The above photograph shows a made-to-measure front door we manufactured and installed for a customer in North Yorkshire. We used Accoya timber for both the door and frame. The glass panels are double-glazed with quality gas-filled sealed units. Sealant strips and brushes are fitted to the door in order to minimize heat loss and provide comfort for the occupants. The door was spray painted in a Farrow & Ball colour at our own painting facility during the manufacturing process. We use traditional methods to craft doors and can replicate any Georgian, Victorian or Edwardian style to match the original doors in any period property or listed building.
We recently upgraded and double glazed the sash windows at the above property in North Yorkshire. The new sashes were manufactured in Accoya® and coupled with 18mm Planitherm double-glazed units to improve thermal insulation. The old sash cords and weights were replaced with a modern spiral balance system to offset the additional weight of the 18mm double-glazed units. We also fitted seals and brushes to the window frames, jambs and meeting rails in order to further reduce heat loss.
The windows were painted during the manufacturing process in our own spray-painting facility. Paint is essential to protect new wood and spray painting is cost-effective during manufacture. It makes good economic sense to have windows manufactured, painted, sealed and finished by just one company.
We recently upgraded all the sash windows in the above house at Harrogate, North Yorkshire. We also manufactured and fitted both the external doors. All the woodwork is in Accoya®. The woodwork was painted, prior to installation, during our integrated manufacturing process.
The sash windows contain Planitherm Total (Argon gas filled) double-glazed units. Full details of our sash window upgrade package can be found on our sash window upgrades page.
“From the Anvil” ironmongery products complete the package. We think it is important that window and door ironmongery is fully in keeping with the overall level of quality and craftsmanship.
We recently made this stand-up paddle board (SUP). The inner framework is in Accoya® timber and we used quarter-inch marine ply for the outer layer of the hull. Lots of sanding and seven coats of varnish produced the glass-like finish you see above.
Measuring 14 feet by 2 feet 6 inches, at the widest point, it is an “all around” board built for stability in the water – which makes it suitable for beginners. Sea trials were undertaken in Bridlington Bay.
