Transparency Market Research has announced the addition of the “Cross-laminated Timber Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Trends, Growth, and Forecast 2017 - 2025" report to their offering.
Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/14/2017 -- Cross laminated timber is also known as CLT, Cross-Lam, X-Lam, BSP, or KLH. It is a solid, plane product made from timber, which is used for load-bearing purposes. It functions as a panel or plate element in construction. CLT comprise nearly three layers of sawn timber that are glued parallel to one another. Presently, CLT is manufactured primarily from softwood. However, individual layers can be replaced with other timber-derived products such as plaster materials or laminated veneer.
CLT is an engineered wood building system, designed to complement light- and heavy-timber framing options. CLT possess high strength and dimensional stability, which enables it to be used as an alternative to concrete, masonry, and steel in several building types. Depending upon requirement, the CLT can be made available in different lengths and widths. The size of CLT board depends upon its mode or place of usage during construction. CLT is commonly sourced from softwood such as spruce and white fir. Use of CLT in construction offers many advantages as compared to conventional construction materials. It is environmentally-friendly, lighter than bricks or concrete, and possesses good insulating properties. Set-up time for CLT is shorter than other construction materials and is easy to assemble.

Cross laminated timber offers structural simplicity needed for cost-effective buildings, as well as benefits such as fast installation, reduced waste, improved thermal performance, and design versatility. It can be utilized in a wide range of applications, including mid-rise, urban infill, industrial, educational, and civic structures. CLT panels are employed in formation of floor and wall panels. These panels are available with varying thickness with respect to application requirements such as fire performance, span, or loading conditions. Sometimes, panels with high quality surface finishing are employed in areas that are exposed, whereas panels with lower quality are used in areas that can be hidden. Layers in a CLT panel are made of kiln-dried lumber boards that are stacked together in alternating directions. These boards are attached to each other with structural adhesives and pressured to form a solid, rectangular panel. CLT panels consist of odd number of layers (primarily three to seven,) and are sanded or prefinished before shipping. Finished CLT panels are stiff, strong, and stable, and able to handle load transfer on all sides.
CLT is not used everywhere across all regions. It has been utilized in Europe for the last 20 years. Hardwood CLT panels were employed to build the world's first timber mega-tube structure, at the Chelsea College of Arts in London in September 2016. The utilization of CLT has been increasing in North America, while it is slowly gaining popularity in Asia Pacific. In Australia, a nine-story all-timber office building is due to be completed in Brisbane in late 2018. There are various specifications and standards according to which CLT needs to be complacent. In Europe, dried timber with a wood humidity of 12% (+/- 2%) is employed for producing KLH timber boards, which is in accordance with the European Technical Assessment. In North America, APA established ANSI/APA PRG 320 standard, which is recognized in both the U.S. and Canada. This standard recognizes CLT as code-compliant construction material.
