Finger-jointed solid construction timber

Finger-jointed solid construction timber is graded, kiln-dried and planed solid timber, which can be manufactured in almost any length. Finger-jointed solid construction timber is classified into strength classes by visual or machine grading according to EN 14081-1 of Eurocode 5: Design of timber structures. Different strength classes apply. Specifications for finger-jointing are given in EN 385. This standard defines performance requirements and also sets a maximum wood moisture content of 16%~18%. The natural durability against biological attack of this type of timber product depends on the wood species used. The durability can be enhanced with standard techniques such as preventative biocides. CE-certificate is also required.
