Products & Services

Cross-Laminated Timber – CLT
Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) is prefabricated engineered wood product that consists of either 3, 5, or 7 layers of dimensional lumber, with each layer oriented 90 degrees to the previous layer bonded using structural adhesives to form large-scale panels. DR Johnson manufactures CLT panels up to 10′-0′ wide and 41′-6″ in length. CLT allows flexibility in construction and design and can be a direct replacement to steel or concrete.

Glued Laminated Beam – GLB
Glued laminated beams (GLB) are stress-rated engineered wood beams composed of wood laminations that are bonded together with a structural adhesive. All of the “lams” are laid parallel to one another and pressed together to produce a beam which can be a direct replacement of steel or concrete. Glulam Beams/ Columns can be used as the structural frame for Mass Timber Construction Applications. When combined with CLT Panels, an entire structure can be built out of wood- including high rise multi-use buildings, schools & multi-family housing complexes.
