In order to maintain the best condition of manufactured glulam proper storage and handling is important.
Beams should be stacked well clear of the ground and protected from the elements. Stacks of beams should be covered with a weatherproof material ensuring adequate ventilation to prevent condensation building up.
Avoid black polythene, as this will make the beams sweat.
If possible, fillet stack beams to allow air circulation.
