" When the windows arrived, we were amazed by both their appearance and the workmanship. We were delighted! No one seeing the house from the front can even tell they are modern windows, but we can, as the house is now warm and draught-free. " /Juliet and Ray/
"These windows enabled us to maintain the appearance of this fine old house while carrying out a pragmatic retrofit within a limited budget, alongside an ambitious extension to give the clients more living space. The cost of these windows was a pleasant surprise to the builder and the appearance was a pleasant surprise to the planning officer." /Architect Phil Bixby/
- TIMBER -
Engineered timber is made from short pieces of wood joint, glued, compressed and laminated together to form longer length timber without knots, splits and stains.
This solution makes engineered timber stronger and more less likely to warp or twist in wet and humid conditions compared to solid timber.
Main and most used softwood for our windows and doors. We are using slow growing pine from Nordic forests. Pine is soft, has medium density and is easy to work with. Knots are tightly fixed in the timber and are small in size. Being less expensive than hardwood, pine is often the choice of timber when considering your budget.
Main hardwood used for our windows and doors. Oak is the most popular hardwood, naturally beautiful, heavy, durable and strong.
Accoya is a high performance wood made through non-toxic acetylation process of sustainably sourced softwood. The natural beauty of the wood is not compromised during this process. Accoya wood is exceptionally durable, dimensionally stable and naturally renewable . Its properties match or even exceed those of best tropical hardwood.

- GLAZING -
The glass types available are extensive to suit the needs and requirements of your project.
LOW-E GLASS is specially treated with a microscopically thin, virtually invisible transparent coating on one surface. The coating reflects heat back into the building, thereby reducing the heat loss through the window. This glass is used as a standard in all our windows and doors.
TOUGHENED SAFETY GLASS is up to five times stronger than ordinary glass of the same thickness. Toughened glass is used where strength, thermal resistance, and safety are important.
LAMINATED GLASS is a type of safety glass that holds together when shattered. It provides even greater security levels that toughened glass, offers better levels of sound reduction and thermal insulation.
ACOUSTIC GLASS considerably reduces external noises, especially near busy areas such as motorways, main roads , railways and airports.
