Why should I use glulam instead of solid timber?

Because glulam is manufactured from selected grade, kiln dried material it is stronger and more stable than a solid timber beam of the same section. The tendency of large section solid timber to twist, split and shrink is greatly minimised in glulam.

A glulam beam can reduce the overall section of members up to 40% compared to unseasoned timber.
