LVL, which is an abbreviation of Laminated Veneer Lumber, is a layered composite of adhesives and wood veneers. Therefore, it is considered to be a veneer based product. It is a well-engineered product combining the aesthetical beauty of natural wood with the best of ultra modern processing technology.

LVL, for the first time, was developed in the early 1970s. It is made up of parallel laminations of veneer, glued and processed together to create a material of high thickness that is, to a large extent, similar to sawn timber. The notable difference between Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) and Plywood lies in the orientation of the veneer layers.

LVL has been in use structurally for decades, particularly in the Northern America, India and various European countries. Being a high-strength engineered wood product, LVL finds its uses primarily in the following structural applications-

• Door Frames
• Window Frames
• Furniture
• Beams
• Joists
• Lintels
• Truss Chords
• Headers &
• Edge-forming material

LVL can be utilized wherever sawn timber is used; but it has high tensile strength relative to sawn timber. One of the salient advantages of LVL is that it can easily be manufactured to almost any size and length to serve a particular purpose, subjecting to the transportation of built piece to the site.

When it comes to manufacture and supply of LVL in India, Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) is synonymous to unwavering trust of millions. Some brands in India carry a legacy of around 6 decades while manufacturing Frames made of LVL.

These frames combine the manufacturing excellence of sophisticated technology to bring out a product that provides an unmatched combination of durability, performance, strength and aesthetic value. These Frames have completely replaced conventional frames made of timber. When compared to traditional frames, these frames are cost effective by 20% and conform to density range: 600 – 750 Kg/ m3 Adhesive – as per IS: 848 BWP grade.
