Why use Glulam Beams?
Thanks to modern drying, classification, gluing and pressing methods, it has following advantages over other construction materials. Even though it is a very light wooden material, it has a capacity to carry heavy loads. It is lighter than steel that has the same load-carrying capacity. Laminated wood beams merge easily with concrete, steel and other stone constructional elements.
It is worth noting that in the unfortunate case of a fire breaking out in a building the thick glulam beams can withstand a tremendous amount of heat and will char on the outside of the beam effectively acting as a fire shield for a long period before failing compared to steel that will go soft and fail quicker.
Other Advantages being:
More resistant to Fire than Steel
