Structural Veneer Lumber

SVL Laminated Douglas Fir

  • SVL is stronger than conventional glulam timber and is ideal for smaller mullion depths and/or larger spans.


  • Lamboo is an engineered, high performance bamboo product that is used within architectural, structural, and design applications, and is structurally superior to its wood counterparts.


A wide variety of stain finishes are available in both water-based and solvent-based options. Please contact Solar Innovations, Inc. to discuss the finish option that best meets your needs. Multi-coat, deep penetrating, microporous wood preservatives and sealers are recommended. Wood can be shipped unfinished and field finished by customers.

*Additional wood species are available upon special request. Please note that wood species listed are available up to 21′ lengths in one piece. All glulams longer than 21′ will require additional finger jointing, affecting aesthetics and strength. These requests must be evaluated by Solar Innovations, Inc. engineers before approvals are granted.
