Floor Systems

SmartLam CLT provides an excellent solution for structural floor systems. CLT’s solid wood construction boasts a high strength to weight ratio, resulting in a superior structural floor system under both compressive and tension stress and extreme static load-carrying capacity.

Our CLT panels are meticulously manufactured to provide excellent strength, stiffness, vibration, and spanning properties. Precision prefabrication of long and wide floor panels allows for quick and simple on site installation. Laboratory tested to achieve a 2-hour fire rating along with our engineered topping solution to achieve STC ratings from 50 to 60, SmartLam CLT is the perfect construction material for structural floor systems.


Wall Systems

SmartLam’s digitally designed and fabricated CLT wall panels minimize construction time and labor yet maximize precision, accuracy, and durability. The simplicity and accuracy makes the use of CLT wall components a cost effective and time saving building material, while virtually eliminating construction errors.

Our CLT panels arrive on site with pre-cut openings for doors, windows, mechanical apertures, panel to panel profiles as well as rake and plumb cuts as designed. This tightly fitted wall systems can then be insulated to provide the highest level of energy-efficiency.

Superior load-carrying characteristics, including lateral stability against wind and seismic forces, a laboratory tested 2-hour fire rating, and engineered acoustic performance systems, make SmartLam CLT the smart choice for any type of structure.


Roof Systems

SmartLam CLT structural roof systems allow architects, engineers, and contractors to create buildings with long, open, and attractive expanses that stretch the limits of building design. A unique advantage of CLT is its essential ability to create a warm and welcoming interior space that cannot be realized using any other material. CLT is made entirely from wood; warm, attractive, & natural. Wood is the only renewable building material and provides for a healthy indoor and outdoor environment.

CLT roof panels are considerably lighter and thinner than similarly performing concrete and steel alternatives. Cantilevers, projections, dramatic overhangs and more are all possible with naturally robust and resilient CLT. Additionally, CLT roof panels offer a seamless platform to create high performance thermal and acoustical systems. Combine all of this with safe, simple, and speedy installation, CLT is the perfect structural roof system.


Elevator Shafts

SmartLam has created an innovative solution to traditional elevator-stairwell shaft construction. The use of CLT modules for shaft construction significantly reduces construction time, costs, labor, and complications associated with typical masonry installation. A crew of 5 workers can set a CLT shaft 5 stories high in just 5 hours!

Compare this to a masonry structure that devours 4 weeks of your construction schedule, a crew of ten or more people, weather exposure and delays, multiple inspections, scaffolding inside and out, and a wet muddy mess on your job site.

SmartLam CLT shaft modules are laboratory tested to achieve a 2-hour fire rating with no additional sheetrock layers required.  A simple connection and alignment system anchors the CLT shaft to the foundation. A system of robust fasteners combined with a simple staggered joint system allow for quick and solid construction as well as vertical scaling for shafts over 3 stories.

Imagine gaining weeks on your construction schedule, all while reducing your project cost, labor footprint, and carbon footprint! SmartLam CLT; while we manufacture CLT, what we really sell is time!
