Kerto LVL (Laminated Veneer Lumber) is a wood product developed by Metsä Wood, a Finnish wood products company. It is made by laminating several layers of wood veneers together with strong adhesives, creating a strong and versatile engineered wood product.
Kerto LVL is known for its strength, stability, and durability. It is made from high-quality Nordic spruce wood and has a consistent density and thickness throughout the entire product. It is often used in construction applications where a high strength-to-weight ratio is required, such as in beams, columns, and joists.
One of the key benefits of Kerto LVL is its sustainability. Metsä Wood uses only certified wood from sustainably managed forests, and the production process is designed to minimize waste and environmental impact.
Kerto LVL is available in a range of thicknesses, widths, and lengths, and can be easily cut and shaped to fit specific project requirements. It is also compatible with a variety of fastening methods and can be used in combination with other building materials, such as steel and concrete.
