Engineered Strand Lumber – Uni-directional Strength timber. ESL® can be used for beams, posts, flooring and to manufacture Cross Laminated Strand Timber (CLST™). ESL® has up to twice the stiffness (Modulus of Elasticity) of softwood.
ESL® flooring is attractive and can be used as a replacement to flooring made from tropical hardwoods.
By substituting sustainably and legally produced Lignor ESL® for tropical hardwoods commonly used in flooring and container flooring (two globally significant markets), significant man-made greenhouse gas emissions can be avoided.
