Structural finger-joints are glued joints connecting timber members end-to-end capable of transferring appropriate loads.

EN 385 is the standard used by finger-joint manufacturers to verify the on-going strength and reliability of the timber joints.

CATG offers this certification service.

Finger jointed timber is used structurally in glue laminated beams, and sometimes in domestic construction as studs and trusses.
