Who makes LSL lumber?
TimberStrand® LSL Framing Lumber.
What is most LSL currently made from?
LSL is part of a family of products, structural composite lumber (SCL), that are made of dried and graded wood veneers, strands or flakes that are layered upon one another and bonded together with a moisture-resistant adhesive into large blocks known as billets.
Are LVL and LSL the same?
Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) Its shear strength is superior to LSL but doesn’t quite match PSL’s ability to withstand bending stress. LVL is more expensive than LSL but is affordable compared to PSL and glulam.
What does LSL stand for in lumber?
Laminated Strand Lumber
Engineered for consistent performance, TimberStrand® Laminated Strand Lumber (LSL) starts straight and stays straight.
What is LSL engineered lumber?
Laminated Strand Lumber creates straighter walls, making it easier to install cabinetry, millwork and tile. There are no knots, splits or voids and the strength and stiffness properties of laminated strand lumber (LSL) exceed those of traditional lumber.
How is LSL lumber made?
Similar to PSL, laminated strand lumber is made from flaked wood strands that have a length-to-thickness ratio of approximately 150. Combined with an adhesive, the strands are oriented and formed into a large mat or billet and pressed. LSL is used in a variety of applications from studs to millwork components.
How is LSL wood made?
LSL beams and columns are made by shredding wood from fast-growing, low-value hardwood logs, such as aspen, birch and poplar into thin strands. These are oriented for maximum strength and glued together into 8 foot by 64 foot “billets” using a steam-injection process which was patented by MacMillan Bloedel.
What is LVL and LSL?
Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) and Laminated Strand Lumber (LSL) are engineered structural materials manufactured by bonding wood veneers or strands together with a structural adhesive to form a solid member of end sections and length limited only by manufacturing, transport and handling capabilities.

What is TimberStrand® laminated strand lumber (LSL)?
Engineered for consistent performance, TimberStrand® Laminated Strand Lumber (LSL) starts straight and stays straight. As a result, it’s one of the most innovative and versatile building products available — a suitable solution for a diverse range of applications such as tall walls, beams, rim board, sill plates and so much more.
What is Timtim TimberStrand LSL?
TimberStrand® LSL. TimberStrand LSL is a green building solution as well. The manufacturing process combines technology and innovation to produce high-performing engineered lumber using small-diameter trees that are not strong or straight enough on their own to be of structural value as conventional sawn lumber products.
