About Us

Pinkwood Ltd produces a complete line of residential and commercial wood I-Joists. Our state of the art facility is located in Calgary.

When the company was incorporated in 2009, there was no Fire performance standards in North American related to unprotected I-Joists. However, Pinkwood recognized what fire fighters had been saying for years: The I-Joist is a great product, but performs poorly in the event of a fire.

Our primary focus was to produce a fire resistant I-Joist. When we began production in 2010, we manufactured the world’s first I-Joists, which were coated with a fire resistant intumescent paint, during the production process. The first generation of our fire resistant I-Joist was coated with a bright pink paint, which gave rise to our name.

Since then, the US Building code was changed to mandate protected I-Joists over unfinished basements in 2012, and in 2018, Canada’s I-joist regulator, CCMC, announced that a similar Fire Performance Standard would be introduced in Canada in 2019.

We opened our new Calgary plant in 2014, and it was designed to manufacture joists which meet the North American Fire Performance Standard.



While unprotected I-joists provide architectural flexibility and excellent structural integrity, they do not provide sufficient fire protection. At Cook Custom Homes we exclusively use PinkWood’s fire rated I-joists. Our customers appreciate that we use products that protect their investment and their family.
