Delivering proven structural reliability and design versatility.
What is LVL?
Futurebuild® LVL is an engineered wood product made from multiple layers of wood veneer laminated together under precise factory conditions. Combined using heat and pressure, the result is a solid, consistent material that delivers proven structural reliability along with design versatility.
hyONE® is New Zealand's highest stiffness laminated veneer lumber (LVL) product and is ideally suited in applications where depth is restricted or when flitch beam or hot rolled steel section is required.
hyCHORD® is a laminated veneer lumber (LVL) product ideal for truss chords in high-load applications where strength and predictable deflection performance are paramount. With hyCHORD, designers can confidently exploit the excellent strength properties for minimum sections, and then utilise the predicted deflection performance to apply just the right amount of camber to ensure flat ceilings and a no ‘dips or bumps’ roofline.
edgeFORM® is a laminated veneer lumber (LVL) product manufactured from plantation timber veneers and assembled in a pre-defined pattern to be lighter, straighter and more uniform than traditional alternatives.
hyFRAME® is the ideal framing solution for both rural and light commercial buildings, including all manner of shed requirements and includes the LVL components as part of your total build system.
Timber Concrete Composite (TCC) Flooring systems from Futurebuild LVL optimise the advantages of both LVL beams and a concrete slab, combining both for a structural solution including inherent acoustic and fire advantage.
The superior structural properties of LVL and the solid, highly predictable uniformity of the products means Futurebuild LVL can be specified with confidence across residential and commercial applications.
