Premium Quality Fingerjointed Lumber.
More value from every tree.

The skilled men and women at Brink Forest Products remanufacture imperfect lumber from other sawmills, creating new products that meet exacting quality and performance standards. The processes used at Brink Forest Products were pioneered here, and are specifically designed for species grown in this region.

Introducing Brink Finger-joined Products

What is fingerjointed lumber? Fingerjointed lumber products are manufactured by taking shorter pieces of quality kiln-dried lumber, machining a “finger” profile in each end of the short-length pieces, adding an appropriate structural adhesive, and squeezing the pieces together to make a longer piece of lumber. Although fingerjointing is used in several wood product manufacturing processes including the horizontal joints for glulam manufacture, the term fingerjointed lumber applies to dimension lumber (See source: Canadian Wood Council).

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 Fingerjointed Lumber

Finger joint lumber is as strong as, or stronger than conventional dimension lumber;

Warping and twisting is significantly minimized;

Each piece is straight and true, as any bow or crook is absorbed in the joint;

Finger joint studs provide a better nailing surface as wane (bark or inconsistencies) on the edge is minimized along the length of the stud;

Rigorous assurance controls ensure that the joints are tested for strength, water resistance and conformance to standards;

Finger joint lumber generally has less prevalence of visually displeasing attributes such as wane and discoloration;

It is made from small pieces of high quality wood ensuring the end product is always of consistent premium quality;

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.
