**X-Beam**

Architectural appearance X-Beam is 3-1/2" and 5-1/2" wide glulam that fits flush with standard framing and is available in conventional and I-Joist depths.

Notes:

- Fb shall be adjusted by the volume effect factor using the following formula: Cv = (5.125/b)
^{1/10}x (12/d)^{1/10}x (21/L)^{1/10}< 1.0 where: b = beam width (in), d = beam depth (in), L = beam length (ft) - For non-prismatic members, notched members, members subject to impact or cyclic loading, or shear design of bending members at connections (NDS-05 3.4.3.3), the design shear (Fv) shall be multiplied by a factor of 0.72.
- The Fv values do not include adjustments for checking.

**Sizes:**

- Inventoried Widths: 3-1/2", 5-1/2" 6-3/4", 8-3/4"
- Inventoried Depths

## X-Beam Columns

X-Beam glulam columns are architectural appearance, surfaced four sides and all four edges are eased. These glulam columns remain straight and true.

- Column Sizes: 3-1/2" x 6", 5-1/2" x 5-1/2", 5-1/2" x 6"
