Laminated veneer lumber (LVL) beams

LVL beams are part of the Södra Engineered Wood Product (EWP) system. It's a stable, strong and reliable engineered wood product that will not shrink, twist, cup or bow.

Engineered wood products represent a bold step forward, not only in terms of ease of use, excellent performance, and cost saving characteristics, but in the environmental credentials they offer to specifiers and end users who are increasingly required to prove the eco ratings of the buildings they construct.

The performance of engineered wood products can be accurately predicted which means we can fine tune a design so that exactly the right amount of product is employed for any given situation. Södra is a leading supplier of engineered wood products to the Great Britain and Ireland market and has a wealth of experience in the storage, handling and distribution of these high quality materials.
