Woodspan PLT panels are made from fingerjointed or whole timber boards that are then laminated into large panels. As all grain runs in the direction of the primary span, a strong, structurally sound panel is produced.
PLT panels are exceptionally strong so they can be used for anything from new homes to multi-story buildings, with minimal additional structural support. Utilising PLT for mid floors and roofs can help reduce the height of your building. Particularly useful if you are battling with height to boundary restrictions!

Silks Audit required a new office building for their Taranaki team that provided open plan areas, meeting rooms and amenities. View the solution we provided.
Completed in Hobsonville, Auckland, this project consists of light industrial units with mezzanine floors. We supplied mass timber panels in visual grade.
The Green School NZ is an innovative and award winning piece of architecture in rural Taranaki, hosting an inspiring learning environment.
Working with Studio Well Architecture and the engineering team at ENGCO, we had the pleasure of working on a bespoke A-frame chalet in Canterbury.
Our PLT products are quick and easy to install, without the need for an entire construction crew. We’ll ensure you can keep your overheads as low as possible.
Timber is made to be celebrated and we love the natural aesthetics and feeling of warmth that wood products bring to a building project. Our PLT products are available in a visual grade finish to take full advantage of these benefits.
From producing your timber construction materials at our workshop to delivering them to your site, you can learn more about the Woodspan process below.
Fire resistance ratings on Woodspan PLT floor panels have been established through independent, full-scale loadbearing testing to test method AS 1530.4:2014.
When fire design is required in accordance with the New Zealand Building Code, building elements such as floors and walls are required to have a specific fire resistance rating (FRR). In order to achieve a fire-resistance rating (FRR), three criteria must be met for the specified fire resistance period:
The fire resistance rating is often expressed as Structural Adequacy/Integrity/Insulation, so that FRR 60/60/60 means 60 minutes of fire-resistance has been achieved for all three criteria.
