Glulam is the commonly used abbreviation for Glued Laminated Timber. Glulam’s tensile characteristics make it suitable for long span, load-bearing widths, such as bridges. It is an exceptionally strong material, used for load-bearing structures where visual appearance is important. It can also be shaped, helping to form spacious buildings.
Glulam is manufactured from selected high-grade timbers using small cross-sectional boards; finger jointed and laid with the grain parallel to form larger cross sections and lengths. This produces exceptional strength to weight ratio suitable for long span load bearing structures combined with the aesthetic appeal of timber.
The versatility of Glulam is recognised as a structural building material for all market sectors. With increased demand for Off Site Manufacture and sustainable construction, Pasquill have extended our product and service offer to include Glulam.
