Timber used for laminating is carefully selected for production and graded according to strict Prowood specifications. All timber stock is kiln dried, to 13% average moisture content, to ensure efficient bonding in the gluing operations.
The laminations are machine finger jointed if required, with glue being cured by state of the art European press systems and controlled temperature. Prolam PL8 Glulam products are available in visual and non-visual utility grades. Pre-cambered beams are available on request.
Prolam PL8 beams are manufactured to the wide range of sizes specified by the Prolam Pro online specifier which are manufactured to AS/NZS 1328, and are designed to comply with B1, B2, C and F2 of the NZ building code.
