Arling Lumber is proud to distribute Engineered Wood Products from Boise Cascade – available in truckloads, units, or cut-to-length packages.

BCI® Joists are made with Versa-Lam® LVL Flanges and enhanced OSB webs. BCI Joists span further than conventional lumber counterparts while using less wood. When high strength, long spans and superior quality are desired, BCI Joists are the joists of choice. AJS™ I-joists have solid-sawn spruce flanges for a wide flanged joist.
