We are the only CE certified UK glulam manufacturer. Every piece of glue laminated timber that we manufacture is sampled and tested to ensure its quality is consistent and that its structural integrity is guaranteed to a level specified for each project.

Buckland Timber carries CE certification for the manufacture of structural glue-laminated timber. We have detailed processes and procedures in place to ensure that all beams manufactured by us achieve the required standards. Any structural material supplied to the construction industry is required to have CE certification.

The Timber Research Development Association (TRADA) assess our manufacture and testing procedures via twice-yearly audits to verify that we are conforming to our Declaration of Performance (DoP).

The DoP provides information on the performance of our products and records the standards to which they are manufactured (BS EN 14080).
