LVL stands for “laminated veneer lumber.” It is engineered wood that can be used in many different ways to build buildings and bridges. LVL beam, columns, and panels have become important parts of modern wood construction because of their benefits, versatility, and proven structural performance. Beams, columns, and panels made of LVL have become important parts.
LVL is made of thin veneers that are laminated together with glue made of phenolic that can stand up to the weather. This means that the size of the raw material does not limit the size of the finished LVL product. Even small-diameter logs can be used to make large LVL beams and panels. Also, this means that the size of the raw material doesn’t change the size of the LVL product in the end. When the veneer is made by peeling veneer logs, any natural flaws in the wood, like knots, break up and spread out across the veneer. This, along with the action of lamination, gets rid of flaws’ effect, making the material very uniform. With LVL, the same structures can be made with smaller dimensions, and LVL can also be used when the right sizes of sawn wood are unavailable. Even though the costs of making LVL and other engineered wood products are higher than those of making sawn wood, the advantages of using LVL outweigh the disadvantages.
