At Patchett Joinery we pride ourselves on creating windows and doors that we know our customers will love. If your ideal windows and doors are not part of our usual range we can work with you to create the look and product you want.
With our expertise and talented timber craftsmen we can design and manufacture windows and doors that meet any specification. From complex design conditions and planning requirements, to arched windows or doors of an unusual size, we can design and manufacture the perfect product for you.
Whatever the project, we work only with the best materials to make sure you get beautifully finished products that are attractive, functional and made to last.
Like our standard ranges the majority of our bespoke timber windows and doors come with a selection of glazing, ironmongery and timber options to choose from.
Please contact one of our experts to find out how we can help you. For more information on our fabulous timber sash windows please follow the link
Using only a water-based painting system which allows timber to “breathe” and adapt to climatic changes, our finishes provide maximum protection against weathering, fungal attack and UV degradation. The water-based application significantly reduces harmful emissions and disposal issues associated with solvent based systems.
Working with our paint partner, Sikkens, we can finish in any RAL colour, stain, or match against all well known paint ranges and brands. With the ability to have different internal and external finishes, your windows and doors can be finished just as you require.
Our factory is audited quarterly to ensure that the finished product has the highest quality paint finish and performance you would expect.
Bespoke hardware maybe available for this product. Please check with our technical team for suitability.
This timber is the world’s leading high technology long life wood created from sustainably sourced, fast growing softwood in New Zealand.
The timber has an average density of 510kg/m3.
Accoya has extremely low thermal conductivity and is treated to match or exceed the durability and dimensional stability of the very best tropical hardwoods.
Accoya undergoes a propriety non-toxic acetylation wood modification process in the Netherlands that permanently modifies the wood structure to the core. This is achieved by reacting the wood with acetic anhydride which is forced throughout the body of the wood so that when Accoya wood is cut or jointed there are no exposed non-acetylated surfaces in any dimensions and does not weaken or affect the natural look of the wood.
This process negates any need to apply additional chemical preservatives. Once complete the ability of the wood to absorb water is greatly reduced rendering the wood more dimensionally stable because it is no longer digestible, increasing the lifespan of the timber.
This process also produces a harder and more consistent structure making it more resistant to denting and damage, produces a finer finish under sanding and the lack of water absorption from the paint leads to a better quality paint finish than hardwood and an increased lifespan of the paint coating in the longterm.
Due to the acidic nature of the coating, stainless steel fittings need to be used to help prevent corrosion.
Our most commonly used softwood timber for frames and sash. This timber
is made up of several different layers of dimensional timber glued and laminated together making the timber stronger, dimensionally stable and longer lasting.
The timber is engineered to remove knots and other unsightly blemishes and defects which reduce wastage compared to natural timber and is much more environmentally friendly.
The timber has an average density of 510kg/m3.
Engineered Redwood is more durable and lessens the effects of seasonal movement and shrinkage whereas natural timber can continue to expand and contract depending on the environment it is in.
After the primers and microporous water based paint finishes are applied they will last for the lifetime of the window with the correct maintenance.
Our most commonly used hardwood timber, Red Grandis (Eucalyptus Grandis, to give it its botanical name) is a South American hardwood sourced from sustainable and carefully managed timber plantations.
Red Grandis is a high grade, clear, knot free and uniform timber with a consistency of colour, appearance and workability. Red Grandis offers a legal, sustainable and fast growing alternative to uncertified Sapele or Meranti timber.
The sapwood is light grey or cream in colour and the heartwood is of a light red to pink in appearance.
Independently tested by a third party in the UK by TRADA (Timber Research and Development Association), Red Grandis achieved durability class 2 to 3 – durable to moderately durable, showing the hardwood to be a naturally
durable and fungi resistant timber. During structural testing, BRE (Building Research Establishment) tests also produced results of D35 for strength and stiffness properties and for C36 density.
Red Grandis can easily be stained to resemble Oak, Sapele, Meranti and a variety of other timbers or if left untreated can weather to a pleasing silver grey colour.
A West African hardwood, the heartwood is a medium to dark reddish-brown to purplish-brown colour and the sapwood whitish to pale yellow and of moderate hardness and weight with a density of 640kg/m3. Although some parts of the Sapele logs will produce straight grain, generally it has a more random grain providing for an attractive inter-locked or wavy grain appearance with a narrow and uniformed stripe pattern.
Sapele is often used as a Mahogany substitute due to its similar appearance but is a much harder timber and the grain and pore structure is tighter than Mahogany and provides a better surface for paint or stain finishes.
Sapele is very stable and is almost completely rot and weather resistant. Mainly used by ourselves for door cills due to its durability and resistance to indentation, we will however consider making whole products from Sapele on customer request.
