Span tables for Kerto LVL


​Span tables for Kerto LVL beams, panels, studs and I-joists help designers to work faster and more efficiently. In the tables below describe the most common measurements according to local requirements for floor joists, headers and lintels. By using these tables you can find the most optimal cross-sections for the structures of your project.

 LVL is suitable for floor structures to wood, steel and concrete based buildings Its unique properties offer material efficiency and fast installation both for prefabrication production and on-site assembly. LVL beams can be produced with wide range of cross-sections sizes offering potential to optimize structures. It has good workability with ordinary wood working tools.

For more technical information about using Kerto LVL, see Kerto LVL manual and the European LVL Handbook.

Span tables for LVL floor joists

Tall and slim LVL floor joists helps to span long floors and offer possibility for flexible floor plan. LVL beams can be designed to have large openings to allow also cross-links for the heat, ventilation and water ducts.


Span tables for LVL headers, lintels and primary beams in floors

Choosing LVL for main beam allows to get more open space between load-bearing columns or walls offering larger openings for example windows and doors. Its veneers structure offer straight and accurate cross-sections with high modulus of elasticity.


Span tables for LVL headers, lintels, ridge beams, primary beam and primary purlins in roofs

Roof needs space for insulation and simple smooth surfaces to allow fast installation of insulations. LVL main beams in roofs offer accurate cross-section sizes, straightness and lightness.


Span tables for LVL non-load-bearing partition walls.

LVL based wall studs allow to achieve very good staginess of partition wall surfaces due to its dimensional stability. It offers also a good connection surface for door frames and possibility for fast paneling.
