Rafter Beams

Product Description

Rafter beams are an ideal application for glulaminated timber.

Lightweight, strong and aesthetically pleasing, laminated timber is far superior to solid timber, with stability and consistent structural properties key benefits.  Laminated timber beams are also a simple method of construction, requiring no specialist building skills, unlike steel. Standard dimensions are typically 100mm to 900mm in depth and 42mm-270mm in thickness; however larger dimensions are readily achievable, due to the flexibility of the manufacturing process. The length range available is generally only limited by transport – beams up to 27m are quite possible. Beam strength grades available – GL8, GL10 and GL12. Typical uses range from pergola rafters right up to large clearspan warehouses and sheds.
