Mass Timber - an introduction to solid laminate timber systems

  The past two decades have witnessed an extraordinary upsurge in the use of mass timber products and systems in construction - a global phenomenon driven by greater emphasis on the sustainable use of renewable resources and by significant technological developments in the manufacture of solid laminate timber systems. The pace of this technological advance is such that the emergence of many of these new products and systems has not always been matched by the publication of independent, objective technical information on their physical properties or guidance for their use.

Mass Timber - an introduction to Solid Laminate Timber Systems is designed to fill this gap by offering full descriptions of the manufacture and applications of the various glued and non-glued systems as well as comparative data on their technical characteristics. For those new to the use of solid laminate timber systems, this publication provides a clear and informative guide to the various products available; for those more familiar with these technologies, Mass Timber - an introduction to Solid Laminate Timber Systems offers evidence-based knowledge on their use and performance.
