Kerto® LVL FireResist is surface impregnated with a fire retardant and it is suitable for use in service class 1
Kerto® LVL (laminated veneer lumber) is used in a variety of applications including beams, joists, trusses, frames, roof, floor and wall elements, components of door and vehicle industry, concrete formwork and scaffold boards.
Kerto® LVL is produced from rotary-peeled 3mm graded softwood veneers, which are then glued together to form a continuous 1.8 or 2.5m-wide product. The 21-90mm thick billets are then further machined to the finished dimensions. The result is an engineered wood product that maintains the natural beauty of wood whilst being strong enough for most types of construction.
Engineered and factory-produced to give uniform strength, rigidity, size and weight, Metsä Wood's engineered wood products out-perform traditional solid wood construction. They are produced at reduced moisture content, forming some of the most stable engineered timber products on the market.
