Finger-Jointed Solid Structural Lumber from Bois Brever
Finger-jointed solid structural lumber is construction timber manufactured through the process of finger jointing, where several pieces of wood are glued together.
First of all, the wood is dried, then flaws and fragile parts of the pieces of wood which could reduce the strength of the product, such as knots or wanes, are removed by cutting them out. Afterwards, long and solid pieces of wood are obtained by the process of end-to-end gluing of those flawless and short pieces. The ends are re-joined with finger-joints. After the finger-jointing the pieces of timber are cut to length and planed or levelled to an exact size. The outcome is a very solid and deformation resistant construction timber.
Finger-jointed timber offers numerous advantages: the wood is dried down to a humidity percentage rate of 15 +/- 3%, which is systematically controlled. It prevents subsequent torsions of the wood. The technical drying process desensitises the wood against insect attacks and a chemical protection of the wood is thus, not necessary. Finger-jointed construction timber is renowned for its high quality, deformation resistance, its solidity, its accuracy of fit and aesthetic values.
Finger-jointed timber is used in all wood construction domains:
- roof structures
- wooden supporting structures
- interior carpentry
