The processing of structural timber has progressed from sawing planks for CLT, to veneering for plywood and LVL, and most recently stranding.
Stranding Major Advantages:
Using small diameter, economical juvenile fast growing and high yielding tree crops.
Provides high conversion c. 70+% vs, c 40%-50% for CLT.
The cost of raw material is significantly lower.
Laminae are precision-engineered for a product that is free of natural defects, with far less variation than planks used in CLT.
