Traditional sawn lumber beams and headers have been around for as long as you’ve been building. Now through advances in technology and design, there is a better choice—Pacific Woodtech Laminated Veneer Lumber (PWLVL) headers and beams. They are simply a better alternative than traditional sawn lumber pieces.
Work with a stronger, stiffer, more consistent and more predictable building material. Compared with similar sized sections, our PWLVL headers and beams can support heavier loads and allows greater spans than conventional lumber.
Each piece of PWLVL is pressure sprayed with a UV inhibitor and sealed with emulsified wax.
Pacific Woodtech Laminated Veneer Lumber (PWLVL) must be used in dry service conditions, where the moisture content in service is less than 16%.
