Structural Mass Timber Fastening Design Guide
In order to make the most of Cross Laminated Timber (CLT), the right connections are essential. New forms of mass timber construction are pushing demand for new fastening technology. Through easy-to-read tables, this guide will show you why self-tapping screws are an ideal companion to CLT and modern engineered timber construction. The Structural Mass Timber Fastening Design Guide has tabulated design values for common CLT screw connections such as surface spline joints, half-lap joints, panel to panel, panel to beam, post to beam, ledger to wall, floor to wall, Structural Insulated Panel (SIP) roof fastening and screwed steel to wood connections.
