Conservatories - TimberA timber conservatory is a real statement about quality, sustainability and sympathy for the environment together with the joy of using natural materials to give your conservatory that special ambience.
We make timber conservatories in our own factory in Redruth. We work principally in Sapele mahogany, but can also use other hardwoods (such as European oak), or best quality softwoods (such as Douglas-fir) when a customer specifically wants softwood. To ensure that we manufacture your conservatory solely from renewable and sustainable timber, all our raw material is FSC (Forestry Stewardship Council) certified. Since a conservatory is comprised of a number of door and window frames under a roof, the same is also true of our hardwood doors and windows.
Using the well established ‘Mitre Master’ system, developed in the UK by Timbmet, one of Europe’s principle innovators in the effective application of timber (and similar to the Hoffmann system developed and widely used in Germany) our form of construction pulls in and keeps mitred joints tight, eliminating the problems associated with exposed end grain of timber. Joints are held firmly in place with a foaming PU adhesive and patented concealed metal chevrons inserted under considerable pressure. Consequently there is not premature deterioration of mortice and tenon joints so often seen in timber door and window frames. This system profile achieves the same ‘stormproof’ weatherproofing performance of uPVC in timber products. Using only kiln dried sustainably sourced hardwood timber for a low moisture content, we manufacture timber conservatories which will stand the test of time, both in terms of beauty and durability.
After machining and once assembled the frames receive one base coat and two top coats of a microporous stain or paint. This means the timber leaves our premises fully protected against the weather. Once fully installed we often give them a final on-site finish coat which eliminates any pencil or handling marks which may have occurred during construction.
Our frames are made to receive the industry standard 28mm double glazed sealed units
. All units are manufactured to conform with British Standard 5713 and, where toughened glass is required, that complies with British Standard 6206 and carries the BS ‘kitemark’.
