Environment

  • Sustainable: wood is the only naturally renewable material for window frames; our wood windows are rated A+ for sustainability
  • We are able to supply FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®) certified products made from materials sourced in responsibly managed forests (FSC® C017295). Additionally we can supply PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification schemes) certified forests made from materials sourced in sustainably managed forests.
  • Environmentally-friendly preservatives and coatings: we use the latest water-based formulations
  • Recycling: we have the latest recovery and re-use technology in our coatings plant; and all waste timber is recycled or used as biomass fuel
  • Low waste: we work with key supply chain partners to ensure a smarter way of working and reduced waste.
  • Low carbon: because of the carbon sink effect of the forests and the carbon stored in the windows, our frames are carbon negative, saving an average of 160kgs CO2e over the life of each window when compared with a PVC-u equivalent*
