Wood:

Frames, mullions and transoms are made of FSC®-certified pine from North-European forests. During production, all windows and doors are treated with the 'System 2 ECO' (water based system), which comprises eco-friendly impregnation, painting and finishing, ensuring long life. Every layer of the surface treatment contains a water-based mould and fungicidal agent. Where any timber is even partially exposed to the external surfaces, a minimum of 60% heartwood is used. Wood is treated with a clear lacquer to enhance the warmth of the natural grain, or painted in one of a range of RAL colours to match the interior decor. Gloss level - 20%.
