Mass timber Academy - Dowel & Nail Laminated Timber

29 Oct 2020

Non-glued timber systems such as dowel laminated timber and nail laminated timber are less well known or used  than other mass timber products, but nevertheless offer a range of low technology manufacturing possibilities as well as health and circular economy benefits. Whether prefabricated in a factory or as part of a localised bespoke manufacturing process, the similarities and differences between dowel and nail laminating techniques each require a fundamental understanding of the properties of the timber species involved.
