Solid Wood Fingered BMA

The spruce and Douglas fir wood used in the manufacture of our BMA finger-jointed solid wood comes from sustainably managed forests (PEFC certification).

We mainly work with two species: Spruce and Douglas from the mid-mountain woods of the central massif.

Our Glued Wood: BMA, glued laminated wood, reconstituted solid wood all come from the French forests of the Massif Central. Butted Solid Wood is most often used for construction timber:

Framework of walls under construction or expansion (extension and elevation), Solid wood purlins or rafters, Wings for beams

The manufacturing process of solid finger-jointed wood consists, once the pieces of wood have been brought to a humidity level of between 12 and 18%, in purging the singularities not permitted for the targeted mechanical resistance class, in making the joints multiple at the ends of the boards (core piece orientation on the same side), then glue the joints and join the pieces by pressing in order to reconstitute a very long piece. Wood used for the manufacture of finger-jointed solid timber must be classified according to strength in accordance with EN 14081-1.
