Kerto® LVL (laminated veneered lumber) Q-panels are manufactured in a similar way to Kerto® LVL S-beams but with 20% of its veneers glued crossways to improve lateral bending strength and stiffness.
Kerto-Q offers good dimensional stability and performs well where a high compression strength is required. It is widely used for floor and wall panelling, as well as for other structural building components such as beams. Kerto-Q is particularly suitable as a rim board in timber frame construction.
It is available in a choice of standard widths: 200, 225, 260, 300, 360, 400, 450, 500, 600, 900, 1200, 1800 and 2500mm.
All widths can be specified in 27, 33, 39, 45, 51, 57, 63 and 69mm thicknesses. Good fire resistance is achieved with a properly specified thickness.
