Mass Timber Construction Products Overview
Mass timber is a category of construction technology products that have transformed what it means to build in a sustainable way. It is comprised of multiple solid section wood panels that are laminated together, which provide exceptional strength and stability. MTC is a strong, low-carbon alternative to concrete and steel.
CLT is a timber panel system gaining in popularity around the globe after being widely adopted in Europe. The material’s strength, dimensional stability, and rigidity allow it to be used in mid- and high-rise construction.
NLT is a century-old construction method that is undergoing a design renaissance. It can be found in historical buildings as well as in new projects, where its structural performance and design elegance come together to create inspiring spaces.
DLT is gaining traction for its ease of use with computer-controlled (CNC) machinery—such as lathes, routers, and mills—and its all-wood composition. DLT is similar to NLT but uses wood dowels to join boards instead of nails or screws.
Glulam is a structural engineered wood product commonly used for beams and columns in residential and commercial applications. Glulam allows for long spans of exposed framing, as well as attention-grabbing curvatures.
