Trus Joist LSL Rimboard

For years, little attention was paid to the importance of lateral forces. However, recent earthquake and hurricane disasters have demonstrated the importance of proper lateral load transfer. Engineering analysis confirms that rim board is essential in a home’s ability to resist the lateral loads generated by high winds and earthquakes.

Trus Joist® rim board products offer vertical load support and provide the nailing surface necessary to adequately transfer wind and seismic loads. Manufactured by Weyerhaeuser according to strict quality assurance requirements, they provide strength, stiffness, and durability. We’re so confident about the performance of all our rim board that it comes with a limited lifetime product warranty. When used with TJI® joists, it offers the ultimate high performance floor.
