Engineered BeamS

 

 
McNamara Frame & Truss specialise in engineered timber beams to suite your specifications and requirements. We supply timber engineered beams through our partnerships with Hyne Timber, Boral Timber, Newcastle Timber Trading and Meyer Timber. Timber engineered beams can be used in place of structural steel beams depending upon the situation. Timber engineered beams are strong but lighter than an equivalent structural steel beam, therefore allowing for easier handling onsite.

It’s Strong

 
There are a many advantages to choosing Timber Engineered Beams over structural steel beams. The main advantage is, timber is a lot lighter than steel which makes timber easier to handle on site. Glulam and LVL beams can span large distances. The manufacturing process makes them are inherently strong.

Durability

 
LVL and Glulam beams can be produced in either H2 or H3 treated timber. This enables Timber Engineered Beams to be used in a variety of situations. The manufacturing process of cross laminating produces beams that are not only strong but also they are less prone to warping or shrinking. This fact alone can save you time and money on site.

If you are managing a construction project, one challenge you face is handling heavy items onsite. While structural steel is a reliable material for many situations, it is heavy and bulky to handle onsite often requiring a crane to move it into place safely. Timber Engineered Beams are durable, like steel, but light weight thus making them easier to handle onsite. This can result in saving both time and money onsite.
