PWT LVL 2.1E 3100Fb 5-1/4" x 14"

Out Of Stock

Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) surpasses traditional lumber for dimensional consistency and load-carrying capacity. Ideal for longer spans.

This 3100Fb-2.1E LVL comes in factory-laminated thickness 5-1/4" to eliminate the need for field nailing and/or bolting of multiple plies.

A strong, straight and durable framing product, LVL can be used in place of traditional lumber for greater consistency and design flexibility.

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.

PWT LVL (PWLVL) must be used in dry service conditions, where the moisture content in service is less than 16%. PWLVL should be stored lying flat and protected from the weather. Keep the material above ground to minimize the absorption of ground moisture and allow circulation of air. Except for cutting to length, PWLVL shall not be cut, drilled, or notched. (Heel cuts may be possible. Contact your PWT rep.)
