Certificates and iCLT Panel Testing
Testing the massive iCLT panels for fire resistance in the fire testing room
Singular panel without any additional layer was tested in order to prove sufficient fire resistance of the supporting structure. When adding more layers like plasterboard etc. the resulting fire resistance even increases. The connecting materials proved to be efficient as they prevented the layers of wood boards from sudden falling apart. The panel behaved as one solid wooden element.

iCLT 81 kept sufficient bearing capacity even after the fire resistance test
iCLT 81 Panel – Fire Test
Static bearing capacity tests were held
at CTU laboratories in Prague.
|Panel Name||Characteristic value of vertical load capacity [kN/bm]||Characteristic value of vertical load capacity [kN/bm]|
|Without any wind load (Internal wall panel)||Including the wind load (External wall panel)|
|iCLT 81 S||91,64||72,41||12,917|
|iCLT 108 B||61,056||42,167||12,917|
Given values are valid for panels 3.0 m high. The wind load for external panel is counted for conditions: wind region II, terrain category III, height above terrain up to 10 m. Possible use of paper membrane does not have any negative influence on vertical load capacity.
