Glulam and Microllam LVL Beams
Glulam and Microllam LVL Beams are a laminated timber that has been re- engineered to be stronger and more versatile than traditional wood products. Pound for pound it is stronger than steel so it can span long distances with minimal need for intermediate supports. Glulam is a stress-rated engineered wood product comprised of wood laminations that are bonded together with waterproof adhesives. Typically we use glulams in beams for floor and roof framing where curves are needed.
Microllam LVL beams have a similar product design which are used in straight applications that resists splitting, warping and shrinking. They install quickly with little or no waste.
