Main Profile

Serving the mass timber market since 2012, SmartLam NA offers our customers true hands-on experience with CLT and Glulam building projects. Our cross section of project experience covers a broad range of architectural CLT projects from residential, through commercial, institutional, industrial, and high-rise construction. From concept to close-out our 120 plus team specializes in all aspects of developing and delivering your mass timber project. With production facilities in Montana and Alabama we are strategically positioned to meet the building needs of our customers throughout North America and the only CLT producer to provide the full range of species included in the PRG 320 standards. As pioneers in the North American Cross Laminated Timber market, SmartLam NA led the way in CLT product testing and certifications for the industry including fire, wind, and seismic resistance and durability. Our executive team represents decades of business and industry expertise in timber, forestry, construction and mass timber fabrication in North America. As The Mass Timber Solutions Company, we look forward to working with you.

Products & Services

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.

Our glulam is manufactured for high-strength beam, header and column applications. Available in multiple stress grades, sizes and appearance classifications, SmartLam glulam is APA certified for use in building construction. Products bearing the APA trademark stamp signify conformance with ANSI A190.1, American National Standard for Structural Glued Laminated Timber and have undergone rigorous quality control testing to ensure code requirements have been met. All glulam products are currently manufactured using locally sourced Southern Pine.

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.

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 make 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.
