Wood Windows and Doors – Timber Quality

By Jamie Hackett 05 February 2015

As people are becoming more aware of their environment many are looking for natural products when choosing windows and doors for their homes. When choosing wood windows today people do not have to compromise on comfort or durability, choice of style, shape or colour. High quality wood windows and doors now offer style, comfort, warmth and durability to any home and are increasingly the first choice of architects and designers.

Our wood windows and doors are manufactured using only the highest quality knot free timber with a moisture
content of 12% ± 2.

The pine wood used to manufacture our products consists of a minimum 60% heart- wood from sustainable forests in
North Scandinavia where the trees grow slowly and naturally and no fertilisers are
used. We use only laminated triple-layer wood. Three layers are used because this technology prevents the window frame from warping and increases the lifetime of the windows. The outer layers are radial or half- radial cut and this method protects window surfaces from wood splitting.

Species of wood available:
• Pine (finger-joint or solid)
• Oak
• Meranti
• Mahogany
• Other species of traditional
(eucalyptus, larch) or exotic (hemlock, oregon, white saraya) timber

All of these timbers have proven to be extremely stable over time and will deliver years of trouble free service.
