KJM announce partnership with George Barnsdale
KJM have become an approved partner with George Barnsdale after seeking another supplier for their timber windows, doors and conservatory range.
Mark Pearce KJM's Managing Director said "We have been looking for another supplier for our timber range for a while. George Barnsdale offered a historic, traditional and a contemporary range manufactured from engineered softwood, Accoya, Grandis hardwood and European Oak. They also offered us some of the best warranties in the industry including a 30 years guarantee against preservative failure and most other parts covered for 10 years. We completed our search for another supplier after a visit to them to look at the manufacturing process and other elements of their supply chain. We were impressed by every aspect of the operation"
Mark continued "George Barnsdale’s wooden doors and windows are expertly designed and crafted from only the highest quality Forest Certification System (FSC) timber, and tailored to perfectly complement our customers homes. They have 135 years of experience in delivering timber windows and doors that are sensitive to both the architecture and period of the buildings they are installed into. All Geroge Barnsdale products are tested to the highest levels of performance and security and are certified by Bluesky, who independently verify the products. They are always innovating and testing in their state-of-the-art research and manufacturing facilities, ensuring the best quality timber window and door products are delivered to our customers"
George Barnsdale's coporate brochure states "Timber is at the heart of everything we do, so we’re naturally meticulous in our selection. We’re also passionate about sustainability, using only FSC® certified timber from sustainable sources. We select only those timber species that provide a stable base for our advanced coating system, delivering a long lasting, low maintenance finished product. Frames and window sashes are manufactured from Engineered Redwood, free of knots and imperfections. External mouldings and sash window linings are created in Accoya®, which has earned the highest durability rating of any timber, surviving for 25 years when submerged, uncoated, in fresh water. Specifically for doors we use Grandis Hardwood within the complete product due to its clear faced attractive grain pattern, which exudes the natural beauty of timber. We can also supply our windows and doors made completely from either Grandis, Oak or Accoya®."
