Structural wood, which is developed by laminating, is connected with the vitality again as it is made stronger than its own nature. It exhibits excellent properties for structures with heavy loads and large openings. It is a very elegant timber construction element that combines strength, durability and aesthetic benefits.
Glue laminated on the face of each ply for a more complete bonding.
The adhesive is a waterproof, permanent malamine glue (Akzo Nobel)
Finger-jointed and glued timbers resist individual ply separation and movement.
Lighter in weight than a solid sawn timber or a nail lam.
Custom Beams are designed for specific customer applications. We can provide a variety of custom widths, depths, lengths and appearances. Our glulam is made using European mechanical presses which can be configured to make custom and often complex curved shapes.
Treated beams are resistant to sunlight, moisture, insects, and other elements of nature
Timber has an excellent strength to weight ratio in comparison with steel and concrete. If you consider equivalent beam sizes for the same load bearing capacity in glulam and steel, glulam has approximately 1.5 – 2 times the strength to weight ratio of steel.
Glulam beams are very efficient to produce. The energy required to produce a glue-laminated beam from the log is only a fraction of the energy required to produce steel or concrete. Glulam has superior earthquake resilience and greater resistance to fire than any other structural construction material.
