See Data Sheet - The arch form has long been recognised as providing the most economical support structure. Glulam arches are a low cost, highly efficient structural form. Glulam radial arches are well suited to achieve large, unobstructed, clear span enclosures and can be used for a variety of buildings, such as aircraft hangars, sports stadiums and display buildings.
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.
