Glulam is a natural structural material that is economical, extremely strong and has the added benefit of looking attractive. Glulam is a highly innovative and versatile construction material engineered for a host of residential and commercial construction applications, these laminated beams are the sustainable alternative to steel or concrete.
Increased design values and improved product performance make this cost-effective material the natural choice for any project, from simple structural beams in residential buildings to soaring glulam arches for commercial structures.
A direct cost comparison demonstrates that it is competitive with conventional structural materials, and the lighter weight of glulam results in cost savings on foundations, transportation, and erection.
When architects and engineers are looking for a structural lumber for construction, one of the top choices is always Douglas Fir. It is dimensionally stable and recognised for its strength and ability to take heavy loads. Douglas Fir is visually characterised by its pinky-orange colour, a tight grain and minimal knots. We can supply milled timber to your exact specification, fresh sawn or planed, sanded and treated finishes.
