Timber has many advantages not found with many other door or window making materials.
Timber is a superb insulation material (unlike aluminium which is commonly used as a heat or cold conductor.)
Timber joinery also has the ability to be painted most colours or left as a natural finish. The ability to repaint your joinery allows you to change the colour scheme of your home without replacing your windows and doors.
Our standard materials we use in manufacture depend on design and styling but we endeavour to source timber from sustainable sources/suppliers. We can also produce with different materials and hardware systems if required.
Generally EX50mm H3.2 treated pine jambs for paint quality.
EX50-EX75mm or bigger if required H3.2 treated pine door or window sills.
Cedar, Rosewood, Sustainable native timbers (Subject to availability), American White Oak are some of the many timbers we can fabricate from.
Doors and sashes
Cedar is usually the go to material for doors but we do not stop there.
Macrocarpa, Rosewood, Sustainable native timbers (Subject to availability), American White Oak are some of the many timbers we use for doors and sashes. When selecting timbers we also have to look at the durability and stability of the timber.
Single or double glazed and the use of speciality glass.
A few of the things to decide. With our in house glazier we are happy to discuss all the options available.
At Seaboard joinery we manufacture our windows and doors using weather seals and to the NZS4211 New Zealand standard.
We manufacture Solid Timber Bi-fold doors using high quality Bi-Fold Gear.
They can be combinations of 2 to 8 doors with a maximum height of 3000mm and width of 1000mm per door.
Our sliding track systems are selected to cope with the specific weights of the doors with modern designs and glazing.
Larger doors with double glazing can require a 200kg plus track system.
