Timber Sealants

All end grain is sealed and cleaned with deep penetrating preservatives specifically developed for use on the highly absorbent edges of sawn timber, protecting against all penetrating humidity.

Joint Sealants

Protective V joint sealant, highly resistant to weathering thanks to its flexibility and easy connection with primers and paints, is used on all Bereco products offering seamless finishing at window intersections.

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.
