C&C Introduces Newest Mass Timber: MLT

The latest innovation in mass timber starts with the smallest of timbers—much of it from stands devastated by forest fires and pine beetles—to create MLT, the Multi Laminated Timber.

The latest innovation in mass timber starts with the smallest of timbers—much of it from stands devastated by forest fires and pine beetles—to create MLT, the Multi Laminated Timber.
The process, pioneered by British Columbia’s C&C Wood Products, consists of building up the small pieces of timber through fingerjointing, edge-gluing and face lamination, resulting in laminated beams well suited for the construction of single-family, multi-family, or mid-rise office buildings.
The beams, which range from 4×4 to as large as 12x20x20 and are ANSI certified by TPI, meet traditional building standards for fire resistance, earthquake resistance, and wind resistance.
