Structural timber rating confusion...

Hi team,

We are finally about to embark on the next stage of our renovations & I need to order some F14 100x100mm hardwood posts. Fair enough…
What I ran across though has me somewhat perplexed… timber with a structural GL rating.

Now I know GL stands for glue laminated but I cannot find a comparative table that tells you what GL rating is equivalent to which F rating.
Anyone have any knowledge of this area?
I don’t have a problem with using GL timber, I just need to make sure it has the right structural rating.
