Our Message to Builders


Our Message to Builders

PinkWood Ltd. uses only the best locally supplied raw materials, specially designed OSB and flange stock. Our strict raw material specifications guarantee that PinkWood joists exceed your expectations. 

The PinkWood facility was installed in 2013 and the plant was designed with the latest high-speed I-joist assembly equipment. Our investment in coating chemistry and proprietary coating equipment sets PinkWood apart from the competition.

Why combine engineered wood products and coatings?  

The changes to North American building codes are trending towards improving fire safety in residential construction. In 2012, the US building code was changed to mandate a new fire safety standard for wood I-joists with unfinished basements. If I-joists are now used in residential homes, the builders in the US have three options:

  1. 1. Install a sprinkler system in the residence;

  2. 2. Drywall the underside of the main floor;

  3. 3. Install a coated, Fire Rated joist. (2012 International Residential Code, Exception 4)

Out of the three options, construction using a fire rated joist is the most economical for builders. Fire rated joists also help minimize the risk of fire during the framing process, when houses under construction are extremely vulnerable to fire.

As a result, when we designed and built our new PinkWood facility, we felt it was imperative to incorporate coating technology in the manufacturing process. Our high-speed facility is the only plant capable of manufacturing either standard or fire rated coated joists, which we refer to as "SafeJoists". 

By supporting PinkWood, our customers are supporting the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and North American producers of OSB and lumber.
