STEICOwall and STEICOjoist I-joist products are industrially manufactured products for load-bearing and non load-bearing constructions where a thin high load-bearing hardboard (hard fibre joist) or OSB (oriented strand board) web connects two STEICO LVL R or solid timber flanges. The LVL (laminated veneer lumber) flanges comprise several layers of conifer veneer glued together. The natural wood defects, e.g. knots, are reduced to the individual veneer sheet during the production process and are distributed evenly across the cross-section during layup. This produces an almost homogeneous cross-section of high strength and rigidity.
The STEICOwall and STEICOjoist I-joist products are identical in terms of manufacturing. They differ in terms of application depending on the type of load.
