Product presentation

Glulam is composed of small wood laminations bonded together in parallel using structural adhesives.

 

Wood-based construction is more in the vanguard than ever thanks to its appeal as an ecological and sustainable solution. There is no better green choice than Nordic Lam for any sustainable building project.

Advantages

An indisputable advantage of Nordic Lam is that it can be used to manufacture large-size components and special shapes not found elsewhere in the market.

 

It also features superior mechanical resistance compared to solid sawn.

 

With glulam’s superior strength, large-scale and extra-long-span structures become feasible and yield astonishing and complex architectural results that don’t break the bank!

 

A natural choice for sustainable construction, glued-laminated timber is an ideal, ecologically sound alternative destined to replace concrete and steel. Glued-laminated timber is unparalleled as a carbon sink due to its volume and composition.
