Glued timber

Glued timber is a natural product and a perfect alternative for steel and concrete. Glued timber beams are manufactured of natural timber, used for enablement, is rather strong and containing visual strength product, also being cheaper in comparison with steel and concrete.

Glued timber beams are manufactured by gluing planed timber of a high quality. During the gluing process water proof glue is being used under a high temperature and pressure.  After the complicated gluing process, a strong, stable, corrosion proof and undoubtedly more advantageous than steel or concrete, product is produced.

  • appliance of glued timber beams may be variable: they may be used as rafters, lintels, floor lap, columns and terraces, bridges; is also manufactured more easily than the majority of other constructions. Structural capability is infinite. Ever since the first time that glued timber beams were invented, they were used in constructing bridges, swimming pools, large open spaces, office blocks and sports hall as the primary structure;
  • glued timber beams may also be used in large interior spaces without interior supports up to 40 meter, however reasons of transportation usually limits such lengths;
  • glued timber is naturally durable and sturdy. Unlike other alternatives, beams resistance to fire provides safety and integrity in constructions. In addition, beams are chemically stable and are suitable for corrosive and humid environments.
