Manufacturing News

Timberlink subsidiary NeXTimber has pressed its first Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) panel at its facility at Tarpeena in South Australia.

According to the company, this marks another significant milestone in the construction of Australia’s first combined CLT and GLT (Cross Laminated Timber and Glue Laminated Timber) radiata pine mass timber facility.

The newly commissioned CLT line (pictured) can produce panels up to 16M long and 3.5M wide and will unlock significant capability to manufacture mass timber building products in Australia.

NeXTimber by Timberlink is now accepting orders for CLT and GLT as the facility is scheduled for full production by the end of this month.

The products are made from sustainably certified local Australian plantation pine that sequesters carbon from the atmosphere.

According to the company: “NeXTimber CLT panels and GLT members provide the biophilic and environmental benefits of traditional timber but with the strength to support taller and more complex structures.”
