LVL (Laminated Veneer Lumber) is a high-strength engineered wood product used primarily for structural applications. It's 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 detached homes built in Australia are constructed using lightweight timber framing. LVL wall and floor framing is also experiencing rapid uptake in the new and exciting market for prefabricated buildings
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.
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.
Using Wesbeam’s unique e-house [whole of house] software, the Design Centre models lightweight frame - LWF - structures for residential, multi-residential and commercial buildings utilising LVL, i-joists or floor cassette systems and then creates accurate, detailed and cost-effective working drawings.
The software conducts a full dynamic and static load trace from roof to foundations through every structural element and for every connection. And its ‘What-if …?’ feature trials various configurations to work out the most cost-effective solution.
Intelligent load calculation produces a final design which fully optimises the use of materials without compromising build quality.
Wesbeam’s Design Centre offers a free service to frame & truss manufacturers, timber merchants, engineers and builders seeking optimised solutions for buildings made with wood
