Wood types for glulam

Different types of wood are used in the production of glulam. The most common types are Norway spruce, silver fir, Scots pine, Douglas fir, hemlock and Corsican and European larch. According to EN 14080:2013-09, para. 5.5.2, other softwoods are also permitted but not in common use.

Spruce is the standard wood species for glulam. However, other types of wood can also be used. Please note, however, that delivery times are longer for wood species other than spruce. It is therefore advisable to enquire and order in good time if a different type of wood is required.

It should be noted that glued laminated wood products may only consist of one wood species in total. An exception is spruce and silver fir, which may be treated as one wood species.

The kiln-dried wooden boards are joined together by finger-jointing to form long lamellas. Discover our wide range of glulam products.
