GLULAM

GLULAM

Since Glulam can be produced in almost any shape and size, from long straight beams to complex curved arch configurations, it provides the builder/architect's specific requirements to express their artistic concepts in a building. Glulam can be produced with many existing wood species. Tree species such as pine, spruce and fir are generally used in the production of glulam.
