What is an LVL Span Calculator?
An LVL span calculator is a tool used to determine the maximum allowable span or distance that Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) beams or joists can safely cover while supporting a load in a construction project.
It helps ensure that the LVL components can support the intended loads without sagging or failing.
Why Use an LVL Span Calculator?
- Safety: Ensures that LVL beams or joists are sized correctly to prevent structural failures and ensure safety.
- Code Compliance: Helps ensure compliance with building codes and regulations that specify maximum spans for structural members.
- Cost Efficiency: Optimizes material usage by using the right size LVL components, reducing construction costs.
