Just What Engineered Dimension Lumber Should Be

Accepted for Use Under All Building Codes

Structural-glued dimension lumber is accepted for use under all model building codes and is interchangeable with solid-sawn dimension lumber of the same size, grade and species, and is grade-marked accordingly.

Certified for Vertical and Horizontal Applications

Bright Wood’s dimension lumber is certified as CERT EXT JNTS by the Western Wood Products Association (WWPA), which means the joints are certified for both vertical and horizontal applications.

Heat Resistant Adhesive

Bright Wood uses a waterproof, exterior-type adhesive that meets the requirements of ASTM Product Standard D2559 and the WWPA’s Glued Products Procedures for Mill Certification and Quality Control, C/QC 101. Among those requirements, is a “heat resistant adhesive” represented by the “HRA” on Bright Wood’s WWPA certification stamp.

Bright Wood Stamp = Quality

Bright Wood’s dimension lumber is graded and tested throughout the manufacturing process to ensure it meets the same load and strength requirements as solid-sawn lumber. We use the Western Wood Products Association’s (WWPA) rules and specifications.

Examples of quality control procedures:

  • Tension break test and delamination boil test for joint quality (hourly on the shopfloor).
  • Durability cycle test to simulate how glue joints perform when moisture content causes wood to shrink or swell (in the lab).
  • Joint strength tests to verify how the joint will perform when a uniform tension is applied (in the lab).
