Sustainable Sources

Glulam is manufactured using Pinus Elliotti (slash pine) from sustainable sources.

Extra Strong

Lumberworx Glulam GL17c is strong enough to replace flitch beams or steel in most circumstances. Builders are able to cut these using standard tools eliminating the need for the amendments you would require with steel products.

H1.2 Treatment

Glulam is treated to H1.2 meeting the strict New Zealand building codes.

Glulam Description

Glue laminated beams (Glulam) are solid wood members manufactured by bonding multiple pieces with proven adhesives to form a larger structural member. Glulam is more uniform and offers improved structural performance over sawn timber.

Lumberworx distributes GL17c manufactured by Warrnambool Timber Industries. This product is manufactured from slash pine (pinus elliotti) with high stiffness and with the standard radius camber (see camber details below).

Warrnambool Timber Industries (WTI) was established in 1988 and with a forward vision and modern facilities has built a solid reputation for quality and professionalism that sees their products distributed throughout Australia and exported to international markets.

The renowned natural strength of timber is enhanced by the glue laminating process, ensuring GL17c is comparatively lightweight and ideal for long span / high load applications. GL17c is ideal for lintels over large window and door openings, garage openings or roof beams where spans over large spaces are required.
