Glue Laminated Beams

Visible beauty, high strength and versatility

Glue Laminated Beams or Glulam from Dindas is a natural structural material which is lighter to handle than the alternatives, has intrinsic beauty, is machinable in most cases on site and is totally biodegradable.
 
A number of factors influence the choice of building materials, including cost, suitability and the design knowledge of those materials. Issues such as renewability of resources, energy efficiency and environmental friendliness are also becoming increasingly important and for environmentally conscious designers, glulam is a primary choice structural material.
 
There has been substantial research into glulam over the past three decades and it is now accepted world-wide as a structural material of known behavioural properties.
 
When exposed, a glulam structure adds warmth and beauty to a building and unlike most other structural building materials; glulam is commonly used as the finished product.
