LVL Frames is a high strength wood product made from wood veneers bonded under heat and pressure and can be used for structural applications. This product is ideal for beams, door frames, window frames and many more applications.
Conforming to IS : 14616: (1999)
Duro LVL Frames have replaced conventional frames made of timber thus expanding the application of timber. Compared to traditional frames, it is cost effective by 20%. Duro LVL conforms to density range: 600 - 750 Kg/ m3 Adhesive - As per IS: 848 BWP grade.
Duro combines the experience and the expertise of being in the trade for more than 55 years and offers yet again the "Durability" with the introduction of Duro Frames made of LVL .Duro LVL Frames combine the versatility of the modern technology to bring out a product which gives an effortless combination of strength and aesthetic value. IS: 4021 - for Timber Door, Window & Ventilator Frames permits the use of LVL (conforming to IS 14616) in manufacturing frames. Duro LVL frame is a high structural material with uniform engineering properties and dimensional properties which makes it superior to sawn timber. In short Duro LVL Frames provide an ideal solution when features such as durability, light weight and dimensional precision are of importance.
