Finger-jointed structural wood for load bearing pursposes is produced according to harmonized EU-standard EIN EN 15497. It consists of solid pieces of wood that are glued together lengthwise. The connection between the wood pieces is established via milled finger-joints.
The technique of finger-jointing wood revolutionized wood processing in many ways and is key part of many of today’s wood products. By finger-jointing wood products such as finger-jointed structural timber can be produced with “infinite” length, enabling e.g. the production of 40m wide glulam beams. We have use this technique for almost 50 years and have been able to accumulate lots of experience.
