 Using the finest timber from FSC® certified forests

Good for the environment

It might be nice to know that when choosing energy efficient windows and environmentally friendly doors you are choosing products that:

are ‘Carbon Neutral’

come from FSC certified forests

are naturally renewable

We’re proud of our products and we’re proud of what they stand for. All of the Redwood timber we use is sourced from certified Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) forests in Northern Scandinavia. This means you can be sure the timber used to make your windows and energy efficient doors has come from a sustainable and responsibly managed source. Unlike any other window material, timber can be traced to the original forest in which the wood grew.

Our timber frame windows are also carbon neutral, which means they absorb more CO2 from the atmosphere than they produce. Small things to some, but hugely important to us.Creating products that have a positive impact for you and your home as well as the environment is fundamental principal of our business and that of our parent company, Inwido Group – Northern Europe’s leading supplier of innovative, environmentally friendly, wood-based windows and doors.
