RedLam™ Laminated Veneer Lumber
RedLam™ LVL Beams and Headers
RedLam™ Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) beams work well in applications all over the structure. No matter where they're used, they install quickly with little or no waste. RedLam™ LVL is very stable and resists warping, splitting and shrinking.
RedLam™ LVL can be used as main carrying beams, flush beams, headers and wall framing. The RedLam™ LVL manufacturing process removes and disperses the natural defects inherent in wood and produces a product that is strong, dimensionally stable and very reliable.
Stronger than nature
Our production process creates wood members with structural qualities equal to or greater than equivalent sizes of dimensional lumber and most glulam beams.
To produce RedLam™ Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL), sheets of veneer peeled from logs are carefully dried, ultrasonically graded for strength, and evaluated to ensure uniform thickness and moisture content. The sheets are coated with adhesive, layered and subjected to heat and pressure to achieve a permanent bond. This process minimizes many of the natural inconsistencies found in wood, such as knots, splits and wane. The result is an engineered wood product that can support heavy loads and can be precision-cut for a variety of applications including wood beams, headers and Red-I™ I-joist flanges.
