Glued laminated timber, also called glulam timber, is a type of structural timber product composed of several layers of dimensioned timber glued together.
By laminating several smaller pieces of timber, a single large, strong, structural member is manufactured from smaller pieces.
Glulam timber is typically manufactured using coniferous wood.
Glulam timber is fabricated using individual pieces of high-strength, kiln-dried lumber, laminated together under pressure to form large timbers that retain the traditional beauty of wood along with engineered strength and extraordinary fire resistance, thermal efficiency, and dimensional stability.
Benefits of house made of glulam timber:
Short period of construction
Glued profiled beam virtually no shrinkage
On walls of the house there will be no cracks or other signs of deformations even in some years
The material is treated with a special solution; as a result, the house becomes fire-resistant.
There is no need to construct a complex foundation.
Glulam timber has high rot resistance.
The extremely low heat conductivity ensures a comfortable microclimate indoors: in the summer it is cool, in winter it is warm and comfortable.
Regulation of moisture in the wooden house is provided in a natural way: excess moisture is absorbed by the wood, dry air is humidified by moisture contained in the walls.
The timber is 50% stronger than ordinary wood. Bearing walls of the house are suitable for heavy-duty applications. It is very important at constructing roofs, large multistoried houses and complex architectural forms.
Russian Forest ltd pays special attention to the quality of timber.
We build from the best wood from Siberia (Angara pine, Siberian cedar, Siberian larch). Traditionally this is the most environmentally friendly, high-quality and most durable wood. Choosing its best samples, we obtain the finished product of the highest quality.
