McIntosh Timber Laminates Ltd is qualified under the following licenses:-
ManufactureManufacture is carried out to the demanding requirements of ASNZS 1328 and is regularly inspected by the NZ Timber Certification Board.
Using specialised heavy duty equipment McIntosh has an ongoing programme of keeping up with Glulam technology. Our modern factory is equipped with three overhead gantries enabling the efficient handling of large finished Glulam members.
Finger JointingContinuous laminations are produced to any length using Structural finger joints to AS5068. In-house quality control testing ensures consistent strength is achieved. The unique McIntosh finger-joint system allows the use of the longest length of in-grade timber. In this way the distance between finger joints in a lamination can be up to 6m. The average distance between finger joints in each lamination is 2.3m. This contrasts to the normal use of short shooks used by other manufactures where the average length may be as short as 400mm.
Kiln DryingOnly kiln dried material is used in McIntosh Glulam. With a moisture content of 12 – 16%, maximum stability is ensured in finished McIntosh Glulam products.
