Woodspan PLT Subfloor panels (parallel laminated timber) are glue laminated, structural mass timber panels suitable for use as subfloor structures in medium density construction such as terraced housing.
Woodspan PLT panels are made from finger-jointed or whole timber boards that are then laminated into large panels. Boards are glued so that the grain runs parallel (in the same direction) to the primary span, creating a strong, structurally efficient panel.
Fast Installation — Prefabrication of Woodspan PLT panels offsite using advanced CNC technology ensures fast and accurate installation, reducing labour costs and keeps material waste and construction noise onsite to a minimum
Piling/Bearer Spacing Optimisation — Utilise Woodspan PLT panel spans to reduce number of piles and bearer lines
Thermal Performance — Woodspan PLT panels thermal resistance values range from R=0.75 to R= 1.17 dependent on PLT panel thickness used
Available in 90mm, 117mm and 140mm thicknesses giving multiple spanning options. Maximum panel size 7200mm x 890mm
Fire Resistance — Woodspan PLT floor panels have been subjected to independent, full scale load bearing fire testing to test method AS 1530.4:2014 with FRR 30/30/30 and FRR 60/60/60 options available. Tested passive fire assemblies using Woodspan PLT Panels are available from Ryanfire
Sustainable — Wood from renewable sources is the only truly sustainable construction material available. Wood acts as a carbon store — a vital tool in helping to combat climate change
New Zealand Made — Woodspan PLT panels are manufactured and fabricated in New Plymouth, Taranaki from 100% New Zealand Radiata pine logs from sustainably managed plantation forests
