In early October, Qwood was once again showing its ever increasing original range of wood composite window and door profiles at W16 at the NEC in Birmingham.
As before Qwood partnered OH Doors and Panels on a stand that displayed the full range of conservation window beads and bars, which this year have been enhanced with the introduction of innovative (patent applied for) click-in parting and staff beads for sash windows. At W16 Qwood received a finalist ‘Elements of Innovation Award’ for these new profile designs.
The partnership with OH Doors & Panels is linked with the Qwood bolection moulds for door panels. These profiles provide door manufacturers with decorative panel edgings that have all the benefits of a timber trim without any of the problems. Which is what all original Qwood composite profiles can boast – they do not rot, warp or have knots, yet they are always straight and can be painted like timber. Joiners who use them save time and cash!
Manufactured in Oldham UK, Qwood beads and bars have been exclusively developed for the window and door market, and before being released they always undergo extensive and independent tests* for painting and reversion to ensure the quality is the best. They are also the only wood composite beads, bars and trims that have both Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) FSC®-C121902 and PEFC Chain of Custody Accreditation – vital aspects of the company’s commitment to environmental sustainability.
Qwood National Sales Manager Ian Newey was delighted with the Qwood experience at W16. “We were most pleased to see so many of our existing Qwood joiners, who continue to benefit from the value of our profiles. We also met several potential new users of Qwood. At W16 we were able to assure them that there was only one source for original Qwood beads and bars, and we are now looking forward to developing new partnerships with them too.”
