hyCHORD® Futurebuild LVL Truss Chords

Product Description

hyCHORD® is a laminated veneer lumber (LVL) product ideal for truss chords in high-load applications where strength and predictable deflection performance are paramount. With hyCHORD, designers can exploit the increased strength properties to typically provide reduced sections (when compared to sawn timber), and utilise the predicted deflection performance to target the ideal level of camber to ensure flat ceilings and a no ‘dips or bumps’ roofline.
