As standard we offer window frames in pine wood or meranti.
Due to its price and availability this is the most common coniferous species used in the manufacture of windows and doors. Considered one of the longest living plant species on Earth. The wood taken from trees aged 80 – 120 years offers the best properties. It is characterised by a density of approximately 450 – 550 kg/m3, which ensures good properties in terms of both compressive and tensile strength.
Pine wood is relatively long lasting and durable, yet flexible and easy to process, and offers perfect thermal insulation. A high resin content makes it resistant to damage resulting from moisture, but at extremely high temperatures it can pass through the paint coating. The colour of the wood is bright and it can be effectively covered with opaque and stain paints.
The wood for the connoisseur. The jewel in our manufacturing crown since 2008. A hard wood from a broad-leaved tree coming mainly from the island of Borneo. Its minimum density varies between 580 kg/m3 and 850 kg/m3. It is used mainly for the manufacture of select windows and doors in furniture making, boat building, construction.
It is a wood that offers very good resistance to water and other atmospheric factors, and is highly valued because of the beautiful wood grain and its physical properties.
Exotic wood from broad-leaved trees from Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines. The type of wood most commonly used by manufacturers from among the exotic species. It comes in several varieties, of which the white and red varieties are the most popular. The density of meranti is strongly dependant on the species and reaches values ranging from 300 kg/m3 to 800 kg/m3. It is worthwhile to find out what is the density of the wood, as it affects its parameters.
Our company offers species with a density greater than 450 kg/m3. In general, this type of wood offers high resistance to moisture and, therefore, low probability of cracking. It is durable and robust. It demonstrates very good thermal and acoustic insulation characteristics. It has a highly characteristic wood pattern, which looks very impressive when coated with transparent paint. An analysis of basic physical and mechanical parameters indicates that meranti wood shows greater resistance to weather phenomena than pine. Interestingly oak is not far behind.
Meranti offers better technical parameters than pine in such areas as shrinkage and swelling by 39%, static bending resistance by 41% and hardness by nearly 40%. The resistance of exotic wood species to shrinkage and swelling stems from their anatomy. These are heartwood species with a wood that is characterised by low water permeability. Its red-brown colour lends the product a certain elegance and a warm ambience to the interior.
Windows from meranti wood will be appreciated by all those looking for exotic beauty combined with high quality and durability of the products.
