TECHNICAL RESOURCE SHEET ­ .0E Microllam® lvl 2 beams and headers This Technical Resource Sheet is a supplement to the Trus Joist® Beams, Headers and Columns Specifier's Guide, TJ-9000. Please refer to TJ-9000 for additional design, construction, and product handling information for Microllam® LVL beams and headers. Trus Joist® 2.0E Microllam® LVL Weyerhaeuser is pleased to announce the availability of 2.0E Microllam® LVL. During the design process, many factors are considered when determining the size of a beam. Modulus of elasticity — commonly referred to as beam stiffness — plays a very important role when it comes to achieving maximum member span and an efficient, cost-effective design. Market Availability 2.0E grade Microllam® LVL will soon be available in all U.S. ­markets. Consult with your local Weyerhaeuser representative for timing. Available Sizes Widths: 1¾" Depths: 5½", 7¼", 9¼", 9½", 11¼", 11⅞", 14", 16", 18", 20", 22" and 24". Lengths: up to 60' Please call your local Weyerhaeuser representative for specific size and length availability in your area. For additional specification and design information on Microllam® LVL, refer to the Trus Joist® Beams, Headers, and Columns Specifier's Guide, TJ-9000.
