e-strut

e-strut engineered LVL roof struts support rafters in stick roofs with tile and metal sheet cladding.

And e-struts are available in lengths of 3.6m and 4.5m which enables design flexibility for the most complex roof shapes.

Overview

e-struts offer minimum material and time wastage when used with e-purlins in the fabrication of stick roofs. Engineered e-struts are highly consistent in their performance and dimensional stability. They have superior compressive strength which resists the dynamic loads associated with high wind coastal conditions. e-struts are comparatively lighter than timber products, making them safer to handle.

Features:

  1. Engineered for straightness and consistent performance
  2. Greater length = greater design flexibility
  3. High strength yet lighter and safer to handle
  4. Chamfered edges for safer and more comfortable handling
  5. Manufactured from 100% plantation timber
  6. Manufactured and properties evaluated in accordance with AS/NZS4357 series - Structural laminated veneer lumber totally compatible for engineering design in accordance with AS1720.1:2010 - Timber structures, Part 1: Design methods 
  7. Suitable for both sheet metal and tile leaf cladding at maximum strut length of 4.5m
  8. JD4 joint group – for nails, bolts and screws e-strut specification

Installation & Maintenance

General: How to handle and store your Wesbeam Laminated Veneer Lumber products.

  1. Wesbeam Laminated Veneer Lumber should be stored well clear of the ground on level bearers spaced at maximum 1800mm centres
  2. It should be covered to keep dry but still allowing for ventilation
  3. Avoid placing LVL over areas susceptible to ponding
