    TABLE OF CONTENTS

    THE iLEVEL TRUS JOIST HEAVY COMMERCIAL MICROLLAM LVL SCAFFOLD PLANK ADVANTAGEScaffolding takes a beating. Planks sit on frames and are subjected

    to the affronts of rain, snow, heat, cold, heavy loads, and wear from

    numerous erection and dismantle cycles. Scaffold companies need

    planks they can rely onplanks that have minimal twist and bow

    after that type of exposure. iLevel Trus Joist Heavy Commercial has

    the solution: scaffold planks made of Microllam laminated veneer

    lumber (LVL). Microllam LVL scaffold planks are safe and reliable,

    and have predictable performance.

    We at iLevel are committed to working safely and want to remind you to do the same. We encourage you to follow the recommendations of OSHA (www.osha.gov) in the U.S. or provincial regulations (www.canoshweb.org/en/) in Canada regarding:

    Personal protective equipment (PPE) for hands, feet, head, and eyes

    Fall protection

    Use of pneumatic nailers and other hand tools

    Forklift safety

    Please adhere to all applicable iLevel product installation details.

    BUILD SAFELYPlease be sure you read, understand, and follow

    all OSHA fall protection guidelines.

    DESIGN PROPERTIES

    General Notes Design properties are determined in accordance with ANSI A10.8-2001, Appendix C.

    These properties apply only to Microllam laminated veneer lumber (LVL) scaffold planks used in conditions where the moisture content of the plank is not expected to exceed 19%. These values apply only to planks used in the flat orientation.

    Fb, E, and Fv shall be adjusted by a factor of 0.80 when used in conditions where the moisture content of the plank is expected to exceed 19%.

    Fastener values (nails, bolts, screws) shall be as provided for sawn Douglas fir per 2001 National Design Specification for Wood Construction (NDS) or per Canadian Standards Associations (CSA) O86-01, Engineering Design in Wood.

    No increases in allowable unit stresses are included for load-sharing systems.

    Values are for new or like-new product.

    June 9, 1975OSHA Program Directive #100-31To: Assistant Regional Directors/OSHASubject: 29CFR1926.451(a)(10), Scaffold Planking

    Purpose: To provide specific information on Microllam laminated planking which

    meets the equivalent requirements of 29CFR1926.451(a)(10).Directives Affected: None.Background: Several regions have reviewed and provided documentation indicating

    Microllam laminated planking is equivalent to scaffold grade planking.Action: Section 29CFR1926.451(a)(10) states, All planking shall be scaffold grades,

    or equivalent, as recognized by approved grading rules for the species of wood used.A comparison of engineering data on Microllam laminated planking with engineering

    data on planking of scaffold grades, as indicated in the West Coast Lumber Inspection

    Bureau Grading Rule, finds that Microllam laminated planking provides the equivalent

    strength of scaffold grade planking, and meets the equivalent requirements in 29CFR1926.451(a)(10).This is not to be construed as either an approval or an endorsement of the product. This

    determination is contingent upon the product continuing to meet the specified engineering criteria which was submitted.

    U.S. SPAN TABLE

    General Notes Design load deflection is limited to L/60.

    Spans shown are considered the distance between the center lines of bearers. Actual Microllam LVL scaffold plank lengths will be greater due to overhangs or overlaps specified in ANSI A10.8. Contact iLevel Trus Joist Heavy Commercial for additional span information.

    Two-span values assume both spans have equal lengths. Contact iLevel Trus Joist Heavy Commercial when the two spans do not have equal lengths.

    Uniform and person loads shown are defined in ANSI A10.8. Proper Microllam LVL scaffold plank selection must be based on the most restrictive load case anticipated when planks are in service.

    PRODUCT IDENTIFICATION

    There are many grades of Microllam laminated veneer

    lumber (LVL). Use only scaffold grade for planking.
