Lumber Tech Columns, Inc. is dedicated to making sure your building is structurally sound with their new laminated columns. Each Lumber Tech Column is an engineered product made with new state of the art technology. Whether you are replacing old or using in new construction, it is the strongest and most durable replacement for a solid sawn post. Each column is manufactured straight and planed on one edge to ensure a consistently flat surface for finishing the interior of a building.
The column is composed of #1SYP on the upper end, and a minimum of 6' of #1SYP .6 KDAT, therefore making each base virtually treated all the way through. Adhesive is used between each ply to eliminate interior slippage. Along with ringshank hot dipped galvanized nails placed strategically, this system results in a more rigid column. The butt joint is finger-jointed to ensure stability of the column. This will allow the columns to bear heavier, vertical loads.
*The upper 24" of every column includes no fasteners or adhesives. The center ply has a ' section in a saddle that has one screw to stop any warpage at the top of the column. This allows workers on the job-site a quicker and easier way for making grade and setting trusses.
*Each ply is treated before lamination. Therefore, each column is virtually treated all the way through, unlike solid sawn poles.
*Columns are planed on one edge to provide a clean, flat interior surface, for that finished look.
