Radiata Pine is a plantation softwood timber grown widely throughout Australia. It is a versatile timber used for a wide range of structural and decorative applications including glue-laminated beams or Glulam.
Radiata is relatively low in density and fairly soft, making for an easy timber to fix and work with standard tools. The heartwood is light brown to yellow; the sapwood white to pale yellow, but often indistinct, resulting in a wide variety of uses.
The grain is usually straight and knots in source material are fairly common. The result is a glulam beam with a consistent aesthetic appearance and sound structural properties.
