Description and Applications

hySPAN is structural laminated veneer lumber (LVL) which has been manufactured in accordance with AS/NZS 4357. hySPAN is manufactured from plantation timber, which is rotary peeled, dried, and laminated together in continuous long lengths. The veneers are bonded together using a Type ‘A’ (marine) bond, which has proven performance for in excess of 50 years. hySPAN is produced with a minimum grade ‘D’ face and is not generally used for appearance applications.

Properties and Identification

The properties of hySPAN solutions range have been determined by testing as required by AS/NZS 4357. Free designIT software or span tables can be used to specify hySPAN beam sizes for houses or similar structures. Alternatively, the product specification and properties for design to AS1720.1 are available at » here

Applications

hySPAN is suitable for all structural applications in residential, commercial, industrial and rural applications (following design verification). hySPAN is not intended to support brickwork or other heavy masonry products.

Termite Protected

hySPAN H2-S Terminator is available in all sizes and is part of the Carter Holt Harvey Terminator range. hySPAN H2-S Terminator is treated against termites south of the Tropic of Capricorn. The treatment is applied to the glueline during manufacture to achieve full termite protection to the core of the beam. No further sealing is required on cut ends, holes or notches.

Other treatment levels are available from suppliers on request, but treatment is limited to above ground use. hySPAN cannot be readily treated for in ground contact applications.

Environmental certification

Carter Holt Harvey ensures that its wood is legally sourced from managed forests and offer FSC ‘Chain of Custody’ certified upon request for green star points. Both hySPAN and hySPAN+ are manufactured using an ‘A’ Bond with less than 0.5mg/l Formaldehyde (equivalent to E0) emissions from the final product.

Moisture content

hySPAN, at time of despatch from the manufacturing site has a moisture content of between 8-15%.

  1. Stack on level bearers to keep flat and straight.
  2. Stack well clear of the ground for good ventilation.
  3. Store under cover to keep dry prior to installation.

Note: After installation, exposure to sun and rain for normal periods of construction is not a cause for concern.

Installation
