As Kerto LVL is a strong yet lightweight material, it enables long spans and wide open spaces. One can create long spans over 20 meters with roof elements utilizing the composite action between structurally glued Kerto LVL Q-panels and S-beams. The long spans also apply to intermediate floor elements based on Kerto LVL Q-panels and S-beams, and this creates material savings. In wall elements, using Kerto LVL Q-panels as the bracing structure enables bigger window and door openings with minimized number of bracing walls.
Kerto LVL is a resource efficient choice. Thanks to its excellent strength to weight ratio the structures are lighter and therefore less material is needed. Metsä Wood delivers the Kerto LVL products cut to specific sizes to its long-term element manufacturing partners. This combined to the high-quality of Kerto LVL means there is hardly any wastage of materials.
