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.
Our unique systems use a range of elements which combine to create almost any building type or form using the strengths and advantages of LVL in a system-based approach to construction.
We work closely with building design professionals, engineers, prefabricators and builders to introduce them to the exciting possibilities of lightweight mid-rise LVL design and construction; and help develop efficient and innovative engineered timber solutions.
