GP Lam LvL handling & installation


GP Lam LVL shall not be stored in direct contact with the ground
and must be protected from weather. Provide air circulation under
covering and around stacks of materials.
Bundles must be stored level and must not be opened until time
of installation.
St ack and handle GP Lam LVL flatwise.
Handlers and installers should use appropriate personal protective
equipment such as gloves and goggles. An MSDS is available at
www.buildgp.com.
Engineered lumber must not be installed in direct contact with
concrete or masonry construction or shall be protected per code
and shall be used in covered, dry use conditions only (moisture
content is less than 16%).
Minimum bearing length for GP Lam LVL beams and headers: end
bearing 1129, intermediate bearing 39. Size for applied loads.
GP Lam LVL beams and headers must be restrained against
rotation at ends and supports and the top (or compression edge)
must be laterally supported by perpendicular framing or bracing at
249 on-center or closer.
1349 GP Lam LVL beams deeper than 149 must only be used in
multiple-piece members.
Nails installed in the narrow face of GP Lam LVL shall not be spaced
closer than 49 (10d common nails) or 39 (8d common nails).
Multiple piece GP Lam LVL may not be stagger-spliced as is sometimes
done with dimension lumber. If the required length of a multiplespan beam exceeds the available length of the LVL, the LVL beams
must be installed so as to butt together over a common bearing.

GP Lam LVL is manufactured without camber or specific vertical


orientation. It may be installed with the identifying stamps on the
side faces reading right side up or upside down.
Strength and stiffness properties of GP Lam LVL exceed those of
typical dimension lumber. It may be possible to substitute GP Lam
LVL for dimension lumber roof members in code-prescribed
conventional light-frame construction, but design of conventional
construction is beyond the scope of this product guide and of
Georgia-Pacific Engineered Lumber Technical Services.
When nail type is not specified in this guide, use common, box
or sinker.
To help safeguard the structural integrity of connections with
preservative or fire-retardant treated wood, use connectors and
hardware as required by code and type of treatment.
As a minimum requirement, hot-dipped galvanized coated fasteners
should conform to ASTM Standard A 153 and hot-dipped galvanized
coated connectors should conform to ASTM Standard A 653
(Class G-185). In demanding applications, or in highly corrosive
environments, stainless steel fasteners and connectors should be
utilized and may, in fact, be required by building codes.
Most commonly available electroplated galvanized fasteners do
not have a sufficient coating of zinc and are not recommended.
Aluminum should not be used in direct contact with preservative
treated wood. Never mix galvanized steel with stainless steel in
the same connection.

2.0E GP Lam LvL floor beams


This table shows the size (e.g.: 211149 = 2 plies of 1349x11149) of beams needed to support
loads of one floor only, i.e., a second story floor or one story floor over a basement.
(See drawing at right.)
When floor joists span continuously from wall to wall (not cut at beam) this table
Co
requires that B be not less than 45%, or greater than 55% of A.
Spaclumn
ing
Example: If A = 32*, B must be between 14.4* (32x.45) and 17.6* (32x.55)

NOTES:
1 . Table is based on continuous floor joist span and simple or continuous beam span
conditions . If floor joists are not continuous above the beam, take the sum of the
joist spans then multiply by 0 .8 . This is the total floor joist span to consider .
2 . Required end bearing length (based on 565 psi) is 3 .0 9 unless the subscript + is
shown . In that case, 4 .59 is required .
3 . At intermediate supports of continuous spans, use the following guidelines or refer
to page 39 .

bearing surface the LVL provides to other framing elements .
6 . A single 3129 thick ply can be substituted for any two 1349 thick plies .
7 . For multiple ply fasteners, see pages 47-48 .

This table shows the size (e.g.: 211149 = 2 plies of 1349 x 11149) of headers
needed to support various roof truss spans with 2* soffit. If the soffit is greater
than 2*, additional design is necessary. For non-conforming situations, use FASTBeam
analysis and selection software or contact Georgia-Pacific.

NOTES:
1 . 28-09 maximum roof overhang assumed .
2 . Provide posts or wall at both ends to support reactions . Provide 59 minimum bearing
in the direction of the hip or valley at each end based on Douglas Fir-Larch or Southern
Pine post or plate material . (For example, a 2x4 wall provides 59 minimum bearing for a
hip or valley rafter framing at a 45 degree angle to the wall .)
3 . The building designer must consider thrust resistant connections at bearing locations .
4 . For non-equal roof slopes, use the longest horizontal roof rafter span (L) and the
greatest roof slope .
5 . Table is based on triangular loading applied to the hip or valley member . Live load is
calculated as applied vertically to the horizontal projection of the rafter and dead load
is calculated along the rafter length .

using allowable uniform floor and roof Load tables


1. Tables are based on uniform loads, the more restrictive of simple
or continuous spans (measured center-to-center), and dry-use
conditions (moisture content less than 16%) . Loads shown can be
applied to the beam in addition to its own weight. For other loads
or span configurations, use FASTBeam analysis and selection software or contact your Georgia-Pacific representative.
2. Beam thickness is the net thickness of the beam. A single 3129 thick
ply can be substituted for any two 1349 thick plies. See pages 47-48
for multiple-ply member connection details.
3. To size a beam it is necessary to check both live load and total
load. Selected beam must work in both rows. When no live load
is shown, total load will control, unless floor live load deflections
other than L/360 are checked per note 4.
4. For floor live load deflection limits of L/480 or L/600, multiply the
value in the floor LL row (or TL when LL is not shown) by
0.75 or 0.60 respectively.
5. To size a member for a span not shown, use capacities for the
next larger span shown (example: for 78 span, use values shown
for 88 span).
6. Verify deflection limits with local building code requirements.
EXAMPLE:
Select a 2.0E GP Lam LVL beam to carry 520 PLF live load + 200
PLF dead load. Beam supports both floor and roof, and spans 108.

PaGe

When a beam carries floor and roof, use tables for floor loads; these
tables are based on more stringent criteria than those used for roof
loads. Use the table titled Floor 100%, on pages 41-42. Adding
520 PLF and 200 PLF gives a total load of 720 PLF. Find 108 in the
left-most column. To the right are three rows showing Live Load
L/360, Total Load and Minimum End and Minimum Interior Bearing
requirements in inches. In the row marked Total Load, move to the
right to locate a total load of at least 720 PLF. 1349 x 11789 GP Lam
LVL Beam can carry 745 PLF total load. Check live load capacity.
1349 x 11789 can carry 629 PLF live load, so live load capacity is also

7. Bearing across full width of beam is assumed.


8. Assumes 565 psi bearing stress limited by Douglas Fir, Southern
Yellow Pine or other dense supporting material. For SPF or other
less dense materials, either double the bearing length shown or
refer to Bearing Length Requirements on page 39.
9. Bearing length may be adjusted if a beam is not fully loaded. For
example, if 4.29 of bearing is required for a beam with maximum
total load capacity of 1000 PLF yet the total design load is only
700 PLF the bearing length may be adjusted as follows:
700/1000 x 4.2 = 2.949 minimum (use 2 cripples for 39). In no
case may end bearing length be less than 1129 or intermediate
bearing length less than 39.
10. Provide lateral support at bearing points, and continuous lateral
support along the top (or compression edge) of beam.
11. 1349 thick beams with depth greater than 149 must only be used
in multiple-ply members .
12. For 3-ply 1 34 9 (5 14 9) or 4-ply 1 34 9 (79) GP Lam LVL, use 1349
table and multiply by 3 or 4 respectively.
13. Roof surface must slope a minimum of 14 /12 or as required for
drainage.

adequate. Note required end bearing length is 3.89 and 9.59 for
interior bearing of multiple spans. (See Note 9 above)
If less bearing length or a depth less than 11789 is desired, check
the capacity of 3129 LVL beams. In the row marked Total Load,
move farther to the right to locate a total load of at least 720 PLF.
A 3129 wide x 9149 deep member can carry 931 PLF total load.
Check that live load capacity is at least 520 PLF. 3129 x 9149 beams
can carry 627 PLF, which is sufficient. Use 3129 x 9149 deep.
Required end bearing is 2.49 and 5.99 is required for interior
bearing of multiple spans.

Spacings closer than those above may be acceptable, but require special
consideration . Contact your technical representative .

6 . 79 wide beams should only be side-loaded when loads are applied to both sides, when the
lesser side load plf is at least 25% of the opposite side, or when the beam is otherwise
restrained to minimize rotation .
7 . For beam depths <7149, the maximum beam thickness must not exceed the beam depth and
all fasteners must be staggered up to one-half the required o .c . spacing . For depths 7149, the
maximum beam thickness is 79 .

3 . Three general rules for staggering or offsetting for a certain fastener schedule:
(1) if staggering or offsetting is not referenced, then none is required;
(2) if staggering is referenced, then fasteners installed in adjacent rows on the front
side are to be staggered up to one-half the o .c . spacing, but maintaining the fastener
clearances above; and
(3) if ES is referenced, then the fastener schedule must be repeated on each side,
with the fasteners on the back side offset up to one-half the o .c . spacing of the
front side (whether or not it is staggered) .

top-Loaded
For required multiple-ply member fastening, only conditions where the
loading is applied evenly across the top of all plies shall be considered
top-loaded. All other conditions must be fastened using the side-loaded

NOTES:
1 . Capacity is for the stated duration of load100% floor loading . Hanger capacity
depends on the hanger selected, quantity and size of fasteners used, and the size
and type of support to which it is fastened . Hanger capacities shown are based
on attachment to LVL header material using the hanger manufacturers
recommended fastening. Minimum header thickness is 312(. Some hanger/
header/fastener combinations may not meet maximum beam capacities and a
qualified designer should be consulted . Before selecting hangers, please refer to the
appropriate reference/design guide from the hanger manufacturer for expanded
design information . Many other designs are available for specialized applications .
2 . Model numbers shown are for United Steel Products Company, Inc . and Simpson
Strong-Tie Company, Inc . Contact your local building material supplier for
connector availablility .
3 . Special consideration is required with top mount hangers on nailers . Refer to
the hanger manufacturers catalog for reduced capacity .
