The environmental benefits of structural timber buildings are becoming more apparent and thus enjoying a revival, Glenfort is leading the way in combining the highest quality craftsmanship with stunning traditional and contemporary designs. At Glenfort, all of our timber comes from managed woodlands, where two or more trees are planted for every one felled. Our timber is sourced from mills using sustainable and renewable forestry practices giving you the satisfaction of owning an ecologically friendly structure. Our three main timbers are: Oak, Douglas fir and Glulam are all ideal materials for frame construction and provide a sustainable source of raw material.
Oak wood has it’s own distinct grain and texture. The assortment and complexity of patterns in the wood gives it an appearance that is very distinct from other hardwood, such as cherry or maple. Our oak timber can display prominent rings, vertical strips, wavy figures, intermittent flecks, ray-like projections or any combination of these patterns. Oak wood is strong, hard and very resistant to moisture and the elements. Our designers and craftsmen have found it to be ideal for building support beams because of its durability – this can be seen in many historical houses and buildings built from oak during the 1800s that are still standing over a century later. Oak was also has been a favourite of shipbuilders of old because of its incredible strength and resistance to rot and decay. Douglas fir is are naturally a very light brown in colour, are again favoured by our craftsmen for making strong frames indoors. The grain on Douglas are straight with little to no waves, this type of timber has a beautiful fragrance and is very resistant to moister and the elements
