Engineered Timber

Engineered Timber

Engineered timbers fall into two different types, Finger Jointed or Laminated. At Illingworth Ingham (M/cr) Ltd we can advise on the best type for your needs.

Finger Jointed Timbers

Finger jointed timbers uses the best, fault free pieces of wood which have any defects removed . The fault free sections are put together to make a much stronger, better quality piece of wood which can be up to 6 m long.

Finger jointing technology is recognised as the most stable method to produce very long wood components or to separate out knots and cracks which would otherwise lower the strength of the timber. By using finger joints it is possible to joint short pieces of wood into one much longer, stronger better quality piece of timber.

Whilst finger jointing can enhance the natural beauty of the timber, it can also result in different shades appearing within the length of timber.

Laminated Timbers

Benefits of Engineered Timbers

Improved Quality
Engineered timber processes involve removing any timber sections with defects, using only the best, fault free pieces.

Durability and Stability
The engineering process provides greater dimensional stability, decreasing the risk of shrinking, cupping, twisting or bowing. This improves thermal and acoustic performance of the timber and its appearance.

Engineered timber has a glue line that is stronger than the timber itself; it also has all defects and knots removed. This makes engineered timber 60% stronger than its solid timber alternatives.

Environmentally friendly
Engineered timber generates 25% less waste than solid timber, and the waste that is generated is recycled making engineered timber the greenest material to build with.
