JELD-WEN, one of the UK’s leading timber window manufacturers, has given its full support to the new Wood Window Alliance (WWA).

The WWA is made up of leading figures from manufacturing and supply within the timber windows industry, who have joined together to promote timber windows as the natural and sustainable choice. The organisation has the backing of the British Woodworking Federation and General Manager of JELD-WEN’s window factory John Shaw is a key member of the steering committee.

John Shaw from JELD-WEN explains: “We got involved with the WWA straightaway as we recognised the important role it could play in driving timber forward as the only truly sustainable material. This is a superb opportunity for the industry to join together to celebrate everything that is great about timber and to show specifiers how timber windows offer the very best performance on the market.”

JELD-WEN recently supplied Oakenstead Estates with bespoke timber windows for its ‘Watersedge’ development on the seafront at Weymouth. The highlight of this development was a stunning turret, a 4m high circular wall of glass in an imposing style reminiscent of luxurious coastal properties built in the Edwardian period. Each of the individual houses also featured attractive bay windows on two levels, which enhanced the complete view of the stunning seafront location.

The company supplies a full range of timber windows from traditional sliding sash designs to contemporary styles, designer and Bay windows in a wide range of sizes and specifications.

All timber windows are available fully finished and JELD-WEN has developed its factory finishing capabilities to offer six year on stain and ten year on paint finishes. Factory glazed windows are also growing in popularity, with JELD-WEN providing a wide range of glazing options, including Low-E and self cleaning glass.

All JELD-WEN’s softwood timber windows are PEFC Chain of Custody certified, which means they originate from well managed forests.

All its fully finished and factory glazed timber windows have achieved the BSI Kitemark and all the company’s windows are certified under the Timber Windows Accreditation (TWA) Scheme.
