Metsä Wood's Kerto is a laminated veneer lumber (LVL) product used in all types of construction projects. Kerto is incredibly strong and dimensionally stable. Kerto delivers its high strength from the homogeneous bonded structure. This video introduces you the production process of Kerto lvl, from peeling the tree trunks to dispatching the ready products.
Architect Fabienne Bulle has been working enthusiastically with wood since her time in architecture school. Now she wants to share the story of how she "discovered" Kerto® LVL.
Leading professionals who share our passion for engineered wood, specifically Kerto® LVL (laminated veneer lumber), have their say in the Talking Wood videos. Each expert talks about a subject close to the speakers’ heart. If you’d like to share your story, please contact us.
As the climate is cold, trees grow slowly and this is why the wood fibres become dense, making the wood particularly strong but light, and visually consistent.
The wood we use at Metsä Wood comes from sustainably managed Nordic forests.
