new plant will be designed and built with a variety of
mass timber and engineered wood products, including DLT, NLT, LSL (laminated strand lumber) and
Glulam. The shop has been designed as a demountable structure, with modular wall and roof panels to
allow for future expansion, the company added.
StructureCraft manufactures and sources mass
timber products including DLT, CLT, NLT, and
Glulam as well as steel components such as connections, cables, and castings.
Also known under the name dübelholz, DLT has
been manufactured commercially in Europe for a
number of years. ;
Dowel laminated timber (DLT) can be used for floor, wall,
and roof structures. Instead of using glue, nails or other
metal fasteners, DLT wood panels use hardwood dowels to
friction fit pre-milled boards together on edge.
An architect’s rendering shows the plant that is expected to be completed in August using DLT construction.
