What are the thicknesses of the bolt and glulam and I can run our

One glulam is 6 3/4" wide and the other is 5 1/8" wide. I am using DFL glulams with 1/4" knife plates and 3/4" diameter bolts.
I get the following values (Cd=1):


5 1/8"   parallel   3480#
           perp       1670#


6 3/4"    parallel   4080#
            perp    1800#

All these values are higher than using twice the values in the NDS (PL1 /4" with 2 1/2" and 3" side members).
