Mass Timber Construction on the Rise

Customers turn to Hilti for mass timber solutions

Mass timber construction has been on the rise in recent years thanks to its many features, such as smaller carbon footprints, faster construction times, and the ability to do more on-site fabrication.

As a result, Hilti is focusing on how to better support this construction type and has become a leader in innovative and efficient pre-fabricated solutions while offering superior options for the firestopping needs of complex mass timber projects.

Firestop support and solutions

Firestop is often an important design consideration in mass timber projects. Passive fire protection is vital for creating a safer and code-compliant building. Hilti offers a variety of solutions that can be installed in pre-fabricated timber elements. This means you can install firestop in pre-fabricated timber elements before they leave the factory — helping to reduce construction time on site by as much as half.
