Glulam beams are basically, Glued Laminated Timber. This material is incredibly strong and is suitable for large spans while being a sustainable alternative to steel or concrete. They are created by gluing together laminates of timber that form a durable and aesthetically attractive finish. Glulam is a structural material that is economical and offers a range of benefits; making it a suitable option for roof and floor designs.
The benefits of glulam beams include:
Excellent strength to weight ratio
Design of straight and curved structures
Easy handling and site working
Suitable for a range of large spans
The structures are purpose built and consist of portals, arched roofs, portal beams and include all associated metalwork for a full structural erection including shoes to foundations.
Glulam is a long-lasting material and is commonly used in bridges, shopping centres, floorboards and beams, roof beams and rafters, and garages. Its strength and versatile design makes it suitable for a wide range of projects.
