The new version includes revisions that address thickness and labelling in order to comply with national labelling requirements. The brochure is also available as a free downloadable PDF.

In addition, APA has published PRG-305, Performance Standard for APA EWS Stock Glulam Beams. This is a newly released standard and is only available as a downloadable PDF.
