Engineered-Wood Design and Construction Guide
from C.H.I.P.S.

APA Engineered Wood Handbook
edited by Thomas G. Williamson

This unique handbook shows you what you can do with glued engineered wood composites in both residential and nonresidential building construction applications - products that not only perform better than traditional solid wood products, but also reduce the pressure on available wood fiber resources.

The APA Engineered Wood Handbook provides standards and guidelines for getting the most from some of the most exciting wood based materials available in construction today.

Let this book help you:

  • Cut building costs and improve building performance by using glued wood composites featuring enhanced performance characteristics
  • Gain better understanding and discover new applications for plywood, oriented strand board (OSB), prefabricated wood I-joists, laminated veneer lumber (LVL), glue laminated timber (glulam), and other related glued wood products
  • Get the latest design recommendations for shear walls and diaphragms
  • Find up-to-date design information on mechanical connections
  • Obtain industry recommendations for fire and acoustic design solutions and treatments and finishes for engineered wood composites
  • Learm aobut new technologies on the horizon
