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