LVL (laminated veneer lumber) panels are made of cross-bonded Kerto® LVL, meaning that one fifth of the veneers are glued crosswise. Strong and rigid Kerto® LVL panels are dimensionally stable, they do not warp or twist. LVL panels provide great workability, they are easy to fasten, nail and drill.
Kerto® LVL Q-panel for load-bearing structures
Kerto® LVL Q-panel is a load-bearing, bracing and dimensionally stable, and it can be used in the most demanding structures. Kerto® LVL Q-panel can be used in Kerto® LVL 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.
The structure improves the lateral bending strength and stiffness of the panel, thus increasing the shear strength when used as a beam. With crossbonded veneers, there is an essential reduction in moisture-dependent variations across the width of the panel.
Kerto® LVL Q-panel for floor and wall structures
Full-length Kerto® LVL Q-panel is a popular material in floor and wall panels because it stabilizes the whole structure. LVL panels are also appreciated for their natural beauty. Kerto® LVL Q-panel provides a functional solution in structural components, particularly when a high shear strength is one of the requirements. Q-panel is also a perfect wall panel for refrigerator lorries.
Like all Kerto® LVL products, Q-panel is known for its strength, straightness and dimensional stability.
Kerto® LVL Q-panel is available in the same standard widths as Kerto® LVL S-beam. Additionally the widths of 900, 1200, 1800 and 2500 mm are available. The thickness range is 27–69 mm in steps of 6 mm:
Kerto® LVL L-panel for light non-load-bearing applications
Kerto® LVL L-panel is a new LVL product designed mainly for light and non-load-bearing applications with the possibility to customize dimensions to fit to customer requirements. L-Panel is produced in large panel sizes, but can also be cut to size on request.
L-panel combines excellent technical performance with low weight and dimensional stability, while still maintaining good strength properties. L-panel is a cross-bonded panel with approximately 20 per cent of the veneers glued in the crosswise direction. L-panel is an ideal choice for light- or non-load-bearing wall panels, ceiling panels, furniture, packaging, doors and windows. For specified applications, it can be used for light load-bearing beams and columns.
