The timber tilt and turn door works beautifully to provide gentle ventilation when tilted and easy access onto balconies and roof terraces when turned on its side hinges. Juliet balconies work beautifully with the timber tilt and turn door because you can open the whole glazed elevation on warm days and walk straight onto the Juliet balcony.

Timber Species

Timber doesn’t just have a beautiful aesthetic; it also offers strength and durability at different levels to meet different project requirements. The timber options we offer are:

Engineered Hardwood

A highly water resistant timber that’s widely used for windows, doors and furniture construction. Its naturally beautiful grain makes this timber option highly desirable as it provides an elegant finish.


A modified timber that resists rot and the elements and maintains its integral strength for decades. Its highly stable natures means that coatings maintain their finish for an extended lifespan.


This is an excellent option to achieve and authentic British architectural finish to a property, especially if the property is in a conservation area where the timber is required to match the rest of the property.

Cleaning & Maintenance

All of our timber framed glazing products are manufactured with minimal maintenance requirements at the forefront of the design. However, occasional maintenance is required to keep the frames looking new and protected from the damage of harsh weather.

We recommend that the frames are cleaned once or twice a year and inspected for any areas of abrasion or damage to the surface of the timber. If a small area of abrasion has occurred, then we recommend that the affected area is refinished and repainted to protect the timber from further damage.

For advice on cleaning and maintenance you can speak to our team or read our ‘Maintenance of Timber’ page for more information.
