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 sustainably sourced Western Australian 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.
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
