Glulam Beams

These are bespoke engineered glulam beams that are made to order. Please let us know your requirements and we can get pricing sent to you ASAP.

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.

Extreme Performance

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:

  • Strength

  • Sturdiness 

  • Material characteristic

  • Dimensional Stability

  • Reasonable price

  • More resistant to Fire than Steel
