e – joist combines the latest engineered wood technology with LVL to create a floor joist that’s lightweight, straight and strong and available in lengths up 13.
Manufactured from LVL and oriented strand board (OSB), e – joist has a similar strength as a solid LVL beam of the same size but uses much less wood, making it lighter and easier to handle.

General: How to handle and store you Wesbeam Laminated Veneer Lumber products.
Wesbeam #s LVL is a lightweight, high-strength building material engineered from renewable and sustainably sourced Western Australian timbers.
Our range of LVL products are designed to span further and weigh less to optimise efficiency in design and construction.
e -beam is designed and made to exceed the requirements of all relevant Australian standards.
e -beam LVL has many advantages over traditional building products, including its uniformity of engineering properties.
Available in lengths up to 13.
2m and in a range of thicknesses including 35mm, 45mm, 63mm and 75mm with depths from 90mm to 450mm.
Stress grades and timber sizes combine to determine the spanning ability of load carrying members.
Span tables allow users to choose an appropriate size and stress grade to achieve spanning needs.
For simple construction, such as domestic construction, this can be determined from span table supplements in AS1684.
