30 Mar What is Laminated Veneer Lumber?
Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) is an engineered wood product that uses multiple layers of thin wood assembled with adhesives. It is typically used for headers, beams, rimboard, pallet and edge-forming material.
LVL is an engineered product manufactured from peeling wood from logs into layers of thin veneer, approximately 3mm in thickness. The sheets of veneer are assembled together by a strong adhesive through a continuous press, into long billets of 1200mm wide, with a thickness of 35-90mm and cut off in 12m lengths.
The finished product is cut to length and split into sizes to make scaffold planks, beams for housing and various stud materials. From this process, downfall product is sorted that does not meet structural specifications.
LVL can be cut and machined using normal wood working tools.
