BUILDING PRODUCTS FOR STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY
Does your build need timber products suitable for outdoor projects, such as veranda beams? Looking for solutions for floor joists or bearers that are structurally adequate to span long distances and support heavy loads? Materials for structurally integral construction components like floor joists and roof trusses are common across most builds.
With uniform structural strength, low weight and resistance to warping, Big River sources a wide range of LVL beams, I-beams and laminated beams from leading brands such as Carter Holt Harvey and Tilling’s to provide the utility you need and at competitive prices. These highly reliable building materials offer the advantages associated with conventional timber solutions, with the added benefits of:
- Cost effectiveness
- Resistance to warping
- Manufactured to almost any length
LVL BEAMS FOR AN EXTRA LEVEL OF TOUGHNESS
When you need a tough building material for structural applications Laminated Veneer Lumber or LVL beams are the perfect solution. LVL is perfectly suited for load heavy construction, with strength comparable to many hardwoods, concrete and steel. By creating uniformly grained layers you get a timber product that can be made to any specification of length without the inherent weaknesses in knotted timber. This means a product that is not only resistant to warping, it can also span longer distances and carry heavier loads.
I-BEAMS FOR WIDE-SPAN FLOOR JOISTS
I-beams or I-joists are perfect for builds requiring wide spans with fewer load bearers. Its high strength to weight ratio make it perfect for use in floor joists and roof trusses, with spans easily lifted up scaffolding by a single person. Available in lengths of more than 13m, these products offer great versatility in creating open, expansive spaces.
LAMINATED BEAMS COMBINING FORM AND FUNCTION
When you need high capacity load bearing timber with a touch of visual appeal, laminated beams are the solution. Sourced from richly coloured and textured Australian pine & hardwood, these products have the necessary aesthetics which makes them perfect for bearers, lintels and other visible timber elements.
