Our superior hardware allows these doors to open and close effortlessly. Composite gaskets provide advanced thermal insulation. They are available in Full Pane or Small Pane styles, and they are SANS 613 compliant.

SUSTAINABILITY IS DEEPLY INGRAINED: We pride ourselves on our integrity and insist that our natural resources be utilised in a sustainable way. After all, we’re thinking long-term. Managed responsibly, wood is a renewable resource. We give preference to responsible loggers and use plantation-grown timber where possible. Our staff carefully monitors the harvesting process on-site. We’re also committed to reducing waste in the factory. Our recycling program uses excess wood chips to fuel the boilers that kiln-dry our wood, while our air-management system dramatically reduces harmful emissions.

BETTER INSULATION: Composite gaskets in all windows and selected doors improve your home’s thermal performance.

KILN-DRIED WOOD: To minimise natural movement, we kiln-dry our wood in perfect balance with atmospheric conditions, thereby giving you the perfect combination of performance and craftmanship for our local climes.

NATIONWIDE FOOTPRINT: Our national distribution network strives to make sure that our products are always available at your merchant or DIY store.

SANS 613 CERTIFIED: Selected doors and windows are SANS 613 certified (Mechanical Performance Criteria) and SABS ISO 9001 certified.
