Glulam beam tables are informative tables that help users determine how much of a uniformly distributed load a glued laminated timber beam can support. Factors such as the beam's size, span and materials determine the load specifications. The tables are meant to be used as guidelines in many industries.
The term "glued laminated timber" refers to a type of construction material that is made from a variety of artificial adhesives and traditional wood. It may sometimes be known as glulam, and it is highly advantageous because it is a highly durable and stiff construction material. Contractors use glulam for all types of buildings that require a heavy load bearing index.
