Here is a selection of our most comonly used timber, however we accomidate all customer requirements so if you would like your product in a different specisification of timber such as Oak for example we can certainly provide.
We take great pride in saying that all of our Timber is professionally sourced by leading timber suppliers and then hand picked by our joiners to ensure that the qualities of our products are kept to the highest standard possible. We only source timber from sustainable Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) approved providers.
What our Professionals look for when hand picking timber is the tightness of the grain, defects in timber i.e. splits, knots bows etc. All timber material is kiln dried to ensure minimum movement of all our bespoke joinery. These measures in turn make for faultless exceptionally high crafted joinery products.
Accoya® is the world’s leading high technology long life wood. Created via acetylated wood modification, using sustainably grown timber.
The Accoya® wood production process takes sustainably-sourced, fast growing softwood and, in a non toxic process that ‘enables nature’, creates a new durable, stable and beautiful product, a ‘treated timber’ that has the very best environmental credentials.
The treatment proceedure mentioned above involves the wood being soaked in a non-toxic preservative and then kiln dried making a new product that is effectively preserved Timber. The physical properties of any material are determined by its chemical structure. Wood contains an abundance of chemical groups called “free hydroxyls”. Free hydroxyl groups adsorb and release water according to changes in the climatic conditions to which the wood is exposed. This is the main reason why wood swells and shrinks. It is also believed that the digestion of wood by enzymes initiates at the free hydroxyl sites – which is one of the principal reasons why wood is prone to decay.
Acetylation effectively changes the free hydroxyls within the wood into acetyl groups. This is done by reacting the wood with acetic anhydride, which comes from acetic acid (known as vinegar when in its dilute form). When the free hydroxyl group is transformed to an acetyl group, the ability of the wood to absorb water is greatly reduced, rendering the wood more dimensionally stable and, because it is no longer digestible, extremely durable.
Accoya is the result of just over 75 years of scientific research and is helping to protect the world’s precious hardwood resources and is guaranteed by Accoya for 50 years in exterior use and 25 years when used in the ground. This long life also provides an added benefit – helping to reduce carbon emissions.
PLANITHERM is a new generation of energy saving window glass that uses advanced coatings and Argon gasfilled units to retain more internal warmth whilst capturing free energy from natural daylight. That means lower energy bills compared to standard windows at the same price as average windows.
This product is a relatively new form of technology and from customer feedback it certainly makes a difference in regards to heat retention within the property. Whats more we can provide this technology to the customer at no more of a cost than standard double glazed units.
Amoungst the make up of our windows we only use Lead Weights instead of cast iron to counterbalance the weight of the sash itself, This is due to lead being much more dence and therefore takes up less space within the internal box its also standard in the modern make up of Box Sash Windows.
In terms of the sash cord we use it is red flex. This cord is much stronger and prevents the common problem in most Box Sash Windows of the cord snapping effecting counterbalance this is because it is pre-stretched and traditionally waxed. Our Pullys also have a simular reasonance behind them they are ballbearing and axle based pulleys which are industry approved.
