Advanced lumber based building solutions Specifically designed to make your home safer
Our range of Engineered Wood Products offers a variety of solutions for Building and Architectural Design. Engineered Wood (or EWP) combines the best physical properties of wood with technological advances and modern manufacturing processes. The result is a better building product that maximizes strength, resists warping, crowning and shrinking of regular dimensional lumber and timbers. It’s an evolution of traditional wood products that provides safer, stronger homes and buildings to meet the demands of modern life.
PinkWood Ltd. manufactures premium I-joists, under the trade name “PKJOIST”. They are primarily used as part of the floor systems in residential and commercial housing projects. PinkWood joists are manufactured to precise tolerances on high-speed equipment with integrated coating technology to yield the best possible physical properties and to maximize strength. Our I-joists will resist warping, crowning and shrinking.
PinkWood’s quality assurance program, monitored by the APA Engineered Wood Association, meets both the Canadian and US building code requirements (CCMC in Canada and ICC-ES in the US).
Pinkwood I-Joists can be produced either in the standard, bare form, or protected with intumescent Fire Rated paint. We refer to our Fire Rated joists as “SafeJoist” because they are so much less susceptible to fire.
Our joists are available in lengths up to 58′ and depths from 9 1/2″ through 16″ for our residential series. Our Commercial series joists are available from 18″ through 24″ (PKI 40 and 50 series only)
Standard, Uncoated I-Joists
Our standard I-joist has a pink protective coating only on the ends. The purpose of the end coating is to protect the joist against moisture penetration, providing a safer, stronger and longer lasting solution home building.
Fire Rated I-Joists
SafeJoist is available in both Class A and Class B Fire Rating classifications. The ‘Class A’ and ‘Class B’ SafeJoist has tan coloured in-tumescent paint on the surface web, and also has a pink protective coating on the ends.
The ‘Class A’ Fire Rated I-joists have a web with flame spread rating of 25 or less. These joists take approximately 5 times as long to burn through as bare, unprotected joists.
The ‘Class B’ Fire Rated I-joists have a web with a flame spread rating from 26 to 75. These joists take approximately 2.5 times as long to burn through as unprotected joists.
Engineered Wood LVL
You’ve probably been framing with traditional solid sawn lumber beams, headers, columns and studs for as long as you’ve been building. Now, through advances in technology and design, there is a better choice.
LVL (Laminated Veneer Lumber) structural lumber is perfectly suited for heavy loads and multi-span applications that require dimensional stability and uniformity. Our EWP program incorporates Murphy Forest Products and Roseburg LVL beams, headers, columns, studs, flanges, studs, truss chords, crane mats, manufactured home marriage beams and a wide range of concrete form panels and scaffold planks.
- Stronger, stiffer, more consistent
- Dimensionally stable
- APA quality assured
- FSC® certified LVL available
- Longer spans than conventional lumber (fewer supports required)
- Greater load carrying capacity than conventional lumber
- Wide width (up to 7’’)
- Product & Performance Warranty
Architectural EWP Beams
Widely used to dramatic effect in applications such as vaulted ceilings and in buildings with soaring open spaces. Architectural Wood Beams like Glulam and Parallam offer the improved structural strength and durability of EWP, along with a characteristic appearance that makes them an ideal choice for Architects and Consumers. In the home, these Beams can be used to create feature stair treads, mantles and other wood features.
- 3D modelling software ensures every beam is made with precision accuracy.
- Premium Douglas-fir, SPF, and Yellow Cedar fibre from certified sustainably managed forests.
- White glue, which helps to create aesthetically pleasing Glulam laminated timber beams without visible lamination lines.
- A variety of finishes are available for your glulam from classic smooth to rustic finish.
- Coatings applied in the factory to ensure optimal protection, durability and a beautiful wood appearance.
