New dowel laminated timber product to be used for structural applications
http://journalofcommerce.com/ Mar 27, 2017
StructureCraft Builders Corporation is building a 50,000-square-foot, all-wood facility in Abbotsford, B.C. to manufacture dowel laminated timber (DLT). DLT is made entirely from softwood and hardwood with no metal, glue or plastic….Today there are about 20 DLT manufacturers in Europe, most of them in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. DLT may be the most recent mass timber product, but it joins many others already on the market. Some of them are nail laminated timber (NLT), cross laminated timber (CLT), glue laminated timber (GLT), laminated veneer lumber and laminated strand lumber.
