What type of quality assurance comes with glulam beams?
All glulam available in New Zealand must be manufactured to comply with the joint Australian and New Zealand standard.
Licensed manufacturers are regularly inspected by the NZ Timber Certification
Board and issued with an individual license number. This certifies that the manufacturer’s production system complies with the detailed requirements of AS/NZS 1328 – Glue Laminated Structural Timber.
Audits are also carried out by Bureau Veritas to ensure compliance and quality control procedures and records are in place.
To ensure you have a quality product check that your supplier has a current license number.
