The alternative to scarf joints and fish plate repairs for joists, beams, rafters, purlins and wall plates.



When the bearing ends of joists, rafters, purlins or structural beams become decayed, the removal of decayed timber and subsequent replacement in new sound timber can be problematic.

  • Traditional scarf joints can prove either difficult to install or fail to transfer intended loads successfully.
  • Load transferring steel fishplates, whilst effective, are unsightly, and sometimes unsuitable, particularly in listed buildings.

Shuttered Resin Repair offers an aesthetically pleasing alternative, and can easily be combined with reinforcing rods to combat shear forces within the timber.

Temporary or permanent shuttering can be used depending on the situation and the degree of cosmetic finishing required.

Shuttered resin repair can be used in the following situations:-

* Feet of Truss Rafters
* Joist ends
* Main Beam/bressummer ends
* Glulam joints and decayed bearing points
* Decayed hardwood tusked tenon joints
* Wall plate sections
* Beetle infested listed building framing members

The majority of treatment work guaranteed for 30 years. Extended guarantee protection is also available.
