Standard Timberlab Beams And Posts M


Pago Pago, American Samoa


Dean and Isabel Hudson, Builders


The Hudsons required a small building to utilise an existing location where they could entertain their clients and also use for private gatherings. The prerequisite for design was based around the traditional fale style with use of timber, stone and concrete. They wanted the area to be able to be closed off if necessary but to open up doors to be in tune with nature and the ocean.

TimberLab supplied the complete roof structure for this fale; manufactured in our Auckland factory & shipped to American Samoa. Glulam arches, purlins, TG & V ceiling & metalwork connections were also provided as part of the solution.
TimberLab Glulam timber beams are load-bearing structural members for roofs, floors and other construction situations, e.g. bridges, posts, etc. Glulam uses stress rated, seasoned and selected timbers - usually Radiata Pine or Douglas Fir. In TimberLab’s unique system each single piece of timber is graded to ensure the design values are met.

The process of manufacture is carefully controlled requiring conformance to internationally recognised standards; TimberLab is certified under third party inspection to manufacture Glulam to ASNZS: 1328. TimberLab’s plant is regularly inspected to ensure ongoing compliance.

Laminated Timber is also noted for its inherent ability to withstand the effect of fire. It has a superior fire resistance rating when compared to steel.
