For every cubic metre of timber grown, one tonne of CO2 is sequestrated from the air. Timber is therefore a 'carbon sink', locking away carbon for the lifetime of the product and potentially for many years more than that. The processing of lumber into timber batons and then into finished products such as windows and doors also utilises waste wood (sawdust and shavings) as a source of energy providing a low-cost and environmentally friendly alternative to fossil-fuelled energy.

Please pass my thanks to Paul for excellent design accuracy and supervision of installation and especially to Kevin and Michael, who were a pleasure to have around the house.

read more › Here at Blackthorn Timber Windows we believe that we supply the best replacement windows and doors in the market because of the unique combination of quality timber, great product design, top-class manufacturing standards, 4-stage preservation and coatings process and extensive independent product testing. Quality really does begin with the tree. Our redwood timber is grown close to the Arctic Circle where short summers and cold winters ensure slow growth and dense timber. To ensure optimum wood quality we specify the minimum density that we will accept for manufacture - anything less is rejected.

When replacing sash windows, no other style of window comes close to doing justice to the property as real sliding sash windows. Looking equally good in a country residence or townhouse, our hardwood or softwood sliding sash windows, offer superb weather protection and excellent insulation thanks to a design that integrates subtle double-glazing and hidden draught-seals into a traditional form.

read more › These timber windows provide outstanding weather protection, first class insulation and tremendous security. When you are looking for outstanding weather protection, first class insulation and tremendous security, look no further than our casement window ranges. Designed to stand up to the toughest weather, glazed with highly insulating sealed units and built to withstand unwanted attention these windows are tried and (independently) tested. Both the Stormproof Casement and the Flush Casement offer equivalent performance levels in all categories.

Hugely popular in northern Europe, timber Tilt and Turn windows are also widely used in Scotland but can be found right across the country. Turn the handle through 90 degrees and the window will tilt into the room held across the bottom rail by sophisticated hinges. Turn the handle 180 degrees and it becomes an inward-opening sash. Manufactured in laminated timber for strength and stability, this window has a very low-emissivity glazing unit, filled with argon gas to reduce thermal losses.

read more › Most people believe that triple-glazing must offer significant benefits in terms of even better insulation but this is not always the case. If the overall thickness (from outside to inside) of a glazing unit does not increase with triple glazing, the benefits of the second chamber can be off-set at least in-part by the reduced gap between the panes. As a result, only a very small gain is achieved. One solution to this is to replace the argon gas within te cavity between the panes with Krypton gas, which is much more insulating.

Modern stick-on films have their place but tend to be a little dull and lack the depth and texture of real glass. Many of our customers have beautiful and characterful original leaded and stained glass in their windows and want to keep this. In fact for many, the very reason that they have not changed their windows, despite draughts, high heat loss and peeling paintwork is because they didn't want to lose this attractive feature.
