Exterior Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) Breakthrough

New Zealand exterior wood specialist Abodo has achieved another first – an exterior CLT panel made exclusively from thermally modified radiata pine.

The CLT panel is made up of hundreds of 150×50 sections of Abodo’s Vulcan Cladding – a thermally modified radiata pine product, which is engineered with a consistent vertical grain for superior weathering. Vulcan is typically used for high performance cladding and exterior doors.

The CLT panel at 3.0m high, 2.5m wide and 150mm thick is being used for Abodo’s new showroom and factory sign, at 62 Ascot Rd, Mangere, Auckland. The panel itself was pressed and the Abodo logo CNC routered by Xlam in Nelson, and it has been protected with Sioo:x, a new generation weathering coating imported by Abodo from Sweden. Scioo:x will react with the thermally modified pine to create a toughened exterior which will silver off over time, in keeping with the factory and showroom building.

“We have built our new showroom sign from solid engineered thermally modified pine, as a testament to our belief in new generation wood technology – we will monitor the performance of the sign over time, with a view to commercialise exterior CLT for specific applications in the future” states Marketing Director and Founder, Daniel Gudsell.
