Solid pieces of timber are generally still able to be sourced for large section timber beams and timber posts. However, the industry has seen an opportunity to also glue many smaller sections of timber together in a process known as ‘glue laminating’, making use of what was previously considered lower value material.
Our structural timber beams and posts include both solid and laminated products:
- Merbau Laminated (kwila): a South East Asian hardwood timber. Finger jointed and laminated, it is extremely strong, durable and attractive. Used in internal /external structures and stairs
- Western Red Cedar Solid: one of the few species where large section sizes can still be obtained relatively economically. Cedar is particularly attractive when used to create a special outdoor pergola
- Recycled Solid Posts and Beams : sourced from our eastern states partner, typically produced by re-machining old class 1 durable hardwood power poles
- Specialty Glulams: produced by finger jointing and laminating large beams comprising a number of timber species, from radiata pine (both treated and untreated) to Cypress Pine (Durabeams) and Victorian Ash.
