Laminated Veneer Lumber

Overview

Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) is an engineered wood material with defined and reliable strength and stiffness properties. LVL is an engineered, highly predictable, uniform lumber product, because natural defects such as knots,slope of grain and splits have been dispersed throughout the veneer assembly or have been removed altogether. In addition to this, the veneer sheets are placed in a specific sequence and location within the product to maximise the potential of the stiffer and stronger veneer grades. It is suited to a wide range of structural applications, including critical elements such as large span portal frames and primary or secondary beams in commercial buildings.

LVL offers:

  • Consistent structural performance with low variability
  • Third party certification of conformance with AS/NZS 4357 by the Engineered Wood Products Association of Australasia (EWPAA)
  • Long lengths and large cross-sectional dimensions
  • Dimensionally stable product, which is easily installed on site

LVL 13 is recommended for all structural applications including rafters, floor joists and roof beams in Residential, Commercial, Industrial and Rural applications (following design verification).
