Straight beams

Saligna and Pine straight beams can be made to order within two weeks. Our glulam is made to exactly the same rigorous production standards as imported glulam.

If you have an urgent requirement please contact us as we may be able to manufacture and deliver to shorter lead times depending on availability and timber stock.

Here we stock timber to make the following finished beam widths: 90, 115, 140, 160 and 180mm. Other widths cans be produced up to 250mm. The depth of beam depends on the number of laminations. Each lamination is 45mm thick, and we can make beams from four laminations (4×45=180mm deep) to forty laminations (1800mm deep).
