Multiple members increase strength over solid sawn members. Laboratory tested design values.
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 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 competitively priced and do not carry the high premiums for longer lengths as solid sawn members.
Provides superior protection from the harmful effects of:
- Soil Nutrients
- Rot & Decay
- Soil Organisms
- Corrosive Soil Agents
Extends the service life and enhances the performance of wooden posts.
Not only does GREEN POST function as a barrier to prevent decay, it also prevents the preservative chemicals in treated posts from entering the soil.
EXCLUSIVE NOTCH DESIGN
Provides superior resistance to wind uplift. (Up to four times the uplift resistance as rebar or blocking methods.)
Eliminates the need to fabricate the typical anchoring devices on the jobsite.
MANY POSSIBLE APPLICATIONS
- Post Frame Buildings
- Deck Posts
- Fence Posts
Perma-Columns are five foot precast concrete columns that keep wood out of the ground, ensuring your building’s foundation will never rot. They are the first product to combine the economy of post-frame construction with the durability of a concrete foundation. Simple installation. No waiting on concrete trucks. No treated wood in the ground.
STEEL ROOFING & SIDING
True 28-gauge steel (before paint) with heavy-duty metallic coating is encased in abrasion-busting primer and siliconized modified polyester topcoat to deliver enduring corrosion resistance and longer life. Wider blanks, deeper minor rib heights create a stronger, more durable panel.
