Kerto-Q is a load-bearing, bracing and dimensionally stable LVL panel used in the most demanding structures. It can be used in Kerto-Ripa elements that enable stiff and high-quality floor and roof structures. The elements can be equipped with holes for HVAC equipment, and the load-bearing capacity is not reduced significantly.
Kerto-Q is cross-bonded Kerto, meaning that one fifth of the veneers are glued crosswise. This structure improves the lateral bending strength and stiffness of the panel, thus increasing the shear strength when used as a beam. With cross bonded veneers, there is an substantial reduction in moisture-dependent variations across the width of the panel.
Kerto-Q panel for floor and wall structures
Full-length Kerto-Q is a popular material in floor and wall panels because it stabilizes the whole structure. Kerto-Q LVL panels are also appreciated for their natural beauty. Kerto-Q provides a functional solution in structural components, particularly when a high shear strength is one of the requirements. Kerto-Q is also a perfect wall panel for refrigerator lorries.
Like all Kerto LVL products, Kerto-Q is known for its strength, straightness and dimensional stability.Kerto-Q is available in the same standard widths as Kerto-S. Additionally ,the widths of 900, 1200, 1800 and 2500 mm are available. The thickness range is 27–69 mm in steps of 6 mm:
