Glulam is glued laminated timber, also abbreviated as glulam, is a type of structural engineered wood timber product constituted by layers of dimensional lumber bonded together with durable, moisture-resistant structural adhesives. In US, the material made of wood providing the laminations is termed laminating stock or lamstock.

By laminating a number of smaller pieces of glulam lumber, a single large, strong, structural member is manufactured from smaller pieces. These structural members are used as vertical columns, horizontal beams, and arches, header, girder, rafter, purlin and ridge beam in wood frame house.

Glulam optimizes the structural values of wood. Because of their composition, large glulam members can be manufactured from a variety of smaller trees harvested from second-growth forests and plantations.

Glulam beam depth are typically are 7 1/4 inches (184mm), 9 inches, 9 1/4 inches (235mm), 9 1/2 inches (241mm), 11 1/4 inches (286mm), 11 7/8 inches (302mm), 14 inches (356mm), 16 inches (406mm), 18 inches (457mm), 18 3/4 inches (476mm), 20 inches (508mm) and 23 7/8 inches (606mm).

Typical stock beam widths used in residential construction include :- 3-1/8, 3-1/2, 5-1/8, 5-1/2, 6-3/4 inches and 7 inches. For non-residential applications, where long spans, unusually heavy loads, or other circumstances control design, custom members are typically specified.

In this article we know about how much does a Glulam beam weight per linear foot or per cubic foot or per board foot or per meter that will help you in better understanding and to figure out or estimate of Glulam beam size and their depth and weight.

**How much does a Glulam beam weight**

Weight of Glulam beam measured in four units:- 1) weight per cubic feet (lbs/ ft3), 2) weight per linear foot (lbs/ ft), 3) weight per board foot (FBM) and 4) weight per linear meter.

The cubic foot is a unit of measurement for the volume of lumber in the United States and Canada. It equals the volume of a one-foot length of a wood, one foot wide and one foot thick. Cubic foot can be abbreviated as cu. ft.

The linear foot is a unit of measurement for the volume of lumber in the United States and Canada. It equals the length of a one-foot of wood. Linear foot can be abbreviated as (lbs/ ft).

The board foot or board-foot is a unit of measurement for the volume of lumber in the United States and Canada. It equals the volume of a one-foot length of a board, one foot wide and one inch thick. Board foot can be abbreviated as FBM, BDFT, or BF.

**How much does a Glulam beam weight**:- high strength structural engineered wood or Glued Laminated timber or lumber or Glulam beam can weigh about 36 pounds per cubic foot or 3 pounds per board foot and their weight per linear foot and per linear meter are different for different size of Glulam beam.

**Glulam beam weight per cubic foot**:- high strength structural engineered wood or Glued Laminated timber or lumber Glulam beam can weight around 36 pounds per cubic foot which is approximately equal as 3 pounds per board foot. One cubic foot is the volume of a one-foot length of a wood, one foot wide and one foot thick.

**Glulam beam weight per board foot**:- high strength structural engineered wood or Glued Laminated timber or lumber Glulam beam can weight around 3 pounds per board foot which is approximately equal as 41 pounds per cubic foot. One board foot is the volume of a one-foot length of a wood, one foot wide and one inch thick.

**Glulam beam weight per meter-** high strength structural engineered wood or Glued Laminated timber or lumber Glulam beam can weight around 576 kgs per cubic meter which is approximately equal as 36 pounds per cubic foot. One cubic meter is the volume of a one-meter length of a wood, one meter wide and one meter thick.

**Glulam beam weight per foot**:- a 3- 1/2″ × 10″ size of Glued Laminated timber or Glulam beam can weight around 8.75 pounds per linear foot and a 3- 1/2″ × 12″ size can 10.5 lbs. One linear foot is the equal of a one-foot length of a wood.

**Conclusion**:-

A Laminated timber or Glulam beam can weight about 36 pounds per cubic foot or 3 pounds per board foot or 576 kg/m3.
