Mass Ply Panels (MPP) are a massive, large-scale, structural composite lumber-based panel designed as an alternative to cross laminated timber (CLT). Using veneer as a raw material for a mass timber panel achieves the same structural attributes of a CLT panel with 20% less wood. Large format panels are manufactured at the production facility to include window, door, and all other required cut-outs, which minimizes waste and labor on the job site. The relative lightness of the panels helps transportation costs and logistics when constructing buildings on-site. MPP is certified under the Cross Laminated Timber standard PRG 320.
