PINE – a soft wood white or pale yellow timber which being light weight and straight grained, it is the most popular timber occurring in Europe, it is not as dense as hardwood but resists shrinking and swelling very well
MERANTI -a hard wood which comes from Southeast Asia, it has relatively good outdoor durability and strength, can be found in low-lying rain forests in mountainous regions, comparing cost effectiveness it offers best option for hardwood
OAK – a hard wood that can be found in most countries of Europe, prefer dry soil rather than damp areas, comparing to meranti it is slightly stronger
Due to increased exposure to weathering (both rain water and UV day light) all cill and cill extensions on casement windows are manufactuared from hardwood.
