TimberStrand® LSL Studs

Weyerhaeuser Laminated Strand Lumber (LSL) studs are one of most frequent orders right now, and seem to be a hot commodity with our clients in the industry. Laminated Strand Lumber (LSL) is great for framing the entire house in contemporary projects, or even just for use in framing doorways, paneling walls, pocket doors, feature walls and high ceilings. The timbers are engineered so shrinkage is minimal compared to traditional SPF.

At Toolbx, we do our best to place an emphasis on protecting the environment by opting for eco-friendly products wherever possible, aside from their many uses and benefits, the fact that LSL studs are a sustainable product is a major added bonus. Here are a few awesome projects we’ve come across which each use LSL studs in unique and different ways.

Engineered for consistent performance, TimberStrand® Laminated Strand Lumber (LSL) starts straight and stays straight. As a result, it’s one of the most innovative and versatile building products available — a suitable solution for a diverse range of applications such as tall walls, beams, rim board, sill plates and so much more. TimberStrand LSL is a green building solution as well. The manufacturing process combines technology and innovation to produce high-performing engineered lumber using small-diameter trees that are not strong or straight enough on their own to be of structural value as conventional sawn lumber products.
