At this years Timber Expo, International Timber is focusing on giving customers a more interactive experience. Although the stand will still be packed full of useful information and manned by experts from throughout the business, it will also host a few surprises.
This year we have focused on making the visitor experience more enjoyable, says Managing Director, Tony Miles. Along with displaying a large selection of our product range including the latest addition Accoya® Face Laminated Component, we are also introducing a couple of new elements to the stand which are sure to get visitors talking.
We all love timber, thats why we work in the timber industry. Its versatility and ability to create a warm finish makes it one of the most appealing materials available to the construction industry. However, in the past it had fallen out of favour for elements such as windows and doors, being pushed to the back by uPVC, which was perceived as being more durable and easier to maintain, but this is no longer the case. Wooden frames are making a comeback thanks to modified timber.
At this years Timber Expo, International Timber will be displaying the latest addition to its product range Accoya® Face Laminated Components. This exciting new addition to the UK window and door market allows architects and specifiers to create an elegant finish without compromising on performance and at a competitive price.
Available exclusively through International Timber, Face Laminated Component has gone through stringent delamination and dimensional stability tests at the primary German window and facade institute, ift Rossenheim. This testing pushed the component to its limits by exposing it to both extreme moisture and heat and it successfully passed all tests.
The component is formed from Accoya® wood, laminated to the external weather face of the engineered Redwood components. This ensures the window frame or door has a contemporary, smooth finish with the ability to withstand the elements and has Class 1 durability on the external face. Due to the modification technique undertaken, the thermal conductivity is also 30% better than hardwood, which is of course another reason why modified timber windows and doors should be a serious consideration when renovating or specifying a new build.
Timber Expo is a good opportunity to meet customers, discuss upcoming projects and advise them on the best timber for the job, adds Tony. As well as any legislative issues they may need to be aware of in a relaxed, informal environment and we look forward to seeing old and new customers there in September.
