XLam Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) floor panels are custom-made in sizes, thicknesses and profiles to suit most residential and commercial jobs.
CLT is made from layers of solid timber planks face-glued together in alternating directions to make large, stable solid wood construction panels. Span capacity increases with the number of layers and overall panel thickness.
Factory prefabricated CLT is used for floors in residential, commercial and industrial buildings, including floor diaphragms in multi-storied timber construction.
CLT is very economical for residential floors, particularly those on sloping ground where a flat floor platform can be quickly achieved. The span and cantilevering capabilities of CLT permit economies in foundation support.
XLam floor panels are craned into position at the rate of approximately 100sqm floor area per hour, meaning an entire house floor can be placed in less than four hours. This represents a large saving on-site labour.
XLam NZ Ltd is the first company to manufacture and commercialise CLT in Australasia. The XLam factory is located in Nelson, New Zealand, where the immediate accessibility of quality timber and manufacturing resource has established an engineered wood industry cluster.
As yet there are no Australian or NZ standards specific to the manufacture and use of CLT. However, CLT is very similar to Glue Laminated Timber in that it is manufactured from finger jointed, dried timber using glue lamination under pressure. XLam manufacture complies with Adopted Standards which govern the design, preparation, finger jointing, planing, lamination and verification of XLam CLT products:
