Glenfort is Ireland’s leading supplier of structural timber beams in Oak, Glulam and Douglas Fir.
Structural timber has the advantage over most other structural materials of being renewable and also a relatively good thermal insulation material. At Glenfort our timber is sourced from mills using sustainable and renewable forestry practices.
Here at Glenfort we have an enviable reputation for our Oak beams. The superb quality and grading of our beams is a product of careful timber sourcing at our sawmill facilities.

Our methods are flexible which allows us to create a large variety of styles and features tailored to your designs or requirements. Through a range of processes different tones and textures can be achieved allowing us to cater for any needs – sawn finishes , traditionally worn and rustic, or a sleek and modern highly sanded finish.
Glulam is a natural structural material that is economical, extremely strong and has the added benefit of looking good. Glulam is a highly innovative and versatile construction material engineered for a host of residential and commercial construction applications, these laminated beams are the natural alternative to steel or concrete. Increased design values and improved product performance make this cost competitive material the natural choice for every project from simple structural beams in residential builds to soaring glulam arches for commercial roofs. A direct cost comparison shows that it is competitive with other structural materials; and the lower weight of glulam leads to savings on foundations, transport and erection. Common uses include purlins, ridge beams, trusses, floor beams, ceiling beams, commercial roof structures, complex arches, bridges and columns. Glenfort’s glulam is available in a range of appearances to meet end-use requirements. The strength and durability of glulam beams make them an ideal choice for large, open designs where long spans are required. Here at Glenfort we are one of Irelands leading suppliers of Glulam beams. We have an extensive stock in a wide variety of sizes and lengths to meet your needs.
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.
