Doors and Windows
 

We cut doors/windows in for you

We will cut doors and windows apertures in your cabin. Cutting these at the factory will allow them to be precisely where you have added them into your cabin. Cutting these after installation may prove difficult and if a mistake is made it is virtually impossible to correct, especially if cut too large. Installation is also difficult as access to inside of the building is restricted.
 

Cut in doors and windows yourself!

If you decide to cut in the doors and windows apertures yourself, then we will supply you with the aperture sizes required. Saves you £30 per door or window, and it means you can decide on the exact positions later.

  • Edges are sealed with a special kit
  • Very good quality, according to the European standards

Laminated wood prevents warping

  • We produce all our doors and windows with fault free laminated wood
  • Wood is kiln dried to a maximum of 12% -14% moisture content
  • The natural movement of wood is limited by the finger jointing and laminating process so that problems as warping are prevented
 

Fully adjustable hinges

  • Doors can be fully adjusted by using an allen key for the hinges
  • The hinges are supplied with decorative covers
 

Aluminium strip

  • The door has a profiled aluminium strip to protect the wooden threshold
 

Rubber draught excluders

  • The rubber draught excluders we use are, due to the unique design, the highest class of wind- and water resistance, these facts are supported by various testing reports as for example the KOMO-product certificate

Factory treatments: 
 

Painted Windows and Doors

Advantages:

  • Painted in 3 layers
  • We first prime the area in a clear base coat and then apply 2 coats of your choice of colour
  • Your windows and doors are painted in our factory. The windows and doors will be protected for approx. 5 to 6 years against the weather.
  • They are painted with the Dutch high quality brand "Sigma" . Sigma products are the perfect protection against UV radiation, water, fungi and also contain an anti-fouling protection.
 
 
Pre-treated Windows and Doors
 

Advantages:

  • A choice between 5 transparent colours
  • Gives your windows/doors a base coat against fungi and rotting processes after assembly
  • Treated on the inside and outside
  • Within 1 year you need to paint the windows/doors
 
 
Pre-treated Wood
 

Advantages:

  • The complete building is treated (flooring is an optional extra)
  • Areas that are difficult or unreachable after installation have received protection
  • The cabin is pre-treated with a base coat and ready to accept a paint/stain.
  • Your log cabin is protected against fungi and rotting immediately after installation. 
  • A choice of 5 transparent colours 
  • Within a year you will need to paint the outside of your log cabin.
  • Painting/staining will give the additional protection against rain, snow and UV-rays.
 
Pressure Treatment
 

Advantages:

  • Further treatment such as painting is not necessary if you choose this treatment.
  • Please note: after a period of time the colour of the wood will fade and turn grey/silver colour. If you prefer to leave it like this it is a matter of personal choice. The log cabin can still be painted/stained after this treatment.
  • With pressure treatment, the fluid is forced into the wood under vacuumed pressure. The treated wood becomes swollen and it is necessary to allow for a longer delivery time allowing for drying. Assembly may be harder due to the swelling in the wood. 
  • Pressure treatment can cause the natural expansion and contraction of the wood to increase slightly. Also the natural occurring wanes and shakes in the logs may be more pronounced. Gaps above the doors and windows may be initially seen but will disappear as the wood dries out.
  • Please Note: Windows and doors are unable to be pressure treated. We would recommend that you use one of the other or other factory treatments available.
