Laminated veneer lumber - LVL - is an engineered wood product that’s increasingly popular with the construction industry as it discovers LVL’s many advantages over traditional timber.
Wesbeam’s LVL is a lightweight, high-strength building product engineered from wood sourced from renewable, sustainable resources. Our range of LVL products is designed to span further, carry greater loads and withstand the tough Australian climate.
Wesbeam’s Design Centre provides high-level engineering and design advice in the use of Wesbeam’s products in free-standing residential, multi-residential and commercial structures in both LWF and mass timber.
Over 85% of fully and semi-detached homes built in Australia are constructed using lightweight timber framing. Lightweight timber framing is now also increasingly used in the construction of prefabricated multi-storey apartments.
With 15 years’ experience in the Australian LVL industry, our Tall Timber Building Systems division offers a range of high-performing structural LVL solutions for multi-residential and commercial mass timber applications specifically designed for Australian conditions.
Strong, sustainable timber. Readily available and lightweight for its strength, timber has been a trusted building material for centuries.
Wesbeam is Australia’s only LVL manufacturer and distributor - with a world class factory in Perth and next day delivery from Wesbeam distribution centres.
In 1928, Thomas Cullity started Cullity Timbers in Perth, Western Australia
In 1928 Thomas Cullity, the son of Irish immigrants, started Cullity Timbers in Perth Western Australia. It was the beginning of an association between the Cullity name and the timber industry that endures to this day.
The Cullity family – and a team of investors and industry experts – formed Wesbeam in 2001.
Three years and $115 million dollars later, the first billet of Wesbeam laminated veneer lumber rolled off the production line. We’d built a better wood.
Today, Wesbeam is an Australian-owned, unlisted public company whose Board and Senior Management have over 70 years’ experience in the manufacture and sale of timber and wood panel products.
