Cross Laminated Timber – CLT

 

Cross laminated timber (BSP, CLT or X-lam) is constructed from multiple layers of solid wood. Cross laminated timber consists of 3 to 9 softwood board layers glued together crosswise.

CLT solid wood panels are available in different panel thicknesses depending on the static requirements, with thicknesses from 60 to 360 mm and formats up to max. 3.50 m high x 16.50 m long.

 

As a pure wood product, cross laminated timber binds the CO2 absorbed during the growth phase of the raw material in the long term, thus offering a genuine environmentally friendly alternative to conventional building materials such as concrete or steel.

 

The great advantages are the high degree of prefabrication of the wall elements, and thus a very short assembly time on the construction site.

The finished CLT elements are cut precisely to plan in our factory on one of the most modern CNC-controlled joinery machines, with openings for doors and windows, incisions, milling for electrics, wiring, etc.

Due to its low dead weight, CLT is also ideally suited for adding storeys to existing buildings.

 

In cooperation with our sister company “Woodinnovation AG” we can offer you a wide range of products. Visit our website: www.woodinnovation.be
