Technical Information

Our products are built to look good and last for years. To ensure optimum performance we use industry leading components.

TIMBER

All of our timber is from legally & sustainably managed forests. We use engineered section which means the dimensional stability is far better than solid wood. Engineered timber is made from layers of wood bonded together, this multi-layer construction offers stability and stress performance much better than traditional solid hardwood, it is also free from the problems associated with knots, plaits and staining.

Our most popular Hardwoods are Red Grandis and European Oak.
Oak is chosen for its colour, grain configuration and natural beauty. Best used with translucent finishes allowing the natural beauty to shine through. Oak is naturally strong and resilient.

RED GRANDIS

Often called the hardwood of the future, Red Grandis is durable and fungi resistant. Careful forest management ensures that tall, straight trees are grown free from natural defects and have stress-free straight grain.

WE ALSO USE ACCOYA

Accoya raises the standards and reliability of timber windows & doors to a new level. It is the result of more than 75 years of research and development and is wood modified by using an acetylation process. Guaranteed to last 50 years and modified to the core not just on the surface. As a result of the process the wood resists rot, decay and swelling by resisting moisture absorbtion.

GLASS

We use high performance double or triple glazed units. Argon filled with warm edge spacers and soft coat low E glass. Designed to keep your home warm and thermally efficient.

PAINT/FINISH

Our Paint/Finish is from industry leading supplier Anker Stuy. We use three coat micro-porous finish which is flexible and durable. It is applied in the controlled conditions and factory finished for best result.

Anker Stuy coating systems provide extended service life in both translucent and opaque finishes protecting against weathering, UV degradation mould and fungal attack. We can offer both translucent and opaque finishes in a wide selection of colours. We also do split colour if required. Matching to both RAL and Farrow & Ball and Zoffany colours.

HARDWARE

The hinges, handles & locks we use are from the best supplied. Selected for quality, durability, security and value for money. We offer a selection of colours and styles classic, modern and antique to suit your project and taste. Thoughtful features include:
