Why choose timber windows?
Types of timber
Timber may be a traditional material, but at Everest we apply the latest technology to ensure a truly impressive performance.
There are two kinds of wood used to create an Everest Timber Window – Softwood and Hardwood – both of which come with the same guarantees and are Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) accredited.
Everest softwood timber windows are made from European Redwood and are available in a range of painted finishes.
Hardwood frames are able to be stained, which really highlights the beauty of the natural grain. These windows are made from Red Grandis wood.
Making our timber windows
All the timber Everest use is engineered to create a solid construction. Engineering means that the timber goes through a lamination process, where the timber is specially bonded to add strength. This makes the engineered timber resistent to twisting, which a natural material would otherwise want to do.
The windows are painted and finished to an exceptionally high standard and we use the latest paint technology to achieve a smooth finish.
For our softwood, we use finger jointing technology. This means by sealing sections of timber together with finger-like joints we remove the natural occuring knots from the timber.
