McIntosh Glulam timber beams are load-bearing structural members for roofs, floors or other construction situations, e.g. bridges, posts, etc.Glulam is an engineered product using stress rated, seasoned and selected timbers - usually Radiata Pine or Douglas Fir. Each single piece of timber is graded and end-jointed to produce the length required. Multiple layers of timber (laminations) not exceeding 45mm thickness are bonded together using suitable adhesives to provide a variety of sectional beam sizes. By building up large, strong members from a number of thin laminations any size, shape and length can be manufactured. Glulam members are stronger weight-for-weight than other structural materials
