Helping protect the environment
RK Joinery Ltd are an environmental friendly conscious business. We source all of our timber from sustainable sources and we recycle our waste products.
We will only choose those suppliers whom are ISO9002 registered, who provide Data Sheets on their products and source timber that complies with the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)
All our timber used is FSC and PEFC certified timber:
FSC – Forestry Stewardship Council certified timber can track its Chain of Custody back to the forest it was sourced from to ensure compliance as a legal and sustainable resource.
PEFC – Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification, which ensures timber and non-timber forest products are sourced with respect for the highest ecological, social and ethical standards.
Engineered timber uses up to 25% less waste than solid timber.
Engineered timber is stronger and more stable than solid timber as the laminated sections within its construction minimise the risk of shrinkage.
With the evolution of design and technology, our modern timber windows and doors require minimal maintenance and can outperform alternatives made from unsustainable man-made materials. It also helps ensure that we maintain accurate knowledge and compliance with all relevant environmental legislation, requirements, best practices and guidelines.
