Hyspan® LVL  

Laminated veneer lumber specifically manufactured
for a wide range of structural applications in residential housing, commercial buildings and other structures.

Hyspan® is manufactured in Australia from Radiata Pine veneers which are rotary peeled, dried and laminated together under heat and pressure in continuous long lengths. The grain direction of all veneers is orientated in the longitudinal direction. The adhesive system provides a Type 'A' Bond (marine) which has proven performance for in excess of 50 years.

Hyspan® is especially well suited where long lengths and clear spans are required, and is often used in place of steel, which is heavy and difficult to install.

What can builders and specifiers expect from Hyspan®?

High structural reliability:   Hyspan® is significantly more uniform than normal sawn timber because of its unique laminated construction.

Strong but lightweight:   Hyspan® has a high strength-to-weight ratio when compared with other commonly used structural materials. This means lighter members and therefore improved productivity on-site.


Straight and true cross sections:    Hyspan® is ripped from a 1.2 metre wide continuous length. The result is straight members with uniform and true cross sections.

Stability and accuracy:   Hyspan® is a seasoned, manufactured product which has little tendency to warp, bow, shrink, twist or split. Hyspan® can be width sawn or docked on-site to the required size or lengths without effecting the design properties.

Easier and more economical to install:   When building with Hyspan® there's no need to plane or straighten members. Normal wood working tools and techniques can be used.

Guaranteed quality:   Hyspan® is product certified by the Plywood Association of Australia (PAA).
