LVL is a modern engineered wood composite and high quality product that is more uniform and offers improved structural properties over sawn timber. LVL is made from rotary peeled veneers laid up with parallel grain orientation.
A primary feature of LVL is to disperse or remove strength-reducing characteristics of wood by lessening natural defects such as knots, slope of grain and splits that are inherent in sawn timber. The veneers are placed in a specific sequence or “recipe” to maximise the potential of the stiffer and stronger veneer grades.
All LVL supplied by Lumberworx is manufactured by Nelson Pine Industries. All products are stamped with Nelson Pine Industries mill number (919) and the grade of LVL for easy identification and consumer confidence.
