you have time to source.
