Finger-Jointing

Finger-jointed 12m lengths

Glenalmond Timber has made a £1.3million investment in a Grecon Dimter structural finger jointing facility, enabling finger jointing to lengths of up to 12m +/- 2mm and we are accredited to manufacture finger jointed timbers in C24, C30 and C40 structural grades.

Structural Finger-Jointing

We take regular stress graded carcassing timber and cut into lengths between 1.8m and 3.0m then re-join. In order to prove that the joint is structurally sound, we use our calibrated test rig in Methven in accordance with CATG accredited factory process controls. The joint itself can be 2-3 times stronger than the original timber, and being cut into shorter lengths prior to joining helps to eliminate bow and twist which is always a problem in longer lengths.

We can supply structural graded finger jointed timber in any sections up to 75mm x 275mm and in grades from C16 up to C30 ex-stock. Our production line can cut any length up to 12m and we can also precision end trim +/- 2mm any length required e.g. 9.135m. Finger jointing removes waste incurred by cutting down standard lengths to non-standard and thus reduces cost, labour, waste and disposal on site.

Non-structural Finger-Jointing

For non-structural applications such as external or internal cladding, finger jointing allows us to price large cladding or decking projects in a fixed lump sum instead of per m2 plus 10-15% for waste. For the first time our clients can specify any length they wish for their projects without including a waste factor for standard available stock lengths. This can be up to 20% depending on landed stock available at any given time which, with hardwood or clear softwood projects with fire retardants, can amount to a significant saving. We are currently producing finger jointed cladding in Scottish Larch, Cedar, Siberian Larch, Douglas Fir, English Oak and Sweet Chestnut.
