XLam NZ is the first manufacturer of Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) panels in the Southern Hemisphere.

The company produces panels 15.3m long x 3.2m wide, in a number of different formats suitable for floors, walls and roofs. These amazing engineered timber panels are made-to-order and custom-machined to prepare them for rapid assembly. Using this system, a two-storey house can be fully erected on a prepared foundation in a single day. Production is expected to begin before the end of 2011.

CLT is rapidly building market share across Europe. XLam NZ believe the system has a great future down under. It is suitable for both commercial and residential construction, either as a complete building system or as components to be used within hybrid buildings. It performs very well in terms of thermal efficiency, seismic and fire resistance and acoustics. CLT also has wonderful sustainability credentials and is made almost entirely from locally-grown materials.
