The efficiency of building components is based on the material-specific characteristics of building products which provide comfort in rooms and resistance against environmental influences.
Wood has natural advantages. For instance, through its low λ value and its ability to adjust to the diffusion processes CLT has the ability to regulate room humidity and climate. Thanks to its cross-laminated structure, KLH® CLT panels – depending on their build up – differ in their values from those specified by the standards for solid timber.
When it comes to building physics, the characteristics of cross-laminated timber (CLT, X-LAM) are regarded as recognised insofar as both the general underlying documents and subject-specific building physics software work with values close to reality.
