Wonders of cross laminated timber
CLT ( cross laminated timber) - often known as the engineered wood of the future is gradually becoming more and more common in sustainable designs.
First developed in Switzerland in 1970, cross laminated timber has come a long way with its potential for large commercial Highrise buildings.
Made with enhanced structural properties , CLT is composed of layers of timber glues at alternating 90 degree angles.
It is due to its unique composition that CLT is able to be used in both flooring , walls and roofs.
With similar characteristics to pre cast concrete panels , CLT is advantageous in its simple and efficient construction and lightweight nature.
