NLT Design and Construction Guide

NLT is created by placing dimension lumber on edge and mechanically fastening the individual laminations together with nails or screws. Nominal 2x, 3x and 4x thicknesses and 4-inch to 12-inch widths are typically used to create NLT panels. The addition of plywood or oriented strand board sheathing on one face of the panel provides in-plane shear capacity, allowing NLT to be used as a shear wall or structural diaphragm.
