The Joinery Network comes to Stand M7 at FIT Show from 10 to 12 May at the NEC with its stunning new range of Lignum Timber Entrance Doors. With 57 varieties, the door range has been created for both joiners and installers in mind.

“At FIT Show we are focused on showing installers how easy it is to add timber doors and windows into the product mix they offer,” says Luke Piper, Director at The Joinery Network. “There’s a lot more interest in timber than ever before. We have done all the hard work creating the range, and getting all the weather and security testing sorted to create the most beautiful collection of doors.

“Both the trade and consumer brochures include all the door designs with paint colours and glass options, as well as info on handles and hardware. The complete range is tested to PAS24:2016 and has Secured By Design accreditation.  

“Visitors can also see Lignum entrance doors on our decorative glass partner RegaLead’s stand, next to us at the show, and on the International Timber stand (R8). Both are Affiliates of The Joinery Network.

“We have taken a cue from the popularity of composite doors to make it really easy for homeowners to choose what they want. There’s a huge choice of designs and colours, backed up with excellent consumer marketing.”

Luke adds: “As well as talking to installation companies, we are also looking for manufacturing partners across the UK.”

It’s definitely worthwhile heading over to The Joinery Network’s stand as it is also part of the Glass Times Passport scheme. To be in with a chance of winning £10,000, visitors can swing by to get their passport stamped by a member of the Joinery Network team.

As the growth of The Joinery Network continues, a new website has been launched to support UK joinery manufacturers looking to manufacture PAS 24:2016 Document Q ready timber windows and doors.

The new website has information on The Joinery Network’s range of fully tested, accredited timber windows and doors, Lignum, and is live at www.thejoinerynetwork.co.uk.

Owen Dare of O T Dare Joinery Consultants, and one of the founder directors of The Joinery Network, says: “We launched the new website to make it easy for joinery manufacturers to see the range of fully tested timber windows and doors that are available, exclusively, for them. 

“There is also lots of information on which tests our product range has passed. With this information, joinery manufacturers can choose the products they need, get licences for each product against each test result, and cascade the data to use as their own. This transparency means that both big and small joiners, offering a full or selective range, can fully comply with regulations without worrying about falling foul of the law.”

The new website comes after the launch of the exclusive Lignum range from The Joinery Network. Lignum is the first complete UK timber window & door system with full PAS 24:2016, Document Q, BS 6375: 1. Document L1B, and Document M certification, available to joinery manufacturers.

Owen continues: “Lignum is the exciting new window system for the timber window and door industry. Fully accredited and designed for UK homes, Lignum is perfect for joiners as a low-cost entry system through The Joinery Network licences.

“They also don’t have the expense of spending upwards of £60,000 on testing products themselves as The Joinery Network has already made that investment. It’s an easy way for joiners to show that their products comply with Building Regulations and win more sales.”

Joinery manufacturers can also find information on each of The Joinery Network’s founder partners and affiliates.

“We’ve carefully selected our founder partners and affiliates to offer expertise through every step of the supply chain. Many of them offer exclusive benefits to The Joinery Network licence holders, which we’ve featured on www.thejoinerynetwork.co.uk,” adds Owen.
