We are excited to announce the NEW Prolam Specifier is now Live!

New Look, Added features and Enhanced usability. Prolam Specifier is a fast, accurate post and beam specifying tool for any project, domestic or commercial.

If you had access to the previous version, this new version requires you to re-register. Once logged in you will have the option to access the old specifier to access previous jobs and summaries.

Three types of timber can be specified: Pine in H1.2, H3.2 and H5 for in-ground posts, Douglas Fir in H1.2, Macrocarpa as untreated. Automatically makes allowances for the weight of wall framing and treatments H1.2, H3.2 and H5 for in-ground posts.

Specify two structural grades in glulam: PL8 & PL12. Also, LVL15 can be specified, providing size options depending on the space available for the beam.

Caters for variances in roof height caused by product type, thickness of ceiling plasterboard or additions such as solar panels. You can also allow for the extra high wind zone recently added to the Building Code.

Software includes deflection and capacity ratios. Shift a point load to exactly where it will be on the beam and Prolam Pro will adjust the results to suit. Also defines the long-term deflection a beam will settle out at.
