Glulam is the nickname for timber. Thin sheets of wood are pressure bonded with waterproof adhesives, resulting in a wood material that’s stronger than traditional woodcan cover longer spans, since it’s stress engineered and not sawn wood. Glulam can also be moisture resistant and can be a flame retardant.

Glulam is manufactured after the same formulation as plywood sheets of wood glued together.

Glulam timbers are stronger and less expensive than steel beams or sawn wood, which makes them a fantastic selection for open areas with long spans.

Not only for use, glulam has flexibility.
