Cross Laminated Timber

CROSS-LAMINATED TIMBER (CLT)

CLT provides new design possibilities

Cross-laminated timber offers a sustainable, cost-effective, and human centered construction alternative to concrete and steel. CLT can be used in many structural applications including floors, walls, roofs, shearwalls, elevator cores, and stairs.

CLT provides new design possibilities, facilitating the construction of structures with a pared-down, organic look and offering unlimited architectural creativity.

Element5 CLT is manufactured in our FSC certified plant using sustainably sourced wood from northern Ontario forests.
At 3.5m maximum width, our press produces the widest panels available in Canada, delivering enhanced efficiency to any build.
Want to expose your CLT? Our automated, state-of-the-art production line edge-glues panels for a visually superior finish.
