Laminated strand lumber LSL
Engineered wood products and an introduction to timber structural systems, published by the Structural Timber Association, defines laminated strand lumber as: ‘a structural member made by cutting long thin strands approximately 300mm long and 0.8mm - 1.3mm thick directly from debarked logs. The strands are blended, coated with adhesive and oriented so that they are essentially parallel to the longitudinal axis of the section before being reformed by steam-injection pressing into a solid section. LSL is used in similar applications to laminated veneer lumber (LVL)’.
