Double Glazed Hardwood Windows, Doors & Conservatories

HardwoodHardwood has its niche in the market as a material for the construction of double glazed windows, doors and conservatories. Perhaps its greatest asset is the flexibility it offers the designer. Individual features can be carved into the timber frames and added to a hardwood conservatory structure which will make it truly unique.

Planners frequently specify timber for double glazed frames and structures in conservation areas and the increasing popularity of Town Design Statements can be expected to reinforce this trend.

For commercial applications, aluminium may be simpler and more versatile to work with but hardwood frames and structures are very well suited for domestic double glazing where empathy with a period building is a priority.

Period Detail With Latest Double Glazing Benefits

A very popular choice to retain the true character of a traditionally built house, timber framing allows the combination of authentic period detail with the latest double glazing technology.

Timber sliding sash windows are a popular feature of older houses and the flexibility of timber truly comes into its own when replacing window and door frames which through structural movement or original construction, are not perpendicular in shape.

Hardwood For Harmony

When issues of authenticity are paramount, for example in conservation areas, or listed building renovation, or even a home owner’s selection when replacing double glazing, hardwood is a serious contender. This is particularly so if features such as sun rooms, summer houses, poolrooms, orangeries and conservatories are being considered. All must be sensitively blended with the double glazed windows and doors and compliment the overall appearance and presence of the building in its surroundings.

Hardwood For Sustainability

In addition to the aesthetic and practical reasons for its use, there is another very compelling reason for selecting hardwood timber as the material used in the construction of double glazing frames. Environmental sustainability is becoming an increasingly important consideration in the selection of double glazing frame materials. Whilst PVC, hardwood and aluminium each has advantages and drawbacks, hardwood probably cores best for use in domestic double glazing applications such as windows, doors and conservatories.
