There are numerous glazing options available to you if glass is a component of your project:  single and double glazed, various cavity sizes, toughened, laminated, obscure, Pilkington Active (self-clean), soft edged, warm edged, argon, patterned etc.


Our double glazed units exceed u-value requirements expected by Building Regulations.  We can provide specialist double glazing in cases where traditional designs need to be accomodated, such as narrow glazing bars.


Draft seals are not an afterthought to our design.  Draft seals are integrated into the doors and windows so that they perform most effectively, yet remain discreet.  


Ensuring our clients are provided with an environmentally responsible joinery product is all part of our service.  All timber products used in our joinery manufacture process and throughout our supply chain  come from Timber Trade Federation Members (TTF) who are compliant with European Union Timber Regulation (EUTR) and have signed up to their Responsible Purchasing Process (RPP).  This ensures that timber is not from illegal sources and that information can be provided on the geographical origin and for high risk timber identify the forest management in place for its supply chain.  Independent third party certification schemes of timber products (such as FSC® and PEFC) are fully supported.


Wood is a naturally beautiful product, with a proven track record and it is  well tested that good quality joinery will last a lifetime, if treated sympathetically.  The natural variation within any piece of timber is part of its beauty.
