Latest Wood Design Focus features mass timber topics

from FPS

This year's International Mass Timber Conference held March 28-30, in Portland, Oregon, featured many new products that are increasing the use of mass timber as a structural system. Some notable ones are featured in the latest issue of FPS' Wood Design Focus.

One article illustrates prefabrication and efficiency benefits of tall wood building construction. Additionally, it outlines how sensitivity to moisture can be alleviated if adequately protected during construction.

Another article discussed Dowel-Laminated Timber (DLT), a new mass timber product which can be used for floor, wall and roof structures. Panels are friction-fit together with hardwood dowels instead of nails and can be processed with machinery which allows for pre-integrated electrical conduit and other service runs.

To download the individual articles or to subscribe to Wood Design Focus, visit the FPS website. All past articles can be searched and downloaded from FPS' Knowledge Base. Downloads are free to FPS members. more
