- Equal Design
Every RMT is structurally engineered to meet the stress ratings
of Solid Sawn Timber grade for grade.
- Longer and Straighter
RMT is available in lengths of up to 32 feet. Because it is kiln
dried to a moisture content less than 15% before assembly many undesirable
(yet allowable) properties of green timber (twisting, splitting, cupping
and warping) are "seasoned" out of RMT.
- Uniform Dimensions
and Common Sizes
RMT is manufactured to uniform dimensions similar to Solid Sawn.
No need for shims or planing to adjust for size or crown variations.
- Extra Protection
In addition to being kiln dried, RMT is coated with Liquid Wrap,
a sealer which retards moisture and UV exposure and enhances dimensional
stability, improving yard life. RMT will not distort in the yard or
at the job site like Solid Sawn Timber. No more lost product due
to twisting, cupping, splitting or excessive checking.
- Code Approved
RMT is inspected and certified by the WCLIB in compliance with the
American Lumber Standards (ALS) and is recognized by building inspectors
throughout the country.
Unlike Solid Sawn Timber, RMT is manufactured from smaller, faster-growing
trees cut from second and third generation forests. With the world's
focus on our old growth forests and the growing need for structural
timber, RMT is the smart choice.
