Glulam Product Guide

neered wood construction. Glulam is an engineered wood product that optimizes the structural values of a renewable resource – wood. Glulam members are composed of individual pieces of dimension lumber. The pieces are end-jointed together to produce long lengths which are then bonded together with adhesives to create the required beam dimensions.

Commercial Lumber Sizes Chart Table | Engineers Edge

Machine stress-rated and machine-evaluated lumber is readily available for end-uses where high strength is critical, such as truss rafters, laminating stock, I-beams and web joints. Machine grading measures a characteristic such as stiffness or density that correlates with the structural properties of interest, such as bending strength.
