At Frame-ups Windows Ltd all our products are designed and manufactured with the environment in mind, ensuring all products used are from a sustainable source.
By using sustainable timber as a material for the construction of our windows, doors and conservatories, it ensures that you the customer is provided with a product that is strong, durable and attractive plus also providing benefits to the environment.
Due to the fact that more trees are planted than felled in managed forests for the use of production, official statistics show that European stocks of unharvested trees are growing at a rate of 252 million cubic meters a year. That equates to the possibility of building 21 million homes.
This increase of planting trees helps in the process of photosynthesis (the absorbtion of carbon dioxide and releasing of oxygen by trees), it has been proven that younger trees are more efficient in this process and therefore the constent felling and replanting of trees will in turn reduce carbon dioxide and increase levels of oxygen in the atmosphere, than those more mature trees that can be felled and used for production.
All timber sustained for construction from managed forests has a positive environmental impact as these supplies are continually restocked, which is a benefit to the global population now and in the future.
All our products are protected and preserved by chemicals which have as little negative impact on the environment as possible. We aim to ensure that minimum wastage in production methods is used at all times.
