CROSS-LAMINATED TIMBER (CLT)
CLT is a wood panel product made from gluing layers of solid-sawn lumber together. Each layer of boards is usually oriented vertical to adjacent layers and glued on the wide faces of each board, usually in a symmetric way so that the outer layers have the same orientation. Regular timber is an anisotropic material, meaning that the physical features change depending on the direction at which the force is applied. By gluing layers of wood at right angles, the panel is able to achieve better structural rigidity in both directions. It is comparable to plywood but with characteristically thicker laminations.
