Timber is a far superior thermal insulator to any other materials used to manufacture windows and doors. Timber does not form a ‘thermal bridge’, which increases heat loss, and does not allow water to condense. Megrame constantly improves its manufacturing technology in order to attain better thermal values. Thinking of care for the environment it is also important to remember that good window insulation enables people to save heat and money.
Timber windows are absolutely harmless to people and the surroundings. Our windows, doors and curtain walls are impregnated with linseed oil based agent, primed, painted or lacquered with water based micro-porous materials. Our paints are free from harmful components such as formaldehydes and similar chemicals.
Timber is the only completely natural material for windows and doors. Timber is a classic example of sustainable and recyclable material requiring very low energy consumption to process, and it is thermally efficient in use.
