In Australia CLT has a big potential but has to be imported from overseas to date for quite high prices. Milling of Pinus Radiata using optimised sawing patterns for yield and consecutive mechanical grading leads to a substantial amount of boards that cannot directly be used for structural purposes. Therefore it should be economically interesting to produce CLT using this resource. The authors performed a considerable amount of mechanical tests using various setups and optimised layups in order to investigate the mechanical properties of Pinus Radiata CLT using non-structural boards. The results showed that depending on the layup of the CLT the used resource leads to a product that performs similarly to the ones on the market in Europe.
