What is camber?
Camber is a "crown" purposely built into a glulam at the time of manufacture. It is most often desired in long span applications to counteract dead load deflection. Camber does not affect the strength of the beam. Residential stock beams are normally made with either a 5000' radius or zero camber, while other engineered wood products are zero camber. Most residential spans are less than 24', and the camber derived from a 5000' radius falls inside industry accepted manufacturing tolerances for zero camber beams. Stock glulam beams are increasingly popular because they contribute to a "flat" framing system without humps. The slight radius also reduces deflection or sag on longer spans.
How long is the lead time for glulam beams?
Rosboro’s flagship glulam is the stock X-Beam®, and our distribution partners keep the most commonly used sizes of X-Beam® in inventory. This means you can typically get your beams delivered the same or next-day. For more unique beams, our Western Structures division can custom manufacture and ship as quickly as one week from time of order.
