Glue Laminated Timber

Glulam is a structural engineered wood product that comprises of multiple laminations of solid or finger-jointed timber, bonded together with adhesives (in many cases, 45mm thick).

We manufacture in both Pure Resourcinal and PUR Polyurethane which are durable, moisture-resistant and structurally rated adhesives.

Manufactured onsite with multiple finger-jointers and endless straight and square laminating jigs; the limitations on Glulam dimensions, lengths, and shapes, lie only within the machinery that produces it.

Finger Joint
Solid Joint
We specialise in extreme lengths, curves and twists and large dimensions while also producing everyday sizes.

Curves

Glulam can be curved to virtually any radii without loss of strength

Acoustics

Glulam can be curved to virtually any radii without loss of strength

Earthquake Resistance

Exceptional performance in seismic events.

Fire resistance

Glulam performs well in fires continuing its structural function long after steel trusses would have collapsed in the same situation.

High strength to weight ratio

means lighter members are required, enabling a reduction in
size in other structural components

Chemical resistance

Glulam doesn’t rust, making it perfect for harsh environments like corrosive chemical stores, fell-mongers, acid plants, salt-water environments and swimming pools.

Renewable resource

Wood is the only truly renewable construction material. Glulam is made from New Zealand plantation timber and as a wood product, acts as a carbon sink.

Reduces Energy Use

Glulam has outstanding insulation properties and the plantation timber used for manufacturing takes 14 times less energy to produce compared to an equivalent steel beam.
