#40 Wood I-Joist for Form Construction

Description:  This is a stack of wood I-Joists used to span long distances between supports in a wood frame structure.  Wood I-Joists are typically made of solid wood flanges, the two fat outer parts top and bottom, and an OSB (oriented strand board) web, the skinny center part.  I-Joists like this are advantages because they carry load more efficiently than a comparable solid wood member, are lighter than a comparable solid wood member, and can be ordered in spans that would be prohibitively expensive to for solid wood members.  This job is using these wood I-Joists to prop up form work for concrete, and is thus going to make full use of the dozens of I-Joists bundled here.
