  • Characteristics
LVL consists of several thin, glued layers of wood. Compared to traditional construction wood these structural beams are straighter, offer better fire-safety, are length-independent, have a more homogeneous structure and can boast more consistent physical and mechanical specs. The beams are not subject to deformation from temperature or moist and are highly resistant to torque, bending, cracking and shrinking. High rigidity per unit of weight and a low susceptibility to bending and vibration make LVL beams particularly suitable for large spans.
LVL beams are used in a range of wooden buildings, including both residential and light commercial construction projects. The beams can be used as a bearing structure or finish for the ends of I beams in fl oors, roofs and walls. LVL is also a good choice for an edge finish or providing extra rigidity. The strength of LVL means the beams can be used singly or in groups like solid wood beams, both in typical wooden constructions or more traditional house-building.
