What is Cross-laminated timber (CLT)?

Cross-laminated timber (CLT) is an engineered wood product that is rapidly gaining popularity in Europe and North America as a sustainable alternative to concrete and steel construction in commercial and multi-residential applications. The system consists of multilayer panels made from solid wood boards stacked crosswise and glued together. The cross-laminated configuration improves rigidity, dimensional stability, and mechanical properties. Structurally, CLT offers performance comparable to concrete or steel, with panels suitable for use as walls, floors, roofs and other applications.
CLT panels are strong and stiff, which allows them to be used in a wide range of applications. The use of CLT panels has become a successful and popular method of construction in Europe since it was first introduced during the early 1990’s. It  is  currently used for  all  kinds  of  structures  ranging  from  houses,  barns, powerline towers,  churches and  bridges  to  high-rise  apartment  and  office  buildings, adding visibility  and  reputation to the system. During 2008-2015, the global production of cross-laminated timber grew at a CAGR of around 26% with Europe accounting for most of this market. Austria is currently the world’s biggest producer of CLT. Other major producers include Germany, Czech Republic, Italy, Spain and Switzerland.
