Fire Risk With Different Adhesives In Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT)
[Research In Progress] Cross-laminated timber (CLT) is a mass-timber composite that is being used to construct tall timber buildings (Jakes et al. 2016). CLT is a panel product made from layers of dimensional lumber where the long axis of each layer is rotated 90° from the previous layer. CLT panels can be manufactured up to 500 mm thick and 18 m long and can be delivered to the jobsite with fenestrations already precut (Mohammad et al. 2012). CLT is the major structural component of many tall wood buildings that have been constructed or are in the planning process including, but not limited to, 24 Murray Grove in London, Brock Commons in Vancouver and the Carbon12 building in Portland.
