glu-lam laminations
Explanation:
A Leimbinder is a glue-laminated beam. I believe these are the laminations used to make glu-lam beams.

Glue laminated timber beams are load bearing structural members for roofs, floors or other construction situations e.g. bridges, posts etc. Glulam is an engineered product using stress rated, seasoned and selected timbers - usually radiata pine or Douglas fir. Each single piece of timber is graded and end jointed to produce the length required. Multiple layers of timber - laminations - not exceeding 45mm thickness are bonded together with suitable adhesives to provide a variety of sectional beam sizes. By building up large, strong members from a number of thin laminations, any size, shape and length of member can be manufactured. Glulam members are stronger weight for weight than other structural materials.
