Dimensionally stable LVL panels
LVL (laminated veneer lumber) panels are made of cross-bonded Kerto® LVL, meaning that one fifth of the veneers are glued crosswise. Strong and rigid Kerto® LVL panels are dimensionally stable, they do not warp or twist. LVL panels provide great workability, they are easy to fasten, nail and drill.
Kerto LVL Q-panel with thicknesses 27–75 mm fulfil the requirements for strength class LVL 36 C and thicknesses 21–24 mm fulfil the requirements for strength class LVL 32 C.
Kerto LVL L-panel with thicknesses 27–69 mm fulfil the requirements for strength class LVL 25 C and thicknesses 21–24 mm fulfil the requirements for strength class LVL 22 C.
Kerto® LVL Q-panel for load-bearing structures
Kerto® LVL Q-panel is a load-bearing, bracing and dimensionally stable, and it can be used in the most demanding structures. Kerto® LVL Q-panel can be used in Kerto® LVL elements that enable stiff and high-quality floor and roof structures. The elements can be equipped with holes for HVAC equipment , and the load-bearing capacity is not reduced significantly.
The structure improves the lateral bending strength and stiffness of the panel, thus increasing the shear strength when used as a beam. With crossbonded veneers, there is an essential reduction in moisture-dependent variations across the width of the panel.
