Glue Laminated Timber (Glulam)
Glue Laminated Timber (Glulam) is composed of individual wood laminations (dimension lumber), specifically selected and positioned based on their performance characteristics, and then bonded together with durable, moisture-resistant adhesives. The grain of all laminations runs parallel with the length of the member. Glulam can be used in horizontal applications as a beam, or vertically as a column. Glulam has excellent strength and stiffness properties (pound for pound, it is stronger than steel and is available in a range of appearance grades for structural or architectural applications.
UTS pre-fabricate and pre-assemble our custom timber millwork to be ready for installation at your jobsite. We offer multiple joinery options including mortise and tenon, internal, and steel plates. All of our millwork is precision cut by CNC to produce perfect lines, arches, and curves. In addition to solid timber millwork, UTS Also supply:
Stairs & Stringer
Flared Round Columns
Lumber Trusses “Experience and Expertise”
UTS has produced wood roof and floor trusses for 6 years. We serve residential, commercial and agricultural markets from locations in Auburndale FL. Extensive use of technology in the office and plant result in finished products that are efficiently designed and built to industry leading standards.
Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL)
LVL is a widely used structural composite lumber product. It is produced by bonding thin wood veneers together in a large billet so that the grain of all veneers is parallel to the long direction. The LVL billet is then sawn to desired dimensions depending on the end-use application. Because LVL is made with scarfed or lapped jointed veneers, LVL is available in lengths far beyond conventional lumber lengths.
Oriented Strand Lumber (OSL)
Oriented strand lumber is also made from flaked wood strands. The strand geometry for OSL results in length-to-thickness ratios of approximately 75. Combined with an adhesive, the strands are oriented and formed into a large mat or billet and pressed. OSL is used in a variety of applications from studs to millwork components.
Parallam® PSL Beams
Parallam® PSL Beams are strong, beautiful, and can help turn open floor plans into reality. Add strength and reliability to your structure when you use Parallam® PSL beams. The superior strength of Parallam® PSL makes longer clear spans possible, giving you more design options with open, spacious floor plans. Parallam® PSL beams can be stained or finished for a handsome look in exposed applications.
An engineered wood joist, more commonly known as an I-joist, is a product designed to eliminate problems that occur with conventional wood joists. The biggest notable difference from dimensional lumber is that the I-joist carries heavy loads with less lumber than a dimensional solid wood joist. I-joists were designed to help eliminate typical problems that come with using solid lumber as joists. The advantage of I-joists is they will not bow, crown, twist, cup, check or split as would a dimensional piece of lumber. I-joists' dimensional soundness and little or no shrinkage help eliminate squeaky floors.
Solid T&G Structural Wood Decking and Glu-Laminetad Decking
Glu-Laminetad Decking is a structurally engineered product of two to five kiln-dried lumber laminations bonded together with an exterior waterproof adhesive to form glue-laminated decking.
Structural insulated panels
Structural insulated panels (SIPs) are a high performance building system for residential and light commercial construction. The panels consist of an insulating foam core sandwiched between two structural facings, typically oriented strand board (OSB). SIPs are manufactured under factory controlled conditions and can be fabricated to fit nearly any building design. The result is a building system that is extremely strong, energy efficient and cost effective. Building with SIPs will save you time, money and labor.
Nail Laminated Timber (NLT)
Nail Laminated Timber (NLT or Nail-lam) is created by fastening individual dimensional lumber, stacked on edge, into one structural element with nails. In addition to being used in floors, decks and roofs, nail-lam panels have been used for timber elevator and stair shafts. NLT offers a consistent and attractive appearance for decorative and exposed to view applications. Sheathing can be added to one top side to provide a structural diaphragm and allows the product to be used as a wall panel element.
Cross-laminated timber (CLT) is a wood panel typically consisting of three, five, or seven layers of dimension lumber oriented at right angles to one another and then glued to form structural panels with exceptional strength, dimensional stability, and rigidity. CLT can be manufactured to customized dimensions and panel sizes vary by manufacturer while length is usually limited by transportation restrictions.
Since CLT panels resist high racking and compressive forces, they are particularly cost effective for multi-story and long-span diaphragm applications. Some specifiers view CLT as both a product and a system that can be used interchangeably with other wood products; it can also be used in hybrid applications.
Because of CLT’s structural properties and dimensional stability, this mass timber product is well suited to floors, walls and roofs used in mid-rise construction. The wall and floor panels may be left exposed in the interior which provides additional aesthetic attributes. The panels are used as prefabricated building components which can speed up construction practices or allow for off-site construction.
Tectum Panels combine a unique textured appearance with unusual durability. Features include excellent sound absorption, lightweight structural strength and Class A/1 flame spread rating. The use of Tectum is very cost effective for a multitude of applications.Tectum Panels are made of aspen wood fibers, bonded with an exclusive hydraulic cement binder. Few, if any other acoustical products can take the repeated abuse that Tectum panels can and still retain their good looks and structural integrity.
UTS use a variety of components to make up the systems. Our products including Glulam and Arches, Timber Millwork, Lumber Trusses, LVL, OSL, PARALLAM, WOOD I-Joist, Solid T&G Structural Wood Decking, Laminated Structural T&G Wood Decking, Structural insulated panels, Nail Laminated Timber, Cross-Laminated Timber, Tectum Panels, Steel Connection Hardwares.
Connection Hardware Components
Connection hardware including Prime-painted Steel, Hot-dipped Galvanized Steel, and Stainless Steel.
Wood-plastic compo sites are building material. The most widespread use of WPCs in North America is in outdoor deck floors, railings, cladding and siding, park benches, molding and trim, window and door frames, and indoor furniture. Wood-plastic composite is more environmentally friendly and requires less maintenance than the alternatives of solid wood treated with preservatives or solid wood of rot-resistant species.
Our design department insures the design works and creates a set of drawings from which our fabricators and installers work. Their expertise in timber design and connection hardware turns the design concept into a reality. It's this expertise that is in demand with architects, engineers, building contractors, and home owners.
