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 sustainable Western Australian plantation 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 detached homes built in Australia are constructed using lightweight timber framing. LVL wall and floor framing is also experiencing rapid uptake in the new and exciting market for prefabricated buildings
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.
Wesbeam’s timber is sourced from sustainable forests, benefiting people and our environment
By sourcing timber from sustainable forests Wesbeam ensures our forests are productive and healthy for future generations.
At Wesbeam, we only use timber sourced from sustainably-managed forests to manufacture all our LVL products. This renewable resource governed by strict environmental controls ensures our forests are kept productive and healthy for future generations.
Harvesting timber from sustainable forests benefits both people and our environment. People need forests for the resources they provide; and as a place to live or to make a living. Sustainable forestry ensures future generations will have forests to meet their needs and values.
And at the environmental level, sustainable forests make an important contribution to carbon sequestration and the conservation of water, soil and biodiversity.
Our timber is sourced from sustainable forests primarily managed by the Forest Products Commission (FPC) and certified to Australian Standards aligned with Responsible Wood Certification Scheme for environmental, social and economic sustainability.
