Double and Triple Glazed Timber Windows
Timber is the oldest window material. A timber window will give your home or office a natural, comfortable feel, instil style and class into your environment. For that reason timber windows are very popular. Timber windows are slightly more expensive than PVC windows and might require a little more care depending on the material and finish. Thermal and acoustic properties of timber windows are similar to uPVC windows.
Timber windows supplied by SCS are of highest quality and the latest in design and technology. The stability of our windows will allow you to manufacture in large dimensions regarding width and height – compared to uPVC windows. Due to the material properties of timber, windows can be built in various shapes and configurations. The surfaces can be spray-painted in every available colour, using different colour combinations (e.g. inside and outside of frame and sash in different colours).
The frame thickness of timber is a major factor for thermal and acoustic properties. Sufficiently thick frames provide structural strength, stability and durability. They also allow for thicker glazing units to be fitted. SCS timber windows are supplied in 3 configurations differing in frame thickness: CLASSIC 68 mm , VISION 80 mm, PREMIUM 92 mm.
Classic (68 mm)
Vision (80 mm)
Premium (92 mm)
Types of wood and manufacturing basics
Timber windows are generally manufactured from a small variety of suitable timbers. For quality windows you must count on using hard wood.
During the manufacturing process thin wood scantlings of opposing grain orientation and are glued in together (so called, multi-layer bonding) to achieve a strong, ridged and torsion-free framing system. Finger joined constructions are of lower quality, as they do not provide a smooth surfaces in the long run.
The most suitable types of timbers timber are oak, mahogany and dark red meranti as well as ash, walnut and a few other special timbers. These timbers provide good gross density and are therefore durable, rigid and very resistant against warping. SCS also supplies windows in larch, pine and spruce at a lower price.
From a sustainability perspective tropical timbers might not be the best choice. The replacement timber, which provides the same quality and properties at a better price is Accoya-wood. Created via acetylated wood modification, using sustainably grown timber, the Accoya process is non-toxic.
