Glue-laminated timber or glulam is a structurally engineered wood product made by bonding several individual pieces of timber together with resilient, moisture-resistant structural adhesives. The lumber used to manufacture glulam is of a specific grade and is purchased directly from lumber mills. It is produced through the processes of drying, gluing, inspection, sawing, and lining. Glulam is a versatile material that offers high resistance and stiffness in a corrosive environment and provides thermal insulation. Nowadays, it is widely available in a wide range of sizes and colors. As a result, it finds application in household framing, industrial construction, and architecture across residential and commercial projects.
