Dimensional Stability: 24F Glulam
is a laminated composite product of high-strength lumber. This
randomizes any natural defect so there is greater beam strength
and a higher degree of reliability. There is also less likelihood
of warping, twisting, checking, cupping or shrinking.
Moisture Control: 24F Glulam consistently
averages 12% moisture, which is near equilibrium moisture content.
Building Code Evaluations: Adopted
under all major material building codes.
Fire Performance: 24F Glulam falls
into the building code category of heavy timber, and therefore
has excellent fire performance.
Quality Assurance: 24F Glulam is
manufactured in accordance with ANSI/APA A190.1-1992 (Structural
Glued Laminated Timber). Plant implemented Total Quality Management, statistical process control procedures and APA – The Engineered Wood Association as our quality assurance program ensure consistent quality and performance in every 24F Glulam.
