Laminated Veener Lumber

Laminated Veener Lumber

A homogenous dimensionally stable building material from Sharp Ply

Laminated Veneer Lumber is an engineered, layered composite of wood veneers and adhesive, and an alternative to sawn solid wood. It combines the best of modern process technology with the aesthetic beauty of natural timber. LVL improves the strength of wood by dispersing the weakness from defects (e.g. a knot) over a larger area. In effect, it increases the strength of the weakest part of a length of wood.

Advantages

Doors manufactured using Aditya LVL conform to IS: 4020-1994 standards. LVL is environment friendly since it is made from Non-Conventional Plantation Timber grown outside the forest system. Pressure impregnation with chemicals make it termite and other insect proof. LVL is solid, highly predictable and uniformly engineered wood product that is sawn to consistent sizes and is virtually free from warping and splitting. It has high bending, shear strength and strength to width ratio. It is a strong, durable and stable substitute for conventional wood for buildings, furniture and general wood works. It has properties better than wood since it has eliminated all defects like knots, sloped grains and splits found in plantation wood.
