Futurebuild® LVL hyPLANK®

hyPLANK® is a strong yet lightweight laminated veneer lumber (LVL) scaffold plank. The defined structural properties of LVL and strict quality control processes ensure safe and consistent performance, thus hyPLANK has significantly higher structural reliability than sawn timber. This makes hyPLANK ideal to use in place of conventional timber, and where modular systems cannot accommodate the size and shape of the scaffolding requirement. hyPLANK is also used to considerable advantage where corrosion is a hazard for metal planks.
