See Data Sheet - The technical properties of timber – its durability, high strength-to-weight ratio and cost effectiveness, combined with its aesthetic appeal in any environment, make Engineered Glulam an ideal material for bridge construction. Straight or curved Glulam bridges are suitable for pedestrian or road traffic. Complete pedestrian bridges, pre-assembled with decking and ready to be landed in place on abutments can be provided.
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.
