Laminated veneer lumber (LVL)
Laminated veneer lumber (LVL) is an engineered wood product that uses multiple layers of thin
wood assembled with adhesives. It is typically used for pallet ,door core,bed slats,headers,
beams, rimboard, and edge-forming material. LVL offers several advantages over typical milled
lumber: Made in a factory under controlled specifications, it is stronger, straighter, and more
uniform. Due to its composite nature, it is much less likely than conventional lumber to warp,
twist, bow, or shrink. LVL is a type of structural composite lumber, comparable to Glued
laminated timber (Gluelam) but with a higher allowable stress.
