LVL Applications

Wesbeam’s laminated veneer lumber products can be used in all structural applications where traditional sawn timber has been used.

Wesbeam products are typically treated to Wesbeam’s e2S as a minimum, whilst products used north of the Tropic of Capricorn are treated to H2 and products specified for external applications are specified to H3.

Our engineered timber products are manufactured to meet the specific needs of the residential and commercial building industries.

    2. e-joist For rafters supporting roof cladding and ceiling loads
    3. e-splay Designed to fit between the wall plate and the underside of the rafter or roof cladding, creating an LVL alternative to steel universal beams
    4. e-maximus Can be used to replace steel beams
    5. e-stick [roof] Can be used as a substitute for MGP10 Pine in roof framing applications such as ridge boards, hip rafters, valley rafters, hip and valley boards and hanging beams
    6. e-strut Used as roof struts to support stick roofs for tile and metal sheet cladding
    7. e-purlin Used as a roof underpurlin to support stick roofs for tile and metal sheet cladding
