Joinery is the non-structural use of wood, such as windows, doors, cladding boards, skirting boards, door linings, staircases and architraves. It also includes decking components such as decking boards, handrails and banisters, as well as solar shading. Joinery is known as ‘internal’ for applications inside a building and ‘external’ when exposed to the weather.

The first section of this Wood Information Sheet (WIS) introduces BS EN 942 Timber in joinery. General requirements [1]. The Standard categorises the quality of timber used in joinery by defining the physical characteristics of the timber. The second section summarises how to specify timber for joinery.

The third section discusses natural durability and wood preservation, which is particularly important for external joinery.

This WIS is an overview of the subject with signposts to more detailed sources that are listed at the end.
