Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT, Crosslam, X-Lam) is an engineered wood product made from cross-orientated layers of mass 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.
