MATERIALS OF THE FUTURE
glulam (Glued Laminated Timber)
WHAT IS GLULAM?
Glulam is a stress-rated engineered timber product composed of wood laminations, or "lamellae," bonded together with strong, waterproof adhesives They are also known as laminated beams.
One of Glulam's most significant advantages is that it can be manufactured in a wide range of shapes, sizes, and configurations for use in various structures.
Niuform laminated beams are unique in the market. A special surface finish, small knots, and exceptional warmth are some of the characteristics Glulam is known for.
Glulam solutions can create impressive results, such as vaulted ceilings and other designs in high, open spaces. They are the ideal structural choice in situations where strength and durability are a concern.
Through industrial adhesives and multiple layers of wood, Glulam is highly resistant to chemicals, moisture, warping, and/or twisting.
Glulam can be used in many different ways: for beams, pillars, pergolas, ceilings, hallways, stairs, panels, and veneer, among many others.
Glulam allows you to create flawless pieces that you can work with effectively and efficiently.
With Glulam, you can achieve a solid, compact, and structurally stable structure.Descargar ficha técnica
THE ADVANTAGES OF NIUFORM LAMINATED BEAMS (GLULAM)
Laminated beams (or Glulam) are a stress-rated engineered timber product composed of wood laminations, or "lamellae," bonded together with strong, waterproof adhesives. One of the significant advantages of Glulam is that it is versatile, durable, and can be manufactured in a wide range of shapes, sizes, and configurations for application in different projects and structures.
CERTIFIED FIBER: We use premium Radiata Pine fiber which is certified by FSC® and sustainably managed throughout its development.
MODELING: Our 3D modeling software is linked with BIM technology and 5-axis robotics to ensure that each cut is made with the highest precision.
REDUCED ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT: Niuform laminated beams store carbon and produce fewer greenhouse gas emissions throughout their manufacturing process.
SUPERIOR APPEARANCE: A variety of finishes are available for Glulam. We also apply in-plant coatings to ensure optimal protection, high durability, and a beautiful appearance for exposed parts.
PROTECTION: We have the necessary technology to treat our beams, ensuring durability over time.
Niuform's laminated beams are created with wood from CMPC forests, which are FSC® and CERTFOR-PEFC™ certified, guaranteeing strict responsible forest management. Additionally, according to the European standard UNE-EN 14080, the products have been tested and can have structural certification C16-C24 and certification rule NCH 2148, depending on our customer's requirements.
