Glulam

High specification glued laminated timber specially sized to integrate seamlessly with the JJI-Joist product range

Glulam beams 

As a high specification engineered timber beam, with excellent strength, stiffness and dimensional stability, glulam offers many design and performance benefits.

We can supply glulam in custom section sizes that are chosen to match our JJI-Joist product range depths, in three standard thicknesses of 38, 45 and 90mm. Two grades are available to allow the designer to optimise the design. JJ-Beam is a high specification product, ideal for use as trimmers, beams, lintels etc. where loading and or spans are large. JJ-Rim is a lower specification product ideal for use as rim material in timber frame structures.

We are also able to supply standard European sizes and grades of Glulam in both visual and non-visual finishes for projects where design and specification has already been finalised. Please contact us for more information.

  • Consistent – quality assured production process.
  • Stable - Good dimensional stability and consistent sizing.
  • Reliable - Elimination of the drying splits/shakes common in solid timber.
  • Long - available in 12m lengths.
  • Straight - No twist even with large sections and longer lengths.
