The European LVL industry (Metsä Wood, Pollmeier Massivholz GmbH & Co. KG, STEICO SE and Stora Enso) has decided to launch LVL strength classes. This bulletin introduces the classes along with other product and design provisions not yet covered in the respective standards.
This European LVL Handbook serves as a guide for architects, structural engineers, technical wholesalers, off-site element manufacturers, contractors, carpenters and other construction professionals, and as an educational resource. The handbook has been prepared by the Federation of the Finnish Woodworking Industries during 2018-19.
The publication Moisture-proof CLT construction without a full temporary shelter provides guidance on how to handle CLT elements when building without a full shelter. It is intended to help project planners and builders achieve an industrial and dampproof CLT build.
