Western BCI® Joists

Western BCI® Joists

BCI® Joists are specially constructed I-joists with flanges made from VERSA-LAM® laminated veneer lumber and a revolutionary flange profile which provides outstanding strength and durability.
Our current series feature wider flanges which make them even easier to work with on the jobsite because of their wide nailing surface. These joists are consistent from piece to piece, are lighter in weight and stronger than conventional lumber, easier to handle, and faster to install. BCI® Joists help keep floors flat and homes square, make finish work go faster with fewer problems, and are readily available.
