GluLams have consistent dimensions, are straighter and available in longer lengths (up to 40’) than solid sawn members. GluLams are also resistant to twisting, splitting and checking.
Kiln Dried CCA lumber which allows finished post to weigh approx. 60% of similar sized treated solid sawn member.
Structural adhesives mean nails and lags hold without splitting plys as with nail laminated columns, also no nails or plates to damage saws. Untreated tops reduce exposure to CCA and allow use of standard fasteners. (non-corrosive)
GluLams are competitive priced and do not carry the high premiums for longer lengths as solid sawn members.

“Barrier protection will substantially increase the lifespan of any utility pole by protecting it from fungal & insect attack far more effectively than a preservative treatment alone can achieve while preventing preservatives from leaching into the environment.”
“Barrier systems are designed to prevent the invasion of wood-destroying fungi and termites which typically occurs as the preservative migrates from the wood leaving it vulnerable to attack.”
