The demand for timber windows has increased significantly in all sectors of construction with new build, replacement or renovation due to the 'green' credentials of timber windows and concerns over uPVC.
At BT Services, environment issues are of high importance which is why we would always recommend the use of timber frame windows over plastic. Our windows system enables us to manufacture top quality timber frame windows with much less of an impact on the environment than the manufacture of uPVC windows.
Greenpeace have also reported the benefits of choosing timber windows and doors over plastic:
"The production and disposal of PVC-u windows leads to the release of highly poisonous chemicals which threathen health. PVC-u production involves no less than six of the fifteen most hazardous chemicals listed by European governments for priority elimination.
Timber is a sustainable resource. As long as the timber is sourced from properly managed forests and care is taken in the choice of preservatives, paints and stains, timber windows are by far the best environmental choice."
Our high performance windows are highly recommended for the following reasons:
- They exceed current rating requirements
- Comb jointed for optimum strength
- Can be manufactured in any size
- Three point espagnolette locking system for extra security
- Guaranteed section profiles for ongoing projects
- Manufactured from sustainable timber
