LVL - Laminated Veneer Lumber - comparable in strength to steel and concrete with all the flexibility and environmental benefits of wood
Wesbeam’s LVL is a lightweight, high-strength building material engineered from renewable and sustainable Western Australian plantation timbers. Our range of LVL products are designed to span further and weigh less to optimise efficiency in design and construction.
Wesbeam’s Design Centre offers an engineering and design service in the use of Wesbeam and other complementary products for residential, multi-residential and commercial structures
Over 85% of Australian detached houses are constructed using lightweight timber framing.
Tall Timber Building Systems [TTBS] provides a range of engineered wood based solutions for commercial and multi-residential structures
Readily available and lightweight for its strength. Strong, sustainable and carbon capturing, wood is the greatest renewable resource
Wesbeam is Australia’s only LVL manufacturer and distributor - with a world class factory in Perth and next day delivery from Wesbeam distribution centres.
We peel a log every 6 seconds, 24/7 and turn it into LVL. Take a look
Take a virtual tour of the Wesbeam factory and see how we use $115 million of the latest technology to create an engineered wood product which combines the load-bearing properties of steel with the cost-effectiveness and ease of use of timber.
Wesbeam products are manufactured at the Neerabup plant using state-of-the-art equipment imported from New Zealand, Japan, Finland and Germany. The 25,000 sq.m. plant located on 10 ha operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week and produces in excess of 80,000 cubic metres of LVL products every year.
The tour also provides an insight into the level of research and laboratory testing which is an integral part of our LVL manufacturing program.
