Glue Laminated Timber
Glulam is fast becoming the product of choice for innovative architects and timber framers looking to push the boundaries of aesthetics and function within the commercial housing sector.
The glulam process offers enhanced stability and strength compared to traditional building methods, with a variety of grades and finishes. Its multilayer, laminate form resists deflection, making it well suited to large sections of beams, pillars and curvilinear designs not achievable with single-piece applications.
As the UK timber frame house market grows, glulam is acquiring a reputation as one of the most adaptable, resilient and sustainable building materials available. Whether you want pure strength for non-visual features such as rim boards or hidden beams, or visual grades for exposed timber sections, our glulam materials give you a range of options. They also extend to lengths of up to 25 meters for increased reach and scope.
Using wood from sustainable European forests, we’re able to monitor and control the sourcing of our glulam materials. Produced locally and as close to source as possible, it enables us to minimise transportation and reduce its costs and environmental impacts. In addition, we can create glulam using different species, such as oak and larch, to fully maximise the range of its properties and aesthetics.
Meeting your project vision
We regard glulam as a service we deliver, rather than a commodity we sell. Taking a collaborative approach, we’ll work with you to establish your project vision and goals and offer design consultation to address any special requests or practical considerations you may have. The end result is a bespoke material that’s tailored to your specific design requirements and commercial objectives.
We offer glulam as a stock item, which means we can ensure key sizes are readily available and easily deliverable. It also forms part of a wider, one-stop-shop timber frame offer, so you can incorporate glulam into your order as part of a single, seamless service.
