Building and construction are responsible for 39% of global carbon emissions. Operational emissions account for 28% and the remaining 11% come from embodied carbon emissions.
Of these, steel and concrete each account for 8% of man’s greenhouse gas emissions.
Many forms of timber traditionally used in construction deplete precious natural resources.
Resource-efficiency in construction tends to be low, with high levels of waste.
CLST® stranded wood products are factory-finished and produce more from less:
Using almost entirely engineered wood products sequesters carbon in buildings for decades and can reduce their carbon footprint by up to 75%.
Lignor’s stranded wood products are a sustainable and recyclable alternative to heavier and carbon-intensive steel, concrete and bricks, turning buildings into carbon sinks.
They require fewer trades and reduce labour costs due to factory-built prefabricated technology.
They enable easy and fast ‘flat pack’ assembly for just-in-time construction.
They can be used by existing lumber CLT producers as the core material for CLT panels in mass construction.
They are suitable for use in low and mid-rise buildings including apartment blocks of up to 15 storeys.
They are strong, sustainable, fire and acoustic resisting.
They embrace biophilic design principles, providing a sense of wellness and connection to nature.
Higher bending resistance, stiffness and resistance to shear stress allow greater load capacities, longer spans and reduced panel thickness.
