Mass timber uses state-of-the-art technology to glue, nail or dowel wood products together in layers. The results are large structural panels, posts and beams. These exceptionally strong and versatile products are known as mass timber.
Mass timber products include:
- Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT)
- Dowel-Laminated Timber (DLT)
- Glue-Laminated Timber (glulam)
- Nail-Laminated Timber (NLT)
- Laminated Stand Lumber (LSL)
- Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL)
- Parallel Strand Lumber (PSL)
- Mass Plywood Panel (MPP)
