General Specification for Timber Products

    Our products are designed and built to last and have a traditional, substantial yet stylish look which suits modern construction equally as well as older, period properties.

    Although the majority of our products are  bespoke we offer a range of bifold doors in standard sizes

    Arbor sources its timber from reputable suppliers with environmentally responsible purchasing policies. The European Oak and Red Grandis are fully FSC certified and the Sapele and Iroko have PEFC approval.

    Arbor uses engineered timber for the manufacture of its door leaves and window sashes and does not use any veneered sections.  We believe that veneered doors could be prone to failure once they are exposed to the harsh British climate.

    Doors are opened much more often than windows and need to be solid and reliable.  For this reason for our bifold doors as well as all other door products we use traditional jointing methods-the wedged mortise and tenon joint-the strongest timber joint that you can have.

    Most of our products are manufactured from European oak which we oil or hardwood which is stained or painted to a colour of your choice.  We can match colours from other suppliers eg Farrow & Ball, Crown, Fired Earth, Dulux or even samples. We also offer dual finishing.

    All of our timber products are designed to take a 28mm double glazed or triple glazed unit which can be provided in a range of different glass specifications. We can also supply integrated venetian blinds –both manual and electronic-within a 28mm double glazed unit.

    All of our products are fully compliant with building regulations including U-values and air test requirements.  We can also provide solutions that offer a higher performance than building regulations call for.

    When we deliver our products to site they arrive ready to install with most of the ironmongery already in place. All of our products are designed to be installed by builders or competent DIYers and we offer a full 10 year warranty on all of our products that have been fitted in accordance with our instructions.

    All products are manufactured to order to each customer’s specification and we will be pleased to discuss your individual requirements. Please contact us for a free no obligation quotation.

    We are available to provide advice and assistance during the specification and procurement of your project.

    Samples of window and door products are on permanent display at the company’s showroom at Aztec West near Bristol and we welcome visitors during our normal office hours (8am-5pm, Monday to Friday). Weekend visits can also be arranged by prior appointment.
