WHY GLULAM

Glulam is the most environmentally friendly product for long-span structural use. As well as being very efficient to produce, the energy required to produce a glue-laminated beam from the log is only a fraction of the energy required to produce steel or concrete – it can also be reused or recycled. Glulam has superior earthquake resilience, withstands aggressive environments, and is more predictable in a fire than any other structural construction material….

CONNECTION & MACHINING DETAILS

Careful detailing of connections is a critical part of any Glulam design. As well as transferring the loads they must be detailed to make allowance for natural characteristics of the material such as the effects of changes in moisture content. From your design detail drawings, we can machine our Glulam for connection brackets/plates such as shaped ends with slotting or drilling, ready for on-site assembly.

// Sustainable

As well as offering unique beauty, excellent value for money, and unparalleled renewability, using wood from sustainably managed forests actually reduces carbon dioxide emissions, as the carbon dioxide stored by the forest and in the timber product outweighs any carbon dioxide created during the production of the product. Each tonne of timber used instead of other building materials (like steel or brick and concrete block) saves around a tonne of carbon dioxide.
AJ Laminated Beams is proud to be PEFC certificated, purchasing our products from only well-managed sustainable forests. We also use our off-cuts to craft other products such as furniture, lighting, planters, and anything else we can think of. We also donate our off-cuts to West Suffolk College and local schools for the use of their students. Anything we have left after that is used to heat our workshop during the winter months or turned into kindling.
