Timber products

We offer a range of timber products including hardwood and softwood

Historically all of our new joinery, sashes and sash boxes were made entirely out of hardwood, typically Sapelle.

Sapelle is a sustainable hardwood that is very durable, has a very tight grain so takes a good paint finish and is lightweight, which makes it ideal for windows. We still offer a Sapelle as an option but we are increasingly using the timber Accoya as it is a far superior wood.

Accoya is the brand name of a treated wood created via a non-toxic treatment and uses fast-growing softwood timber from sustainable sources. Which creates a high performance wood, ideal for outdoor use.

The treated wood has very high durability and dimensional stability allowing for reduced maintenance and gives environmental advantages over slow-growing hardwoods, woods treated with toxic chemicals, and non-renewable carbon-intensive materials such as plastics.
