SmartForm 11.7 LVL is a structural laminated veneer lumber (LVL), manufactured to meet the requirements of AS/NZS 4357 - Structural Laminated Veneer Lumber. It is produced in industry standard sizes, painted safety yellow for easy visual identification, and is intended for use as concrete formwork support structures such as joists, bearers, walers and soldiers.

SmartForm 11.7 is manufactured for Tilling Timber Pty Ltd under an evergreen exclusive agreement with the world's best toll LVL manufacturers under the benchmark quality systems of the APA - The Engineered Wood Association.


APA – The Engineered Wood Association is an accredited certification body under ISO 65 by Standards Council of Canada (SCC) and an accredited inspection agency by the International Code Council (ICC), International Accreditation Service (IAS) under ISO/IEC 17020. APA is also an accredited testing organisation recognised by IAS and SCC under ISO/IEC 17025.


Each piece of SmartForm 11.7 is branded at least once with the SmartForm branding, compliant with AS/NZS 4357 structural LVL standard for identification and evidence of compliance with manufacturing control standards and product quality certification. It is also sealed with a water resistant yellow coating to increase its durability, providing the user with extended lifecycles and superior performance.

Our Design Guide and load tables assist in the selection of SmartForm 11.7 formwork materials in standard applications. All load tables in this document are developed using in-grade tested characteristic properties of SmartForm 11.7 as distributed by Tilling Timber. Other look-alike substitution LVL formwork products manufactured by different producers may have different properties, and their specification from these tables may create an unsafe support system or unsatisfactory performance.

Our publication is therefore strictly limited to the design of joists and bearers in common formwork applications. Reference should be made to AS 3610-1995 plus supplements 1 and 2 and an experienced structural engineer for methods and details of developing lateral restraint, providing suitable vertical support to joists and bearers in the above tables as well as the robustness and stability of the formwork system as a whole.
