Product Detail

Overview

An engineered Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) suitable for structural purposes in a range of residential and commercial applications.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Engineered LVL eliminates many of the natural defects found in timber to improve its uniformity and strength to weight ratio. LVL also replaces the need for solid timber and has a low Embodied Energy (EE) in comparison to structural steel. The lumber is manufactured by laminating plantation Maritime or Radiata Pine veneer using a phenolic formaldehyde adhesive. The finished product has an E00 formaldehyde rating (the lowest possible).

The product is also available with a termite treatment. The treatment uses Bifenthrin, a toxic synthetic pyrethroid. However, it is used in very small amounts and the final product is considered to be of low toxicity.

Due to the engineered properties of the product it is available in significantly longer lengths than standard timber and is available in a range of thicknesses including 36mm, 45mm, 63mm and 75mm, with depths from 90mm to 450mm (deeper sections can be supplied on order).
