Glued Laminated Timber Engineering

Glulam The Glued Laminated Timber Association (GLTA) is described on the cover of its general brochure as ‘The voice of the glulam industry’, and its aim is to preach the gospel of the philosophy of glued laminated timber and the total timber engineering concept. The Association comprises principal members from manufacturing companies and also professional members. These latter are architects, engineers, lecturers, etc., who have an interest in timber engineering and in glulam in particular. ‘Glulam’ is the popular name for glued laminated timber whereby aesthetically attractive structural timber components of large cross-section and long lengths can be fabricated from small cross-section boards (laminates) in commercial sizes.
