Highlighting Canadian innovation and leadership, the Nail-laminated Timber (NLT) Guide is a source of inspiration and a valued resource for the building community as it is the only comprehensive NLT resource available that combines design, construction, and fabrication expertise from built projects into an easy to use reference.
Consistent with current codes and standards, the guide focuses on considerations for floor and roof systems pertaining to Canadian construction practice and standards. Included in the code through provisions for combustible construction and heavy timber, NLT can be incorporated into a project without the need for an alternative solution application.
NLT offers design flexibility and is readily accessible across the country thanks to the availability of raw materials and ease of fabrication. It is a cost-effective solution allowing projects to leverage the economic and environmental benefits of mass timber construction.
