PASSION FOR WOOD
Wood is a Beautiful Piece of Nature: the ultimate renewable material with many environmental benefits over other building materials.
Wood is Clean: it emits far fewer greenhouse gases and needs much less
energy to be processed. It can be recycled and regenerated.
Wood is Warm: a natural insulator which greatly enhances the thermal performance of a home.
Wood is Strong: it has exceptional mechanical properties,
it is resistant to heat/cold and corrosion, it is durable and very long lasting.
Wood is Healthy: it creates naturally healthy living conditions, helping maintain
an optimum humidity balance, and avoid condensation.
WOOD “…something that has grown slowly will stand the test of time…”

What questions do you need to ask your professionals?
What are the benefits from a Timber – Window & Door?
Are these windows & Doors a Sustainable product?
Energy efficiency and sustainability are both important parts of the big plan, how to keep this planet liveable and enjoyable.
A few companies are the first window manufacturer in New Zealand that uses sustainably grown native timber for its windows. Due to a unique system that always combines an interior layer with a different exterior cladding they are able to use Southland Silver Beech, one of the most attractive timbers NZ has to offer. This timber alone won’t work under the NZ weather conditions, but in combination with a durable exterior shell (eg ACCOYA, aluminium, PURENIT) it is absolutely perfect.

Locally grown, native timber – Macrocarpa from New Zealand – is not everybodies cup of tea. Designwise as well as pricewise. That’s why we also offer a huge variety of other timber options.
There are also series like WOODALU and VISOLUX profiles from Germany available. The solid timber core is always made of FSC certified European Spruce. That is the most common timber for windows in Germany. On top of this some of the companies provide for their customers state-of-the-art veneer solutions, e.g. in American Oak, European Beech, Maple, Ash and many more.
The veneer technique that some of the suppliers uses is outstanding – you won’t see any difference to solid timber. It looks almost like a piece of furniture.
