Glued Laminated Timber Beam Notched Incorrectly

Glued laminated timber (glulam) beams are highly engineered components manufactured from specially selected and positioned lumber laminations of varying strength and stiffness and installed where they will be highly stressed under design loads. Whenever making field modifications such as notching, tapering or drilling always follow the manufactures guidelines or consult with a structural engineer.
