Timber Canopies

TAURUS Glulam Structures

return to Fabric Canopies

Used increasingly as a natural alternative to steel, glulam is a structurally engineered timber product manufactured by bonding layers of softwood together. This produces sections with exceptional strength suitable for long spans, combined with the undeniable aesthetic appeal of timber. TAURUS Glulam structures consist of feature glulam posts and rafters along with unobtrusive steel eaves beams and roof purlins.

The standard roof specification for TAURUS Glulam canopies and walkways is an advanced multiwall polycarbonate providing a bright atmosphere without glare, with our proven aluminium glazing system ensuring a reliable and easy to maintain roof cover for the long term. The 15-year roof covering warranties provide long term peace of mind, with aftercare packages available for periodic inspection and cleaning.

The fabric roof option on TAURUS Glulam Structures combines the beauty of the timber with the distinctive elegant form of tensile membranes. The fabric membrane translucency provides diffused, naturally lit spaces, while at night, artificial lighting can be used to create an ambient exterior luminescence. The PVC-based architectural fabrics have a super smooth PVDF self-cleaning outer layer and are covered by a manufacturer-backed warranty for up to 15 years depending on specification.

The versatility of TAURUS Glulam canopies and walkways can be further enhanced with the addition of glass, polycarbonate or mesh fabric sides along with lighting and heaters.
