2. Constructive Connections of Surfaced Boards

- Joint boarding
The boards are connected by straight or inclined joints.


Figure 2

Nailing is open (visible).
Joint boards are used in buildings of less importance.

- Rebated boarding
The boards mate by rebates.


Figure 3

Nailing is open.
Rebated boards are used in buildings of less importance, too.

- Tongued boarding
The boards get grooves on both longitudinal sides in which tongues from wood - hardwood is recommended - or flat irons are shoved.


Figure 4

Open nailing is preferred. Covered nailing is possible only in some cases. Tongued boarding can be used in buildings of less importance and in flats.

- Matched boarding
The boards are connected by tongue and groove joints.


Figure 5

This technique provides a solid and dense floor serving many purposes.
Open and covered nailing is possible.

Which kind of boarding is the most recommendable one?
