Glued laminated timber (also called “Glulam”) according to DIN EN 14080 is a widely used and broadly applicable product. It has been used in timber construction for over a century and is widely appreciated for its high dimensional stability and high quality. Glued laminated timber consists of at least two boards, glued together and finger-jointed in longitudinal direction. It differs from glued solid timber insofar that individual boards do not exceed strengths of 45 mm. Additionally, it can be produced in practically limitless dimensions, reaching heights of several meters and spans of 30 meters and more.
