Benefits – Straightness and Stability

Finger jointed lumber is becoming a very popular and desirable product in the construction industry’s repertoire of engineered wood products.

Finger jointing results in much higher quality and stronger pieces and components, while dramatically reducing waste in our industry where the cost of raw materials is rapidly increasing.

The two most important advantages of finger jointed lumber are straightness and dimensional stability. With short lengths of wood joined into longer pieces, the warping and twisting associated with regular dimension lumber is minimized. The finger jointing process allows the removal of strength reducing defects to produce a product with higher engineering properties.

Great Reasons to Use Finger jointed Lumber:

Strength
Finger joint lumber is as strong as, or stronger than conventional dimension lumber;
Stability
Warping and twisting is significantly minimized;
Straightness
Each piece is straight and true, as any bow or crook is absorbed in the joint;
Nailing Surface
Finger joint studs provide a better nailing surface as wane (bark or inconsistencies) on the edge is minimized along the length of the stud;
Quality Control
Rigorous assurance controls ensure that the joints are tested for strength, water resistance and conformance to standards;
Appearance
Finger joint lumber generally has less prevalence of visually displeasing attributes such as wane and discoloration;
Consistency
It is made from small pieces of high quality wood ensuring the end product is always of consistent premium quality; and
Environmental Friendliness
It reduces waste by salvaging excellent quality wood from short pieces of lumber that would otherwise be discarded. Finger jointing maximizes the value extracted from every tree harvested.
