Next Generation Glulam
Rosboro X-Beam is the most cost effective engineered wood beam in the industry.
Rosboro X-Beam has become the choice for a building industry increasingly focused on value engineering. Rosboro X-Beam is 25% to 35% less than LVL and up to 20% less than (LSL) laminated strand lumber so it is also a great choice for short door and window headers.
Rosboro X-Beam is Architectural appearance and is 3-1/2" and 5-1/2" wide so it matches standard framing. The greater widths relative to conventional 3-1/8" and 5-1/8" glulam equate to increased load-carrying capacity (up to 12% for 3-1/2" and 7% for 5-1/2").
Rosboro X-Beam is available in conventional depths of 1-1/2" increments as well as I-Joist compatible depths. Since many multi-family and single family homes are now framed with 2 x 10 and 2 x 12 joists, X-Beam is supplied in 9-1/4" and 11-1/4" depths to match dimension lumber joists.
X-Beam is manufactured with a slight 5,000-foot radius, for instance a 26' long beam would only have 1/4" of camber. Click here for more information on camber.
- I-Joist Compatible Depths: 9-1/2", 11-7/8", 14", 16" and 18".
- Conventional Depths: 6" through 24" in 1-1/2" increments.
- Matches 2 x 10 and 2 x 12 depths at 9-1/4" & 11-1/4".
X-Beam glulam columns are architectural appearance, surfaced four sides and all four edges are eased.

Before green became a buzzword, glulam was one of the industry's most resource-efficient choices. Our glulam today is an even better choice for today's progressive market:
- Made from a renewable resource - second- and third-generation forests.
- Resins made with EcoBind™ Resin Technology meet or exceed the most stringent global emissions standards. EcoBind Resin Technology is a licensed trademark of Momentive Specialty Chemicals.
