Kerto® LVL insulated LVL Header

Kerto® LVL insulated lvl header

Unique header solution combines two high performance materials

Master Plank is now Kerto® LVL

​This unique header solution combines two high performance materials into a one-piece, dimensionally stable, structural header with exceptional insulation performance and high speed installation. R-value ratings takes into consideration entire wall assembly utilizing various methods and materials.

Metsä Wood Kerto® LVL (laminated veneer lumber), a superior dimensionally stable and high-load capable engineered wood, comprises the outer structure of the header.

BASF Neopor® EPS Foam contains graphite particles which reflect and absorb radiant heat energy, thereby increasing the materials insulation performance. This means the header can achieve R-value performances far exceeding those possible with standard white EPS.

With an R value of 20 Master Header performs 27% better than conventional batt insulated wall applications.

Benefits:

• Complies with 2009 IRC

• 20 Year 100% R-Value Warranty

• Dimensionally Stable

• High Load Capacity

• Environmentally Friendly

• Predictable Performance

• Single Component Header

• BASF Neopor® Insulation

• Installation Labor Savings
