Short description:An engineered wood product composed of individual pieces of dimensional lumber that are end-jointed and bonded together to create laminations. These laminations are stacked and glued to form either a straight or curved beam. The beams are manufactured with the strongest laminations on the bottom and top, where maximum tension and compression stresses occur thus optimizing the structural values of wood.
