Glulam - what is it?

Glulam is a wood from Scandinavian sustainable forests. The tree is usually spruce, though can sometimes be redwood or Siberian larch.

By the turn of the last century, a German structural design engineer called Otto Hetzer came up with a patent described as 'a bent structural component of timber for building applications'.

Scandinavian forests are some of the best managed in the world, where reforestation and environmental considerations are given high priority.

The manufacture, distribution and treatment of glulam all consume less energy than any other building materials. Glulam is a long-lasting material that's easy to work with.
