Strength, Flexibility, and Quality!
Also called “Glu-Lams” or “Glu-Lam Posts”, these glue-laminated posts are stress-rated engineered wood beams composed of wood laminations, or “lams”, that are bonded together with durable, moisture-resistant adhesives. They provide a distinct combination of strength, flexibility, and quality that makes them the natural selection for use in commercial construction.
Pole Building Supplies offers laminated posts as an upgrade for buildings under 12’ and are standard in buildings taller than 12’. We have different size laminated posts available to meet your building design and construction preferences. Choose from 3 ply, 4 ply and up, glue-laminated posts. They are also all available with a full range of post protector options.
The grain of the laminations runs parallel to the length of the member. Laminated posts are engineered and deliver strength, beauty, and reliability. Pound for pound, they are stronger than steel and has greater strength and stiffness than comparably sized dimensional lumber.
