Finnforest delivers a range of eco-efficient engineered timber building solutions to enable the design and construction of residential and commercial buildings with material sustainability and advanced structural performance.
By utilising engineered timber products - Kerto, Glulam and Thermowood - Finnforest constantly invests in developing systems and software to aid specifiers design buildings that exceed legislative requirements, achieve higher Code and BREEAM ratings and fulfil aesthetic aspirations.
The Finnjoist, a fully engineered timber i-joist, forms the main component of systems such as Low Energy Walls and Roofs and the SoundBar System for acoustic flooring. Both developed to help specifiers and developers meet and even exceed the requirements of Part L and Part E.
Further systems for use in the design of larger structures such as school buildings and even agricultural applications and warehousing are also avaliable, for example the Kerto Ripa System enables the construction of wider clear spans, up to 18m, in less time while the Kerto Portal Frame delivers speed of installation and site efficiencies to large scale agricultural applications. By drawing on the expertise of its engineering partner, Finnforest Merk, Finnforest is able to provide the technical knowledge and support required to help achieve even the most demanding architectural specifications in sustainable timber.
