Laminated veneer lumber - LVL - is an engineered wood product that’s increasingly popular with the construction industry as it discovers LVL’s many advantages over traditional timber.
Wesbeam’s LVL is a lightweight, high-strength building product engineered from wood sourced from renewable, sustainable resources. Our range of LVL products is designed to span further, carry greater loads and withstand the tough Australian climate.
Wesbeam’s Design Centre provides high-level engineering and design advice in the use of Wesbeam’s products in free-standing residential, multi-residential and commercial structures in both LWF and mass timber.
Over 85% of fully and semi-detached homes built in Australia are constructed using lightweight timber framing. Lightweight timber framing is now also increasingly used in the construction of prefabricated multi-storey apartments.
With 15 years’ experience in the Australian LVL industry, our Tall Timber Building Systems division offers a range of high-performing structural LVL solutions for multi-residential and commercial mass timber applications specifically designed for Australian conditions.
Strong, sustainable timber. Readily available and lightweight for its strength, timber has been a trusted building material for centuries.
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.
