Engineered Wood Products Provider iLevel Continues Trus Joist's Tradition

1960 marked a key turning point in building technology with Trus Joist Corporation’s invention of engineered wood products, a category of materials that has transformed wood construction.

In that year, the predecessor company to today’s iLevel by Weyerhaeuser began offering its patented open-web truss – a light, yet strong roof and floor component made of wood and steel. In the coming years, Trus Joist pioneered the wood I joist under the TJI® Joist brand name and developed Microllam® laminated veneer lumber, a composite lumber product that makes efficient use of raw materials for strong and stable beams. Today, these and other engineered wood products in the Trus Joist® family continue to support homes, apartments and light commercial buildings across North America.

iLevel continues the Trus Joist tradition of high-performance engineered wood products

“Trus Joist lived and breathed innovation,” says Nate Jorgensen, Vice President of Residential Sales for iLevel. “We constantly looked for ways to build stronger, faster and better, and make more efficient use of wood resources. iLevel is proud to continue that tradition of innovation in the new products, software and services we offer dealers and builders today.”

The iLevel Trus Joist brand remains a leader in engineered wood, with products including Trus Joist® TimberStrand® LSL, Trus Joist® Parallam® PSL and iLevel® Shear Brace. The company continues to make strategic investments in all of its technologies, which provides a competitive advantage. iLevel has one of the wood products industry’s largest research staffs, with research and development facilities in Boise, Idaho, and Federal Way, Washington.

Today’s engineered wood products provide a wide range of benefits, including high strength, availability in long lengths and resistance to warping, splitting and shrinking. As such, they help create strong, high-quality homes and buildings while making efficient use of a wider range of logs and wood fiber than was previously possible.
