LVL comes straight and dimensionally true. This quality minimises time spent on site creating a level floor or roof. It also makes LVL perfect for wall frames.


LVL is stronger than standard timber which gives you a floor or roof with less deflection, that extra span, or a the perfect lintel/beam solution.

H1.2 Treatment

Lumberworx LVL is treated to H1.2 in process. This creates a full H1.2 member using market leading technology. Ridding solvent based treatments from the building are better for all.

LVL Description

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.
