One of the unique features of CLT and Mass Timber is their ability to sequester carbon. Wood is a naturally renewable resource, and CLT and Mass Timber products are made from sustainably managed forests. As the wood used in these products grows, it absorbs carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, which is then stored within the wood. This makes CLT and Mass Timber carbon-negative materials that help reduce the overall carbon footprint of buildings.
In addition to their environmental benefits, CLT and Mass Timber offer several practical advantages over traditional materials. They're incredibly strong, with excellent load-bearing capabilities, making them suitable for use in a wide range of building projects, from low-rise residential homes to multi-story commercial buildings.
Another benefit of CLT and Mass Timber is their thermal performance. These products have excellent insulation properties, which can help reduce heating and cooling costs, making buildings more energy-efficient. And because CLT and Mass Timber panels are prefabricated off-site, they can be quickly and efficiently installed on-site, reducing construction time and waste.
