The Next-Generation Glulam
Rosboro's X-Beam combines the inherent strength and design flexibility of glued laminated timber with a whole new level of convenience and cost efficiency. Offered in conventional and I-Joist compatible depths, this full framing-width glulam beam (matching standard framing widths of 3-1/2" and 5-1/2") has gained a reputation as the most cost effective engineered wood product (EWP) in the industry.
Do the Math: 25% to 35% less expensive than LVL – Up to 20% less expensive than LSL
In this age of value engineering, X-Beam satisfies a higher level of demand. Not only does X-Beam cost less than competing EWP, it also offers increased wood volume with more load-carrying capacity (up to 12% for 3-1/2" and 7% for 5-1/2") and greater surface area for continuous and interior bearing. This makes X-beam a superior choice for short beams and headers.
Responding to the needs of the marketplace, Rosboro has also introduced 9-1/4" and 11-1/4" X-Beams, which match the cost-cutting 2 x 10 and 2 x 12 joists that are increasingly popular for multi-family and single-family construction.
Cut Costs, Not Quality
X-beam saves money on paper during the specification process, but it also saves time and money in the field. Because it matches standard framing widths, X-Beam eliminates the need for shimming on the jobsite, which translates to faster work without compromising one iota of quality. Architectural in appearance, X-Beam also looks the part of a high quality EWP.
