The Wide Flange Solution


Lightweight, Easy to Specify & Install! Perma-Straight I’s are the ideal choice for high quality residential floor systems. They offer designers and builders consistent performance for the most demanding applications. Perma-Straight I’s offer longer lengths that give designers the freedom to design more open space into their projects, reducing the need for supporting walls, columns, and beams. Builders like them because they allow multiple span installations without the need to lap joists over bearing walls or support beams – saving time and money. Webs are easily cut onsite for mechanical pass through. There are

fewer pieces to handle, and PermaStraight I’s can be cut and fastened with traditional framing tools and fasteners. Plus, they weigh much less than comparable conventional lumber! Framers appreciate the extra-wide nailing flange; 2-1/2" or 3-1/2", compared to other manufacturers’ 1-1/2" width. Perma-Straight I’s won’t warp, twist or shrink, and offer more uniform dimensions than sawn lumber joists.

The Choice of Designers, Builders & Framers! Look for the APA/EWS trademark. It ensures superior I-joist quality & consistent performance...

APA Quality Assurance All Perma-Straight I’s are produced in accordance with theAmerican Ply-wood Association (APA) and Engineered Wood Association (EWS) Performance Rated I-joist Standard that was introduced in 1997. The APA/EWS standard provides a span rating system for I-joists used in residential construction. All APA Performance Rated Ijoists, or PRIs have common load/span PRI-40

tables (see chart below), uniform rules and guidelines for installation, and consistent engineering design values. Span ratings are stamped right on the product; making it easy to install properly, and for code officials to inspect. The stamp tells how far the joist will span at a given spacing for uniform load applications.
