LP Building Products Launches New LP® SolidStart® LPI 530

11:00 EDT Friday, October 18, 2013

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Business Wire) -- LP Building Products has launched the new LP® SolidStart® LPI 530 I-Joist in West Coast markets. Equipped with an LP SolidStart LVL flange, the new I-Joist provides the load bearing capacity, consistency and performance builders have come to expect from LP Engineered Wood Products.

“By adding the LPI 530, we've provided an LVL-flanged I-Joist solution for the West Coast residential market,” said Kim Rogers, EWP product manager for LP Building Products. “Because of its light weight and long lengths, the LPI 530 installs quickly, helping save time and money as well as allowing for more open floor plans. The new LVL flange also has Douglas-fir nailing equivalency for attaching the floor sheathing.”

LP SolidStart I-Joists are less likely than solid sawn lumber to split, shrink, twist, warp or bow, helping reduce floor squeaks. The I-Joists allow for HVAC and plumbing to be run through the web as needed. The LPI 530 has a 1-5/16˝ x 2-1/16˝ (53mm) wide flange and is available in depths from 9-1/2˝ up to 16˝.

Manufactured at the LP Building Products engineered wood products mill in Red Bluff, Calif., the new LP SolidStart LPI 530 will be available across the West Coast. The product is backed by a Lifetime Limited Warranty. LP SolidStart Engineered Wood Products use logs from SFI® certified forest management and fiber sourcing systems to ensure that the wood comes from well-managed forests.

Cal. Prop. 65 Warning: Use of this product may result in exposure to wood dust, which is known to California to cause cancer.
