LVL is Laminated Veneer Lumber, and one of the most popular timber products for projects requiring high-strength materials.
This engineered wood is made of thin layers of timber joined with adhesive, then heated and bonded under pressure. It’s mostly used for structural builds which require floor joists, headers, beams, rafters and edge-forming material. The cross lamination of the layered veneers reduces the effects of cupping in high moisture environments.
As it is an engineered timber product, it can be made to almost any length and is comparable in strength to solid timber, while offering good integrity and reliability.
