Engineered Wood Products (EWP)
Engineered Wood Products, (EWP)
Engineered Wood Products (EWP) are value-added products made from raw materials comprised of wood fiber, mechanical connections and adhesives to create consistent structural wood materials.
Raw materials may take the form of dimensional lumber, structural composite lumber, veneers, or strands that are reassembled into structural components in a manner that makes efficient use of the wood fiber resource.Engineered Wood Products are desirable for their shared characteristics of wood, but without the drawbacks of naturally occurring defects.
Furthermore, these products can be used in a variety of building applications including residential, commercial and industrial. EWP offers longer spans than conventional lumber with greater carrying capacity, minimal shrinkage, less deflection and less vibration.
