5 New Product Videos

We’ve developed 5 new videos for you to experience the quality of our products without having to leave the comfort of your own home. In order to do this we’ve been out to a few of our customers sites and made 2 minute videos on the feature front door, french doors, vistafold doors, Sigenia door and the excalibur window range. In the future we will be completing this set of videos with others to cover each of our ranges of windows and doors.

U Value Certification for all our products

Working to BS EN ISO 10077-1: 2006 compliance, we are now able to offer all our customers a certificate of U Value certifation to present to building control, architechts or FENSA. We calculate the excat U Value by analysing the heat loss of each individual component (head, cill, jamb, mullion etc) and the glass. From now on, when you place an order for any of our products we’ll automatcially issue you with your certification so that you can prove the compliance of your windows and doors.

Government announces major changes to Part L of English Building Regulations from 1st October 2010

As suppliers to the building trade it is our responsibility to provide products that comply to the latest government standards. On the 1st October 2010 the government is updating the document L1B on conservation of fuel and power so that all replacement windows and doors ordered on or after 1st October 2010 must have a Window Energy Rating (WER) of at least band C (currently E) or a combined U Value of 1.6 W/m2K, and doors a combined U Value of 1.8 W/m2K max.

For info, all of our windows at Oaktree Joinery comply with a minimum of C rated window. If you would like more information, please:

Coming soon, ‘A’ rated windows by Oaktree

From 1st October 2010 we are going to be a guaranteed ‘C’ rating across all of our window and door styles. We will be using the methods suggested by Giles Wilson from Fensa to achieve this which include the fact that if using glass with a 1.2U centre pane Value will give a 1.6 U overall Window,using the very latest in technology of glass thus complying with a “C”minimum rating.

Beyond this, our most popular range, the Cottage Range, is going for the official WER (Window Energy Rating) and is already been simulated as an “A” rating. An independent audit of our systems inside the factory in regards to the WER energy ratings on our windows will take place and this extensive cross examination will cover aspects such as air leakages and solar gains as well as the U value of the glass.

This ‘A’ rating will match the government requirements for 2020 when all windows will match a zero carbon emissions target.

As an aside, once we have this classification for the Cottage window range we will also offer a service to our customers to enable them to up-specify any product in our range to  this ‘A’ rated window glass specification but will not have the offical WER A Rating until a later date.

Garden Room Extension

Garden rooms are an increasingly popular new addition to the Oaktree range. In this news snippet we look at a garden room extension in the idyllic countryside near Rode, Frome.

Working with Castle Builders of Warminster, we advised on the design of the unique roof structure of the garden room before constructing it and then producing the high quality timber windows and doors to match.

Much of the work that we do at Oaktree Joinery is with builders and property developers. On this occasion we are particularly proud to have such a strong hand in providing such a distinctive finish throughout.

37 windows in a 120 year old house

We have recently installed 37 windows in a late Victorian house in Wiltshire. The clients chose Cottage Style windows with high security PN Hook Espag Security Locks.

The fitting was completed in 5 days which pleased our clients but they were especially delighted with the 9 arched first floor windows which copied the 120 year old originals perfectly.

A month after the project was completed we spoke to the couple again who told us “We are happy with the quality and service we received and are impressed by the stainless steel hinges used. There was minimal re-decoration after Oaktree had completed the installation. Hopefully the fitting of these double glazed windows will reduce our annual heating bill.”

Myths of owning a Grade II listed property

Myth: You can’t fit double glazed windows to a Grade II building.

Myth Busted: Yes you can.

Creating a workable balance between the conservation of period buildings and the provision of energy efficient and comfortable homes has long been a dilemma for architects, planners, conservation officers and home owners. We have developed the ‘Listed Cottage Range’ to resolve this for our customers. Available with a choice of glazing types: toughened, float (annealed) and obscure, the glass complies with Part L Building Regulations for England and Wales.

Other advantages of the ‘Listed Cottage Range’ include:

  • The smaller cavity, between the glasses, reduces the required glazing width rebates and enables slimmer sections to be used
  • Low-E (low-emmissivity) glass used for the inner pane reflects heat back into the room
  • Replacing one square metre of single glazing with low-E double glazing will give you a saving of up 90kg of carbon dioxide emissions per year by reducing heat loss, and, in turn, could save you money on energy bills
  • Listed Cottage Range comes with a locking system and antique handles.

Investment at Oaktree Joinery

We at Oaktree Joinery like to think of ourselves as pioneering ahead of the competition and leaving a huge wake in the seas of fellow joinery firms in the South West. By investing in the SCM Windor 20 series machine, we now pass numerous benefits on to our clients:

  • Cost-effective method for manufacturing windows one-off or in batches
  • Quicker turnaround times for customers’ orders
  • Manufacture to any size or design within our range
  • Modern or traditional handmade styles available.

Bring the beauty of your garden inside

If, like us, you spend much of your weekend tendering to your garden, it seems a shame not to make more of its beauty during the week. That’s why we have extended our door range to include a fashionable way of doing this, with the Vistafold type door.

Additionally, with the recent reduction in timber costs, it has become more and more in vogue to opt for a garden room over a traditional conservatory. This all makes the Vistafold doors an ever more popular way to bring the outside beauty of your garden to your home.
