SmartLVL 16 is a Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) Engineered Wood Product developed specifically for frame and truss applications.

Manufactured from 100% Birch, this newest LVL in the SmartFrame range provides better performance than traditional softwood LVLs.

Higher Performance

The light hardwood veneers give SmartLVL 16 superior stiffness and strength, as well as superior nail plate tooth capacity; all while maintaining a similar weight to regular softwood LVL.

Short-term Water repellent

SmartLVL 16 comes with a clear short-term water repellent.  H20 Shield™ is a high penetrating water-based surface treatment, formulated to repel rain during storage and construction.  H20 Shield™ is paintable with acrylic or oil based coatings, and glueable using standard construction adhesives.

Treatment Options

SmartLVL 16 is supplied H2S glue line treated as standard.  Mixed with the glue, the termicide is evenly distributed through the full cross section of the beam, unlike envelope treatments.

Other treatment options include:

  • H2 termite treatment for north of Tropic of Capricorn
  • H3 treatment against decay, termites and other insects
