LVL Structural Lumber

A high performance more sustainable alternative to lumber, Murphy’s Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) beams, headers and columns are used in structural applications to carry heavy loads with minimum weight. Murphy structural LVL products are manufactured in a controlled environment resulting in straighter, stronger and more uniform product compared to milled lumber, creating a more stable and reliable product than dimensional lumber because it doesn’t twist and warp or shrink over time.

Murphy’s engineered veneer lumber is available in 2.0E product grade.

Thickness – 1-1/8″, 1-3/8″, 1-1/2″, 1-3/4″, 2-1/2″, 3-1/2″, 5-1/4″ and 7″
Widths – 3-1/2 ” to 24″. Specialty rip width on request
