Strength graded structural timber

RISE tests, certifies and performs production control on strength graded structural timber

Cause

RISE has extensive experience of working with different types of grading machines and visual sorting.

We work with:

  • initial tests of new types of grading machines
  • installation verification of grading machines at sawmills and in other industries 
  • visual grading of wood
  • certification and production control
  • development projects

 For CE-marked timber, we work according to the standard EN 14081, but EN 15497 is also relevant with regard to finger-jointed construction timber.

After the United Kingdom left the EU, the CE marking is no longer a valid marking for structural timber. The CE marking is instead replaced by their own UKCA marking. Together with partners, RISE also offers this certification. During a transition period that lasts until 2022-12-31, both labeling systems are valid. Thereafter only the UKCA label is valid.

Method

Testing of timber takes place with help of load and position controlled hydraulic equipment.
