Project: Hybrid cross laminated timber plates

Cross laminated timber (Xlam or CLt) started its mass production about 15 years ago. Over time it has become one of the most used products in the timber construction industry with its worldwide use growing exponentially. the aim of this project is the development of new types of cross laminated timber plates, so called hybrid crosslam plates, which could be optimised for specific conditions. Namely, the currently produced Xlam plates still have lots of room for improvement that would allow for their more effective and economic use under different conditions. Also the quantity of yearly cut timber in Europe is slowly reaching its maximum. Its price is consequently rising, making conventional Xlam less competitive on the market on one hand and more straining on the forest on the other.
