What is engineered timber?

When it comes to looking for the perfect windows and doors to suit your project, you may find a common factor in wooden products is the use of engineered timber over traditional solid wood. Wooden windows have previously gained a reputation for being high maintenance and prone to weathering over time, however since the introduction of engineered timber, these factors are a worry of the past as engineered timber is stronger, stable and more durable than alternative solid wood options.

The process of making timber involves scanning lengths of wood to find natural imperfections like knots and sap, which are then removed, meaning that only the best pieces of timber are used. The lengths of wood are then joined together with opposing grain resulting in overall increased strength of the material, ideal for products like windows and doors where security is key. Additionally, this process also heightens the stability and durability of the wood since the material is less likely to warp and twist over time, therefore increasing the general lifespan of the products.

In addition to its physical assets, engineered timber is also a greater environmentally friendly option opposed to other materials frequently used to make windows and doors, such as uPVC. Timber is a renewable and sustainable material, especially when sourced from certified suppliers, and unlike solid wood where lengths of defect-free timber are required to be sourced, engineered timber minimises this process and decreases the total amount of wastage. Likewise, wood is a recyclable material, therefore any waste that is generated – both from manufacturing processes and from replacing old products, can be recycled rather than being send to landfill.

At Timbertherm Windows we only use engineered timber to manufacture our products, sourcing our timber from FSC certified and sustainably managed forests, therefore allowing you peace of mind that not only will our strong and beautiful products keep you safe and secure, but that they are also contributing to a greener future.
