What is CLT?

NZ Lifestyle Block - - Nz Lifestyle Block Smart Series -

Cross lam­i­nated tim­ber (CLT) pan­els are sim­i­lar to ply­wood. The thick lay­ers are solid-sawn lum­ber, glued to­gether, pressed and cured. Each layer lies at right an­gles to the one un­der it, giv­ing the fin­ished panel struc­tural rigid­ity in both di­rec­tions. Pan­els can be cus­tom-made to fit a project, and vary in size and thick­ness to give the re­quired strength. CLT is a solid struc­tural tim­ber, but the pan­els can also serve as the fin­ished in­te­rior sur­face (as in Julie's home), with no need for lin­ings, plas­ter­ing or paint­ing.
