Our Floor System Product Family

  • e-joist is the premier I-joist product available in Australia.

    e-joist combines the latest engineered wood technology with LVL to create a floor joist that's lightweight, straight and strong and available in lengths up 13.2m. Manufactured from LVL and oriented strand board (OSB), e-joist has a similar strength as a solid LVL beam of the same size but uses much less wood, making it lighter and easier to handle. 

    Service holes can easily be cut through the 9.5mm OSB web with the assistance of the e-joist design guide. The Wesbeam Design Centre offers a floor design and quote service for Wesbeam customers. We have the only 3D timber software with whole-of-house load tracing capability.

  • e-beam is an Australian-made LVL engineered from sustainably sourced timbers for Australian construction conditions. With longer lengths and a strength-to-weight ratio higher than timber or steel beams for the same application can often eliminates the time and cost of crane hire. 

    e-beam is designed and made to exceed the requirements of all relevant Australian standards.

    e-beam LVL has many advantages over traditional building products, including its uniformity of engineering properties. Available in lengths up to 13.2m and in a range of thicknesses including 35mm, 45mm, 63mm and 75mm with depths from 90mm to 450mm.
