Knauf Cross Laminated Timber Systems

Knauf Cross Laminated Timber Systems are lightweight solutions, incorporating familiar and already established plasterboard systems construction methodologies to suit a variety of applications and performance requirements such as but not limited to fire resistance, acoustics and wet areas.

What is Cross Laminated Timber (CLT)?

CLT is a cutting-edge engineered wood product that is revolutionising the way we build. It consists of multiple layers of timber planks stacked in alternating directions and bonded together with structural adhesives.

This unique composition ensures remarkable strength, stability, and durability. With its prefabricated nature, CLT enables faster construction, reducing project timelines significantly. CLT walls are structural elements and can be used in place of concrete walls, precast concrete walls, light framed timber stud walls and many other load bearing wall structures.

Cross Laminated Timber Systems

Fire Resistance

  • Knauf CLT systems satisfy the requirements of the National Construction Code (NCC) for fire protected timber (Massive Timber) and suitable for buildings with an effective height of 25 meters in height.
  • Knauf CLT and XLAM systems are supported by fire tests at CSIRO laboratories at North Ryde in Sydney, and assessments by CSIRO, Warringtonfire and BRANZ.


Thermal

  • Knauf CLT systems have been independently certified by James M Fricker P/L to achieve stated thermal performance in accordance with AS 4859:2018.


Structural and Seismic

  • CLT walls and floors are to be designed to relevant Australian Standards, NCC and project requirements. Refer to XLAM for design and details.
  • Knauf CLT systems utilise Rondo steel components and are to be designed to relevant Australian Standards, NCC and project requirements. Refer to Rondo for design and details.


Acoustics

  • Knauf CLT systems’ acoustic ratings provided in this publication and other Knauf manuals are independently determined by PKA Acoustic Consulting.
  • Knauf CLT systems utilises Knauf Insulation glasswool in the wall and ceiling cavities to achieve the stated acoustic ratings. It also satisfies NCC requirements for cavity filled non-combustible insulation.
