ANTHONY FOREST PRODUCTS Introduces Power Preserve Glulam
El Dorado, Ark.—Anthony Forest Products Co., based here, recently released a two-page flyer to assist deck builders/designers in properly sizing a Power Preserved GlulamTM Beam for deck applications. The guide includes a size selection table based on the deck joist span and the actual span of the beam between the columns to make it simple to pick out a size.
By using Power Preserved Glulam Beams as the main structural support, column spacing will increase thereby reducing installed cost.
Anthony Forest is also making it easier to size beams and columns for any deck with this flyer. By using a 5-1/4 inch x 5-1/2 inch Power Preserved Column™ in all deck applications not exceeding 14-feet in height, there is no selection process at all. Going higher than 14-feet would require column sizing.
AFP is now offering 10-1/2 inch and 10-3/4 inch wide laminated beamsand columns at the El Dorado, Arkansas laminating plant.
The deck guide is available for distribution to retail customers and their contractor and deck builders. To compliment the Power Preserved Glulam Deck Guide, a comprehensive Power Preserved Glulam Beams and Columns brochure is available discussing in detail the products, preservatives, AWPA use categories, load tables, and applications for treated glulam and columns.
AFP is now offering 10-1/2 inch and 10-¾ inch wide laminated beams and columns at the El Dorado, Arkansas laminating plant. The beams to be offered are the 2400Fb- 1.8E- 300Fv architectural, industrial, and framing appearance classifications. The columns will be the firm’s standard combination #50 which is all the #1 Dense SYP. All load tables are available in print from our website.
