Scotts of Thrapston manufactures all external timber windows and doors, for their market leading New Build and Refurbishment Ranges, using top quality engineered hardwood.
Red Grandis is a versatile, high performing and FSC 100% certified uniform engineered hardwood from reputable suppliers. It offers dimensional stability, superior strength, high performance and an environmentally friendly substrate to work with. This enables the production of window and doors that will perform well, look great and require minimal maintenance, for decades to come.
The engineered timber used by Scotts has been produced in the country of origin where a computerised high-tech process scans the solid sections for defects so that they can be removed. The remaining quality elements are then finger jointed and glued together to produce the certified engineered knot free (clear graded) substrate in 6-metre lengths.
This high quality, engineered hardwood is durable in its own right which negates the need for environmentally unfriendly treatment processes to provide product longevity.
Engineered sections are 60% stronger than solid sections and the benefits it provides in strength, stability, performance, appearance and its ability to accept a paint finish are significant.
