LP® SolidStart® LVL surpasses traditional lumber for dimensional consistency and load-carrying capacity. Ideal for longer spans.
This 2900Fb-2.0E LVL comes in factory-laminated thickness 5-1/4 in to eliminate the need for field nailing and/or bolting of multiple plies.
A strong, straight and durable framing product, SolidStart LVL can be used in place of traditional lumber for greater consistency and design flexibility.
LP SolidStart LVL is made from ultrasonically and visually graded veneers arranged in a specific pattern to maximize the strength and stifness of the veneers and to disperse the naturally occurring characteristics of wood, such as knots, that can weaken a sawn lumber beam. The veneers are then bonded with waterproof adhesives under pressure and heat, resulting in low moisture content for dimensional stability.
