The Glulam product
A core feature of the Glulam product is it’s inherrant load bearing strength. This strength allows architects to design large wooden spans offering shapes and lines pleasing to the eye and of a tactile nature.
The use of large spans creates open spaces which gives a sense of wellbeing and relaxation.
Glulam products are an eco-friendly alternative to concrete and steel, it’s durability is second to none, it is light and easy to handle, requires no boxing in or cladding and Glulam can be pre-cambered to counteract the effects of deflection in long spans. Glulams competative price makes it a clear choice for all types of construction.
The use of Glulam as the structure of a swimming pool building is widely accepted due to its excellent resistance to the heated, highly chemical environment encountered. Curved portals or straight beams are both popular and are not limited by size as 40 metre spans are fairly commonplace. Call us to discuss ideas on how we can create an unusual recreation area to suit your needs.
Pedestrian and light vehicular bridges are popular due to their environmentally friendly construction and aesthetic qualities. Blending into their rural surrounds make them ideally suited to golf courses, parks, wetlands and estates.
We have recently completed a two story spiral staircase that consisted of large treads and landings supported from a central circular core. Using Glulam offers a number of alternatives and finishes.
Glulam products are only sourced from sustainable sources ensuring that our environment is preserved.
