Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) is a high-strength engineered wood product widely used in the construction industry in Australia. It is manufactured by bonding thin wood veneers together under heat and pressure with a moisture-resistant adhesive, resulting in a product that is strong, reliable, and consistent in quality.

Characteristics of LVL Timber:
1. Strength and Durability: LVL is known for its exceptional strength and durability, making it suitable for load-bearing applications. It has a higher strength-to-weight ratio compared to traditional timber.

2. Consistency and Stability: The manufacturing process of LVL ensures uniformity and stability. Unlike natural timber, which can have knots and other imperfections, LVL offers a consistent and predictable performance.

3. Versatility: LVL can be used for various structural applications, including beams, joists, rafters, and columns. It is also used in formwork and scaffold planking.

4. Dimensional Stability: LVL is less likely to warp, twist, or shrink compared to solid wood, providing better long-term performance.

Applications :
1. Residential Construction: LVL is commonly used in the construction of residential buildings for framing, roofing, and flooring systems.

2. Commercial Construction: In commercial projects, LVL is used for structural components such as beams and columns due to its high strength and load-bearing capabilities.

3. Infrastructure Projects: LVL is also employed in infrastructure projects like bridges and large-scale industrial constructions due to its robustness and reliability.

Environmental Benefits:
1. Sustainable Sourcing: LVL is often made from sustainably sourced wood, contributing to environmentally friendly construction practices.

2. Efficient Use of Wood Resources: The production of LVL utilizes smaller, fast-growing trees and minimizes waste, making it an efficient use of wood resources.

Standards and Compliance:
In Australia, LVL products must comply with the relevant Australian Standards, such as AS/NZS 4357 for structural laminated veneer lumber. These standards ensure the product meets specific performance and safety requirements.

Overall, LVL timber is a preferred choice in the Australian construction industry due to its strength, reliability, and environmental benefits, making it an essential material for modern building practices.

 

meySPAN Structural LVL Brochure

Janka rating, also known as Janka hardness test, is a measure of the hardness of wood. It is a standardized test that measures the amount of force required to embed a small steel ball into a piece of wood. The Janka rating is expressed in kN (kilonewton), and the higher the rating, the harder the wood.

The Janka rating is commonly used to determine the suitability of a particular wood species for use in flooring, furniture, and other applications where durability is important. Some woods with high Janka ratings include Brazilian Walnut, Hickory, and Brazilian Cherry, while woods with lower Janka ratings include Pine and Cedar.

It is important to note that while the Janka rating can provide a useful indication of a wood's hardness, it does not necessarily reflect other important characteristics of the wood, such as its resistance to decay, its stability, or its appearance. At Greenhill Timbers, we provide 25 years structural guarantee for all our flooring range.
