Glue Laminated Beams
Glue laminated beams (glulam) provide a distinct combination of strength, flexibility, and quality that makes them the natural selection for use in commercial construction.
The high strength and stiffness characteristics of glulam beams are ideal for commercial applications. Dimensional kiln-dried lumber is glued together for use as headers, support columns and horizontal beams.
Used as hidden or exposed structural supports, Glulam beams are more economical, easier to manipulate and install on-site, and are lighter than steel making installation a breeze. Their strength and stiffness make them ideal for commercial applications allowing for long spans, minimizing columns, and maximizing uninterrupted space.
Glulam beams are available in both balanced (V8) and unbalanced (V4) layups. Balanced layups are optimized for continuous span and cantilevered applications while unbalanced layups are preferred for simple spans to maximize resource utilization.
Our quality-driven manufacturing process virtually eliminates shrinkage and warping for enduring structural performance. Rigorous testing and quality assurance ensures a durable, dependable and safe product.
