Futurebuild® LVL hyCHORD®

hyCHORD® is ideal for truss chords in high-load applications where strength and predictable deflection performance are paramount. With hyCHORD, designers can confidently exploit the excellent strength properties for minimum sections, and then utilise the predicted deflection performance to apply just the right amount of camber to ensure flat ceilings and a no ‘dips or bumps’ roofline.
