NP PLANK is manufactured from NelsonPine LVL (Laminated Veneer Lumber). The structural uniformity of LVL makes it the perfect solution for a safe, lightweight scaffold plank. Each NP PLANK is made by laminating thin veneers together which increases the reliability and strength of the product.

Quality Control and Structural Verification
NP PLANK is manufactured and tested in accordance with the quality controlled process in AS/NZS 4357. Compliance with this process is third party audited by the Engineered Wood Products Association of Australasia (EWPAA). The EWPAA is a Joint Accreditation System of Australia and New Zealand (JAS-ANZ) accredited Product Certification body.
Each NP PLANK is individually proof tested to verify the strength of each NP PLANK exceeds the bending moment requirements for the working loads set out in the Live Load Duty Category Table 1 below.
