    laminates - Laminated veneer lumber

Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) is used as panel- or beam product. It consists of peeled spruce or pine veneers. Individual wood veneers are bonded with their individual ends offset and with fibres primarily in the same direction. LVL is manufactured in a continuous process, using a PF resin. LVL contains veneers with fibres aligned primarily in the major axis, sometimes veneers also align with the minor axis. In the latter configuration, LVL can be used as bracing elements in load-bearing floors and ceilings. LVL containing veneers with fibres aligned exclusively in the major axis are used in load-bearing structures, trusses, beams and rafters. LVL can be used in the same applications as glued laminated timber. LVL is suited for pressure treatments and thus can be designed for special applications, such as in areas with high risk to biological attack (e.g. by fungi or insects) or where special climatic conditions prevail.
