What is a Glulam Beam?

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

  • Tied rafters

  • Glulam Trusses

  • Glulam Tied arches

  • Glulam Arched bridge supports

  • Curved beams

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 typically found in the Alps mountain range.

The Timber is typically a orange/pinkish colour but can vary dependant on its location. 

European larch Glulam is generally considered a durable species and is suited to service class 3 environments meaning that this can be used both internally and externally. 

Siberian Larch Glulam - Siberian Larch is usually found further north than European Larch as it's grown in both Scandinavia and Russia. The main draw of using this material is that the trees are slowly grown which gives the material a tighter grain therefore making the species more durable than its European cousin. Typically Siberian Larch has less knots than our standard Spruce Whitewood, making it a great option when looking for something a little more refined.

Douglas Fir Glulam - Douglas Fir is another species which can be used as an alterative to spruce with the main difference being that it is suitable in a service class 3 environment. All the Douglas Fir Glulam we use is grown in Western Europe and is one of the fastest grown timber species on the market. Douglas Fir is often documented for its amazing strength to weight ratio and its excellent ability to hold nails and other fasteners. 

European Oak is an extremely strong and durable timber which is highly adaptable to external changes. 

Sweet Chestnut Glulam - An interesting alternative, Sweet Chestnut offers similar properties to European Oak in colour and durability but is seen a cheaper alternative.
