We only use German made paints and varnishes in our quality German engineered products. Paints and varnishes can be used to bring your individual style and design to your wood windows and aluminum clad windows. We offer a vast selection of colour choices and even offer biocide-free finishes internally to cater for those with chemical sensitivities.
Wood surfaces require regular maintenance meaning repainting depending on the weather and the choice coating system (paint covering or varnishing). Varnish should be carried out approximately every 2-3 years while paint coatings require refreshing every 4-5 years.
Timely inspection of the windows on that side of the building facing the worst of the weather helps prevent any damage before it arises.
Pine, a native European conifer is a tried and tested wood in window manufacturing. It contains resin and belongs to the group of softwoods. The raw wood has a yellow to red-brown colouring. All of our pine Face wood is of the highest knot free grade.
Larch, too, is a native wood to Europe. Among the European conifers larch has the heaviest and the hardest wood. For these reasons larch is particularly well-suited for use in external areas and, due to its high resistance, is ideally suited as a wood for the manufacture of wooden windows. All our larch is engineered providing resistance to natural movement.
The wood of the larch has a red-brown colour, becoming darker towards the centre and a yellow- white sapwood (the external healthy wood growth). The colour variation between early and late wood is especially noticeable at the core, whereby the wood has a very defined pattern.Not only do we offer Larch but we offer the wood in a range of finishes.
White Meranti or Heavy White Seraya is the more correct name of this wood type which originates in the tropics. Meranti is a resistant wood type and belongs to the hard woods. Its character is typified by a porous wood that in its raw state presents an olive-brown colouring which tends to get darker with age. Not only do we offer Meranti but we offer the wood in a range of finishes.
The eucalyptus is a native of Australia and Indonesia, is an exceptionally hard wood that is, for example, twice as heavy as pine. This particular property makes it ideally suitable for the manufacture of windows. Not only do we offer eucalyptus but we offer the wood in a range of finishes.
Oaks in Germany are very often found in forests with mixed wood types. They provide a tough hard wood that proves to have a high resistance to rotting. Traditional Oak windows are often prone to natural movement but our engineered windows are made from laminated sections of the wood that provide a much greater resistance. Not only do we offer Oak but we offer the wood in a range of finishes.
Oakwood is seldom attacked by worm damage and for building components subject to damp is an exceptional building wood and therefore an excellent choice for window production.
Spruce is a conifer which is native to central and northern Europe as well as to the European part of Russia. The wood of the spruce is rather soft, light, elastic and strong at the same time. It is used for many purposes and is also suitable for window construction. Therefore spruce is one of the most relevant wood types in construction.
It has a bright whitish to yellowish surface with a silky matte gloss and tends to get a darker yellowish brown hue when exposed to light.
We also offer walnut or cherry wood on request. Both are known to be some of the finest woods in Germany.
Walnut wood is a heavy, solid wood, which impresses with its dark gray-brown or black-brown colour and beautiful grained surface.
The solid cherry tree wood has a homogenous and fine grain structure and a reddish-golden brown shade.
Both wood species are mainly used for high-quality interior decoration.
