What is CLT?
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.
