    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies requirements for the manufacture, structural characterization, and structural verification of laminated veneer lumber intended for structural applications, and sets out dimensional tolerances, moisture content, veneer and bond quality, and structural properties to be determined for structural LVL. Also specifies requirements for formaldehyde emission.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies manufacturing, in-grade structural characterization and structural verification requirements for structural laminated veneer lumber (LVL) as a continuously glued assembly of veneers and for which structural design is performed in accordance with AS1720.1 or NZS3603. Design information specific to structural LVL is included in AS1720.1.
