APA Rim Board
APA Performance Rated Rim Board is a specially designed component, designed to work in concert with the foundation and floor framing members to deliver a complete engineered wood solution. With high strength, dimensional stability, and structural reliability, Rim Boards perfectly match the depth of wood I-joists and offer highly predictable performance and consistent quality. APA Performance Rated Rim Board may be manufactured with plywood, oriented strand board (OSB), glued laminated timber (glulam), or laminated veneer lumber (LVL) and is available in lengths up to 24 feet, depending on the product used.
APA Performance Rated Rim Board is used in floor systems as the structural component that fills the space between the sill plate and bottom plate of a wall or, in second floor construction, between the top plate and bottom plate of two wall sections.
