GLULAM TIMBER

Dimensional stable building material for engineered timber structures

Glulam (glue laminated timber) is an industrially manufactured product for load-bearing structures.

Glulam is manufactured by finger-jointing shorter board lengths to the required length of the beam. The finger-jointed boards are then face-bonded to each other building up the depth of the beam.

Glued laminated timber has a higher load bearing capacity than solid timber because the beam lay-up can be influenced by choosing specific lamella strength grades which can be positioned to optimize the overall strength grade of the beam.   

The product is a dimensionally stable and is available in a large variety of cross-sections and lengths.

Used as:
• beams
• purlins
• rafters
• trusses
• columns
• frames
 
Used in:
• Residential buildings: single and multi-family houses
• Industrial and warehouses
• Office and administrative buildings
• Schools and kindergartens
• Sports halls and swimming pools
• Salt storage and chemical storage facilities
• Hotel and restaurant buildings
• Exhibition halls
• Bridge structures
