What are Glulam Beams?
A Glulam Beam is a structural timber engineered from multiple individual laminations that are finger jointed together. They are then glued up and pressed to form one solid beam.
The term glulam is an abbreviated term that stands for glue-laminated timber. A glulam beam is made with multiple layers of solid wood lumber bonded together with high-strength adhesive to form a single structural unit.
Glulam timber beams can be used in a wide variety of applications and for both indoor and outdoor projects. Common forms include:
Straight Glulam beams, including lintels, purlins, ridge beams, and floor beams
Glulam Columns, including round, square, and complex sections
Glulam Tied arches
Glulam Arched bridge supports
What Species can we offer?
At Constructional Timber we don't just offer on European Whitewood Glulam Beams, we have the capabilities to bring in and machine any of the following species:
European Larch Glulam - European Larch is an orange/pinkish colour that varies on its location, typically found in the Alps mountain range. It is generally considered a durable timber, suited to service class 3 environments for use internally and externally.
Siberian Larch Glulam - Siberian Larch is commonly located more North than European Larch grown in both Scandinavia and Russia. It's unique selling point is that trees are slowly grown, giving the material a tighter grain, more durable than it's European counterpart. With less knots when compared to European Whitewood, it's a more viable solution to more refined projects.
Douglas Fir Glulam - Another alternative to spruce with its key difference being its suitability within a class 3 environment. Grown in Western Europe, this fast growing species is reinforced by its strength to weight capacity whilst retaining nails and fasteners.
European Oak - An extremely strong and durable timber which is highly adaptable to external changes, perfect for a continuous changing environment.
Sweet Chestnut Glulam - An aesthetic alternative alternative, Sweet Chestnut offers similar properties to European Oak in colour and durability but is seen a cheaper alternative.
