Weight of Engineered Wood

Last updated August 16, 2020
The following tables provide the approximate weight (dead load, self-weight) of the various types of engineered lumber (glulam, LVL, CLT, etc.) used in building construction in the US. The tables provide the weight per cubic foot as well as the weight per linear foot for various dimensions of each material.
Weights for plywood, OSB, and other engineered wood panels can be found here.
The weights we give were calculated using the product data sheets or manufacturer specifications of actual engineered wood products. However, the values given in the tables are meant to provide a general idea of typical weights for engineered wood, and should not be used if precise values are needed for critical engineering calculations. When precision is necessary, always refer to the specification sheet for the actual, specific product you intend to use, or contact the technical department of the manufacturer.
