Glue laminated timber or Glulam as it is more commonly known, is used to form structural columns and beams used in all areas of the construction industry such as Leisure, Retail, Commercial and Educational projects.
Glulam is formed from laying small pieces of timber in the same direction to form larger members and can be formed in curved or straight members to create unique buildings. Glulam timbers’ strength to weight ratio is comparative with all materials and in certain circumstances can offer considerable benefits over other materials.
Glulam can be manufactured using both softwood and hardwood and can use a variety of different types of timber. The most common type of Glulam is white wood spruce but commonly larch, pine and Douglas fir are commonly available, but glulam can be manufactured from any form of timber.
