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.
e-beam and e-beam+ [F17] Characteristic Values for Design are now available for download
Engineers and architects are always finding new ways to use our versatile LVL products. But for more creative applications, sometimes our standard span tables are not enough.
That’s why we’re now publishing a full set of LVL Characteristic Values for Design Criteria for our popular products e-beam and e-beam+ [F17].
Using this newly-available data allows engineers to use first principle analysis to design outside the standard span table applications and create more complex structures whilst still ensuring strength, serviceability and performance efficiency.
The new downloadable data sheets give critical values for characteristic design strength and stiffness, including; compression and tension strength, shear and bending strength, and bearing strength, Modulus of elasticity along with other useful information.
The new data sheets are available for immediate download below.
