Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) Timber - Pine Timber Products
Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) Timber is an engineered timber product that offers a superior alternative to traditional lumber products. At Pine Timber Products
, we offer a wide range of LVL Timber products, such as LVL beams designed to provide strength, stability and versatility to various permanent structural applications and construction projects.
What is laminated veneer timber?
Laminated veneer lumber (LVL) Timber is a type of structural composite plywood made from multiple layers of thin-graded wood veneers with the wood grain aligned in the same direction. These thin wood veneers are glued with a moisture-resistant adhesive under high pressure and heat to create a strong and stable structural material comparable to solid timber, steel or concrete.
The resulting product is a dense, uniform material with exceptional strength and a durable alternative that can support heavier loads, be produced in different shapes and span longer distances when compared to standard timber. The added durability of LVL beams means it is less prone to shrinking or warping. Laminated veneer lumber is commonly used in different types of applications, including:
- Structural applications: Due to its high load-bearing capacity, LVL is commonly used as a beam or column for structural support in applications such as portal frames, providing exceptional strength & stiffness.
- Flooring systems: LVL-engineered timber is a popular choice for flooring systems due to its ability to span long distances without support.
- Roofing systems: LVL is often used as a ridge beam or purlin in roofing systems, providing excellent support and stability.
- Door and window frames: LVL can be used for door and window frames due to its dimensional stability, strength properties and resistance to warping.
LVL timber offers several benefits over traditional sawn timber, making it a popular choice for construction projects. Some of the main advantages include:
- Strength: LVL-engineered timber is stronger & more stable than traditional lumber products, providing exceptional structural performance.
- Versatility: LVL is versatile and suitable for construction materials that may fulfil the particular requirements of every project that may be used for several purposes.
- Sustainability: LVL-engineered timber is environmentally friendly, made from renewable resources and has a low carbon footprint, making it a sustainable building material.
- Cost-effective: LVL is often more cost-effective than traditional lumber products due to its superior strength and ability to span longer distances without additional support.
