Lignum, by The Joinery Network, is the UK’s first timber window and door system with the Secured by Design Police Preferred Specification, available exclusively to joiners.
The full UKAS test registered and third party checked Lignum system includes flush casement, box sash and spring balance vertical sliding windows, along with French, single, entrance and bifold doors. Secured by Design rigorously tests security, robustness and long lasting use to ensure safe living environments can be achieved.
Owen Dare, Founder Director of The Joinery Network, says: “The Joinery Network is all about improving both standards and opportunities for UK joiners. Secured by Design status offers joiners an exclusive edge and credibility, and allows them to reach the new build market, where Secured by Design status is required.
“Secured by Design ensures all Lignum products are made to the same police preferred standards, which means joiners can select any of our Lignum Manufacturers to manufacture the range.”
The Joinery Network worked with Lignum Manufacturer JF Joinery to undergo the Secured by Design tests, and JF Joinery are the first of many manufacturers who are set to undergo the stringent audit.
Doug Skins, Development Officer at Secured by Design, said: “I am delighted that The Joinery Network have joined Secured by Design, with their Lignum system of timber windows and doors having achieved Secured by Design’s Police Preferred Specification. This is great news for small and medium joineries who wish to produce Secured by Design windows and doors and I look forward to working with The Joinery Network over the coming years.”
The Secured by Design Lignum system has also been tested to PAS 24:2016, Document Q, BS 6375: 1, Document L1B, and Document M certification, offering joiners the most superior range of timber windows and doors.
The Joinery Network, the co-operative set up to support joinery manufacturers and improve quality in the timber industry through genuine certification, designed and developed the Lignum range to fill the gap in the market for fully certified timber windows and doors.
