CLT to create new opportunities for hardwoods

CLT to create new opportunities for hardwoods

Although the first CLT production facilities were constructed in the DACH countries (Germany, Austria and Switzerland) in 1994, the full potential is only now being realised following a long period of technical and market development. CLT first entered the building market during the 2005 to 2010 period, transforming from a small-scale niche product into large-scale industrial production.

CLT panels consist of several layers of structural lumber boards stacked crosswise (typically at 90 degrees) and glued together on their wide faces and, sometimes, on the narrow faces as well.

In special configurations, consecutive layers may be placed in the same direction to obtain specific structural characteristics. CLT products are usually fabricated with three to seven layers, but with additional layers in some cases.
