Products / Services Summary
Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT)
Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT, Crosslam, X-Lam) is an engineered wood product made from cross-orientated layers of solid wood that have been glued together to form large structural panels up to 320mm in thickness. These ‘master’ panels are then further processed into smaller panels with window and door cut-outs, panels that are small enough to be transported to site.
Cross-laminated timber (CLT) is widely used for both building structure and building enclosure due to its strength and dimensional stability. It is also an extremely versatile material as it is suitable for walls, floors and roofs and can provide an attractive appearance and help regulate the indoor climate when left exposed.
Whilst CLT manufacture has existed for over 20 years, it has only recently become a standardized and globally produced material. CLT is rapidly becoming a commodity material similar to concrete.
As a manufacturer-independent specialist in CLT we are accustomed to working with different CLT manufacturers and are free to select the most suitable CLT manufacturer for any given project and procurement route.
Other Laminated Timber Panel Products
Dowel-Laminated Timber (DLT)
Dowel-Laminated Timber (DLT, Dowellam, Brettstapel) is an engineered wood product made from graded timber boards that have been dowelled (rather than glued) together to form semi-fabricated floor and roof panels.
Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL)
Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) is an engineered wood product made from timber veneers that have been glued together into sheets of varying thicknesses.
Lignatur ® (LFE)
Lignatur ® is a proprietary solid timber cassette system for floors and roofs. It is an extremely versatile product as its cavities can be thermally insulated and its underside acoustically perforated. Being a relatively lightweight product with a good span-to-depth ratio it is particularly suited for exposed applications within schools and other public buildings.
