Rosboro Co. has launched a new fire-retardant-treated (FRT) glulam product designed for Type III construction.
Rosboro X-Rim FRT is UL Classified, carries APA certified design values, and is backed with factory warranties from Rosboro and Hoover Treated Wood Products. Building codes require FRT wood to be used in certain wall assemblies, but until now the only available FRT materials were framing lumber and plywood.
As reportedly the only code accepted EWP framing solution for FRT wall assemblies, the product removes the need for costly detailing and eliminates the risk of unapproved treatments being red-tagged.
X-Rim FRT is available in 3-1/2” and 5-1/2” widths to match wall framing, in depths compatible with all floor framing systems.
