Cross-laminated timber, or CLT, is an engineered wood product, which is made by stacking layers of wood panels in perpendicular directions and fastening them together. This crosswise arrangement helps in increasing the structural strength, load-bearing capacity, dimensional stability and rigidity of the wood panels while reducing their shrinkage and swelling. CLT was first developed in Europe during the early 1990s and has now come to represent an important construction material in the region. It is also used for a number of residential and commercial applications, either in combination with other building materials and wood products or as a standalone system.
CLT represents an inexpensive, flexible and time-saving substitute to conventional construction materials such as concrete, steel and masonry. This is a result of the prefabrication of CLT according to the desired dimensions and shapes that reduces on-site waste, as well as saves installation time. Moreover, it represents an environment-friendly and sustainable building material as it is made of wood. CLT panels also help in reducing the amount of carbon dioxide present in the environment by trapping more than 1500 kg of CO2 per ton. The manufacturing and transportation of CLT also produce lesser pollution as compared to conventional building materials. One of the significant factors that have facilitated the demand for CLT in the European region is the green building movement, which requires constructors to use sustainable and eco-friendly construction materials. Amendments in the International Building Code 2015, allowing the use of CLT for the large building, has also helped in expanding the market. Enhanced marketing and increasing awareness about the advantages of CLT, along with improved distribution channels, represent some of the other growth-inducing factors.
