LEED® Credits/Certification Information for Engineered Wood Products

Thursday, October 2, 2008

FSC® certified RigidLam® LVL is available from Roseburg Forest Products. RigidLam LVL FSC certified products are manufactured under the Mixed Credit system. LEED grants 100 percent credit for Mixed Credit products. FSC certified RigidLam LVL qualifies for the LEED - Materials and Resources MR Credit 7.0: Certified Wood.

All grades of RigidLam® LVL (laminated veneer lumber) and all series of RFPI®-Joists (inclusive of LVL flanged I-joists and solid sawn lumber flanged I-joists) manufactured by Roseburg Forest Products contain no added urea-formaldehyde resins; therefore, it is Roseburg’s opinion that RigidLam LVL and RFPI-Joists should qualify for the LEED - Indoor Environmental Quality EQ Credit 4.4: Low-Emitting Materials. However, the project specifier/end user is responsible to verify with LEED whether or not these materials will qualify for this credit.

Depending on the location of a project, RigidLam LVL and RFPI-Joists may qualify for the LEED - Materials and Resources MR Credit 5.1 or 5.2: Regional Materials.

More information can be found in the Roseburg publication “Green Products Guide” which can be ordered or downloaded from the Roseburg Online Library or Order Products and Samples links above.
