New European LVL handbook is the first comprehensive summary of the properties and end uses of LVL products. It has been compiled and published by the woodworking industry. The handbook is an extensive source of information for designers, engineers and builders.
The LVL handbook was published on September 26, 2019 at the Forum Wood Building Nordic conference in Helsinki. You can download the LVL handbook as pdf.
The Federation of the Finnish Woodworking Industries and the German Studiengemeinschaft Holzleimbau published on behalf of the LVL producers a joint technical bulletin that specifies the strength classes, tolerances and additional design provisions for LVL. The calculations in the LVL Handbook are based on this bulletin.
The Technical bulletin is available on website https://puutuoteteollisuus.fi/images/pdf/LVL_bulletin_eng.pdf
