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.

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. 

To combat lead time issues on PVCu, there’s never been a better time for installers to look at adding timber to their range, and The Joinery Network’s new Lignum suite of timber windows & doors could be the golden ticket for more profit in 2021.

The Joinery Network, the co-operative set up to support joinery manufacturers and improve quality in the timber industry through genuine certification, has launched Lignum – the UK’s first timber window and door system that fully complies with Building Regulations.

The Lignum range by The Joinery Network 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 exclusively to joinery manufacturers.

“Timber windows and doors have become one of the fastest growing home improvement and construction products post-lockdown,” says Owen Dare, one of the Founder Directors of The Joinery Network.

“Windows are no longer a distress purchase – instead, homeowners choose to improve their homes with new windows that add style and character and meet demands for more sustainable products. Timber is the ideal choice for this, and we believe Lignum by The Joinery Network is the golden ticket for glazing installers.”

Fully accredited and designed for UK homes, the Lignum range includes flush casement, box sash and spring balance vertical sliding windows, along with French, single, entrance and bifold doors.

Owen adds: “The Joinery Network was formed to deliver safe and legal PAS 24:2016 certification for timber windows and doors, creating more opportunities for joinery manufacturers.”

Window & door 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.
