Hello
Expert:  StructuralEng replied 8 months ago.
I can provide you with a glulam that meets or exceeds the strength/stiffness of that WF, but it will be a much bigger beam.
Expert:  StructuralEng replied 8 months ago.
6.75" x 19.5" if all load is live load. 6.75" x 21" if you have some dead load on it
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
That is ok width of glutamate can be any size, height needs to stay at 16 inches
Expert:  StructuralEng replied 8 months ago.
Then it would need to be at least 12" wide to be limited to 16" depth
