When building a new home, choosing the right flooring system is crucial. A good floor system not only provides a solid foundation but also ensures a home is structurally safe. This is where Wesbeam’s floor systems come in.

Wesbeam is a leading Australian supplier of engineered wood products, including LVL I-joists used in floor systems. Wesbeam's floor systems are designed to provide exceptional performance and durability, while also being sustainable. Wesbeam supplies our I-joists (branded e-joist) along with our LVL beam product (e-beam) as part of our floor system product family. The finished product is a floor system that’s strong yet lightweight. Here are just a few reasons why you should choose a Wesbeam floor system.

Strength and Durability

Wesbeam floor systems are engineered using advanced technology to provide maximum strength and durability. Wesbeam's LVL technology allows us to manufacture products that are stronger and more consistent than standard timber. Wesbeam's floor systems are designed to handle heavy loads, making them ideal for residential construction.

Ease of Installation

Wesbeam's flooring systems are easy to install, reducing construction time and labour costs. Our I-joists come prefabricated and can be quickly and easily installed. This ensures your project stays on schedule and within budget. Wesbeam additionally provides leading technical assistance and floor frame design support to builders.

Cost of Installation

A timber floor system is the cheapest option when it comes to floor framing. I-joists are also one of the most cost-effective options for floor systems requiring long spans of framing. This means Wesbeam's flooring systems are versatile and can be used in a variety of applications for a relatively low price.


Wesbeam is committed to sustainable forestry practices. We ensure that our wood products are responsibly sourced and managed. Wesbeam's floor systems are manufactured using sustainably harvested Australian wood and are designed to be energy-efficient. Using our products can reduce the environmental impact of your building project.

Using I-Joists for Your Floor System

Timber I-Joists are commonly used for both residential and commercial floor systems. This is because they are strong yet lightweight and have excellent spanning capabilities. The i-joist design also allows for service holes to be cut through it without compromising its strength. Wesbeam’s e-joist combines our LVL technology with the i-joist design. This creates a floor joist with a great strength-to-weight ratio.
