LVL Beams

You’ve probably been building with traditional sawn lumber beams and headers for as long as you’ve been building. Now through advances in technology and design, there is a better choice — West Fraser™ LVL headers, beams and columns. They are simply a better alternative than traditional sawn lumber pieces.

West Fraser Beams

Work with a stronger, stiffer, more consistent and more predictable building material. Compared with similar sized sections, our LVL headers and beams can support heavier loads and allows greater spans than conventional lumber.
