Timber Options

All Bereco timber products can be supplied in Redwood (Softwood), Hardwood or Oak. Only certified timber from well managed sources, will full FSC® 100% accreditation is used. Defects that occur naturally in timber are removed which allows us to manufacture a finished product that has all the benefits of timber but none of the disadvantages. Bereco supply timber products with the option of clear or finger jointed timber both have the same benefits and warranties.

Engineered Timber

Engineered timber products are essentially constructed from multi-layered, cross laminated sections of timber, resulting in high specification knot free products. which are strong, durable and give dimensional stability, longevity and high performance.

Finger Jointed Timber

Timber is cut into short sections; defects are removed and then re-joined. Finger jointed timber is used on Redwood products with a painted finish. This is a cost effective option and joints in the timber cannot be seen through the paint.

Clear Timber

Clear timber is used on all Hardwood products and on Redwood products with a stained finish. Clear faced timber ensures no grain change is visible through finger joints.

Redwood – Density > 525kg/m3

Products are manufactured using defect free, laminated Scandinavian Pine with either a clear or finger jointed surface. Redwood timber is supplied clear with a stain finish or Finger jointed where a painted finish is specified. Softwood products have a smooth finish as the timber grain is less visible than Hardwood.

Hardwood – Density > 465kg/m3

Products are manufactured using defect free, laminated Dark Red Meranti with a clear surface. Due to the open pore structure of hardwood products have a pitted effect due to timber grain which is visible through the coating. Hardwood is available with the choice of a stained or painted finish. A Stained finish will appear slightly darker on hardwood than Redwood.

Choice of Surface Finish

Having taken care of the Timber type, the next step is to protect the external surface. It make sense to provide a thorough surface protection before the windows are delivered, this saves time on site where conditions may not be ideal for painting or staining windows.

While the cost of ordering factory pre-finished products may be slighty higher, there is no doubt that window finishing is best applied under factory controlled conditions.

Paint Finish

Any RAL or British Standard colour is available at no extra cost.

This improves the overall appearance of our products, ensuring our high specification benchmark is adhered to, that sheen and translucency are maintained and the overall durability of our product is improved.

The four stage process:

1 – Fungal preservation treatment. 2 – Coloured Sealer. 3 – Coloured Paint / Stain. 4 – A second coat of paint / stain.

Glazing

There are a number of factors that separate high performance windows from others available in the market. Materials used, weatherseals, correct manufacture and installation all have an impact however; it is mainly the glass specification that dictates how well a window insulates.

Softcoat low-E Argon filled double glazing units are supplied as standard. Triple glazing and Krypton filled units are available to further increase thermal efficiency. Bereco products are available with a centre pane Ug value as low as 0.5w/m2k.

Bereco timber windows and doors can be supplied with a variety of glazing options to suit individual project specifications. We offer double and triple glazing, 4mm single & 14mm slimline double glazing with a vast range of obscure glazing patterns with varying privacy levels.
