glas facades Vision 3000 windows use quality natural timbers to enhance both their style and durability
Four types of base timber are available for the internal facing construction of the windows.
When the internal frames are to be painted by others on site to blend in with other internal decorations, or when budget does not allow for factory finishing then a natural un-finished pine can be specified for site priming and painting, or a standard white factory applied micro porous spray finish can be specified which would make an excellent primer for your final coats.
For a factory colour finished product, a finished pine can be supplied in any standard RAL colour. This finished micro porous spray is extremely durable and will not require any further coats within the lifetime of the window.
For a natural finish, the natural pine option can be left un-finished for a cost effective natural wood installation, whilst the quality top end European oak hardwood and Canadian pine can be specified for a stronger more durable end product with a tighter grained finish. Timber Options:

- Trees are replanted or naturally regenerated after harvesting.
- Indigenous peoples' and owners' rights i.e. those who earn their livelihoods from and/or live in the forest, are respected.
- Workers' rights and welfare are protected.
- Local employment is encouraged.
- Forests are maintained as habitats for wild animals and plants.
- Functions of forests for the protection of water, soil and climate are protected.
- Biodiversity of forests ecosystems is conserved.
- The origin of the wood raw material is verified.
