e-beam

e-beam+ There's no substitute for our substitute.

 

Wesbeam's e-beam+ is the only true F17 hardwood substitute which meets all the Australian Standards. And because e-beam+ has a JD3 rating for nails, bolts and screws it's stronger than any imported LVL manufactured from softwood species.

When you specify Wesbeam's e-beam+, you're not only working with a great product – you're also helping in preserving our hardwood resources.

e-beam+ is available in lengths from 3.0m to 7.2 ex-stock with longer lengths available as special manufacture up to 12.6m.

i-beam e-joist for Flooring

Walks all over traditional timber.

e-joist combines the latest engineered wood technology with LVL to create a floor joist that's lightweight and strong.

The LVL and engineered wood product web creates a floor joist that retains the same strength as a solid beam of the same size, but which uses much less wood. This makes it lighter to work with as well as providing cost savings.

e-bearer+joist

Used for Flooring Applications

Together, e-bearer and joist are all you need to construct traditional residential subfloor framing. Engineered e-bearer+joist has greater strength and uniformity than sawn timber, and is comparatively lighter, making it safer and easier to handle.

e-bearer+joist is termite treated, providing a robust barrier to termite attack in above-ground applications.  It is also guaranteed for 25 years against termite attack when used South of the Tropic of Capricorn.

Please note e-bearer+joist is not available in Western Australia.

Chain of Custody

Wesbeam LVL is manufactured from the best quality timber to ensure all our products offer peak performance, strength and reliability. But Wesbeam doesn't just source the best timber we can find. We also make sure that the timber we use is harvested from sustainably managed forest resources. That is why Wesbeam LVL products come with full Responsible Wood (RW) Chain of Custody Certification.

This means that the timber used in Wesbeam's LVL products is sourced from sustainably managed forest resources. Administered under the Responsible Wood Certification Scheme, the RW Chain of Custody Certification is the only timber certification scheme that has an Australian Standard (RW 4707 - 2014). As noted on the Certificate, the Chain of Custody method used by Wesbeam is the Inventory Control & Accounting - Percentage Input/Output - Volume Credit system.

This Australian Standard is a world-class forestry standard that is endorsed by the Programme for Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) scheme, the world's biggest assessor of sustainable forest management. So Wesbeam customers can be confident that the raw material used to produce our LVL can be tracked every step of the way, from the sustainably-managed forest where the timber was grown through to its end use in an LVL product.

As more projects mandate that only certified timber materials can be used, Wesbeam LVL's Chain of Custody Certification enables architects, building designers and specifiers to specify Wesbeam LVL with confidence.

Sustainability:

Wesbeam's engineered LVL is produced from plantation timbers which has many beneficial spin-offs for the environment.

Adding value to plantation timber:

Wesbeam LVL is manufactured from plantation timbers. By applying the latest technology and design to plantation timbers, Wesbeam is able to turn a low value wood into a strong highly engineered wood product that has a high load bearing capacity.

 

A renewable resource:

Because Wesbeam LVL is engineered to be strong and straight, it can be used as a replacement not only for steel but also for traditional hardwoods that are sourced from old growth forests in the South West of Western Australia, or South East Asia.

 

No wastage:

Wesbeam uses 100 per cent of every log that comes through the factory gates. The bark is stripped off and supplied to mulch manufacturers for use in the horticultural industry.

Tree planting program:

Wesbeam will implement a comprehensive tree planting program ($1,000,0000 per year) from 2009. Wesbeam will partner with the Forest Products Commission and with farmers to create commercial tree plantations on their properties.


Alternative energy source:

Research is currently being undertaken to assess if the stumps, branches and treetops left on site after the logs have been harvested can be used to fuel a wood-residue power station, which may be located near to the Wesbeam manufacturing facility.


Restoring native vegetation:

Wesbeam sources its raw material primarily from plantations in Perth. Consecutive Western Australian State Governments have had a long-standing commitment to revert 20,000 hectares of the Gnangara Pine Plantation back to Banksia woodland. The Wesbeam agreement with the Western Australian Government to harvest this pine plantation provides an economic incentive for the Government to realise that commitment.


Water quality and preservation:

The Gnangara Pine Plantation, one of the plantations Wesbeam sources its timber from is located on the Gnangara Water Mounds, which supplies around 60 per cent of Perth's water. By harvesting the pine from the Gnangara Water Mounds, Wesbeam is helping to reduce the pressure on this water source, whilst preserving the quality of the water by allowing the land to revert to native vegetation.


Reducing salinity:

In working with the Forest Products Commission and farmers to promote commercial tree planting, Wesbeam is helping to address the issue of salinity. Salinity is a major blight on the agricultural land of Western Australia, caused by land clearing. The removal of trees from the landscape has caused the water table to rise, bringing the sales to the surface and contaminating the land.
