EGO CLT and EGO CLT MIX cross laminated timber panels

CHARACTERISTICS
EGO_CLT™ cross laminated timber panels are fabricated by gluing together layers of timber boards with the grain running at right angles in the alternating layers. To assemble each layer, timber boards are joined together by applying pressure on the edges. Next, a coat of glue is applied on the top surface and a new set of boards oriented perpendicularly to the previous layer’s is laid on top. This step is repeated until the required number of layers is reached (always odd numbers). Finally, the panel is put under a high pressure for optimal bonding.

In the EGO_CLT MIX™ cross laminated timber panels, the central layer of the EGO CLT panel is substituted by timber beams, creating cavities within that are filled with thermo-acoustic insulation: wood fibre, sheep wool or rock-wool.

Both panels are characterized by their dimensional stability.


 

APPLICATIONS

  • EGO_CLT™ and EGO_CLT MIX™ cross laminated timber panels are used in external and internal walls, floor and roof slabs. The versatility of these systems make them ideal for the construction of houses, multi storey buildings, offices, industrial units, modular constructions and public buildings such as nurseries, schools, cultural centres, sports centres...
  • The timber panels are manufactured to meet the exact specifications of each project including openings for staircases, windows and doors and ducting conducts for services channels, plugs, etc.
  • Prefabricated panels allow for a very accurate, clean and quick assembly on site, significantly reducing construction times and disruption in the area. The structure´s exposure to bad weather and on-site risks of accident are reduced too. Also, it entails a more efficient coordination of following trades.
  • In addition to their structural strength and aesthetic appeal, our timber panels have excellent acoustic and thermal insulation properties. With a manufacturing process respectful with the environment, the panels represent a truly sustainable construction system that sequestrates CO2 and reduces the carbon footprint of the building.

EGO_CLT™

  • Consists of panels made of wooden planks glued in layers and crossed between them, always in an odd number. Wooden layers are made of wooden planks of the corresponding thickness, joined by side pressure using no glue. Then a coat of glue is extended over all the wooden surface, a second wooden layer is placed crosswise (at 90º as regards the previous one), a new coat of glue is extended and again another wooden layer is placed on top. Once all the wooden layers have been placed, the pressing process takes place. The number of wooden layers is three, five or seven, but they can be increased until a complete panel of the thickness as defined in the project is achieved.

EGO_CLT MIX™

  • The central wooden layer is substituted by a beam structure, generating a hollow cavity or box.
  • This cavity is used for inserting the thermo-acoustic insulation: wooden fibre, sheep’s wool or mineral Rockwool. Glue is applied on the plate is if it were a pressing operation of layers - and then two layers are placed on each side, making a total of five.
  • These panels deliver better mechanical, thermal and acoustic performances for the same volume of wood per surface unit. They are mainly used for the framework of floors and roofs. They deliver great stability, allowing to build with relatively big spans of up to 10-12 m., for standard loads in residential and administration buildings.
