Houses from Cross-Laminated Panels
Structural components made from cross-laminated wood are modern composite materials that are more even and have better mechanical and deformational characteristics than those made of solid wood. Cross-laminated pieces make up the cross-stacked wooden slats or boards, which have been surface bonded into a more solid piece under high pressure. Depending on the use and bearing requirements, the panels are produced using an odd number of layers – 3, 5, 7 or more, up to a maximum thickness of 60 cm.
Houses made from cross-laminated panels provide the building with excellent protection against the effects of horizontal loads such as the wind or earthquakes. Thanks to these characteristics, we have much more creative freedom when planning and designing a building. Using various surface KLH treatment processes, we can create the appearance of a brick house or leave it looking like compact wood.
Advantages of houses made of cross-laminated panels:
- Structural components made from cross-laminated wood are modern composite materials
- Greater design freedom
- Excellent protection against the effects of horizontal loads (the wind or earthquakes)
- We can create the appearance of a brick house or leave it looking like compact wood
