Concrete construction is one of the strongest and longest lasting forms of construction in the known world. Though many improvements have been made in technology, at the end of the day laminates, glues, and other materials used to create exotic wood based building materials just cannot withstand exposure to fire.
Saving lives in the first priority of any good building design and if you can use the right materials you can save the structure too.
Resilience. Safety. Build With Strength.
A CLT panel consists of several layers of kiln-dried lumber boards stacked in alternating directions, bonded with structural adhesives, and pressed to form a solid, straight, rectangular panel. CLT panels consist of an odd number of layers (usually, three to seven,) and may be sanded or prefinished before shipping. While at the mill, CLT panels are cut to size, including door and window openings, with state-of-the art CNC (Computer Numerical Controlled) routers, capable of making complex cuts with high precision. Finished CLT panels are exceptionally stiff, strong, and stable, handling load transfer on all sides.
