Finger-jointed terrace wood
Finger-jointing is a tried-and-tested wood connection in timber construction, through which individual pieces of solid wood are put together to form a longer piece of decking wood. Wedge-shaped prongs on the ends of the pieces of wood interlock and are weatherproof glued together. This can be seen on the surface of the plank, but fades into the background with weathering and the formation of the patina.
Finger-jointing offers various advantages: the wood is less prone to warping and the tree trunk can be used more efficiently, which makes the product particularly sustainable and usually also cheaper.
