Jointing and Glued-Laminated timber (GLULAM)


The jointing is the connection of several planks of wood with a profile. The planks are permanently connected with glue.
The profile, which is done with a trimmer, increases the surface area of the adhesive seal, thus strengthening the articulation and the cohesion.

The profile can be done on the following surfaces:

  • End grain of the plank (end)
  • Along the fiber (side)

Jointing has numerous benefits:

  • Production of larger beams
  • Creation of homogeneous beams
  • Cutting of faults within the wood
  • Increase in efficiency
