Timber is the pinnacle of sustainability. At Kensington Sash Group we believe that the only way to a sustainable future is through the use of timber in construction and production in place of non-renewable materials such as UPVC. Kensington Sash Group use only FSC® 100% wood sourced from FSC® certified forests. By buying timber windows and doors from our company, you are helping to promote growth of the forest in Europe and are protecting our planet from deforestation and climate change. This is why 90% of products that we install are manufactured using timber.
FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council) certified is an international organisation dedicated to promoting responsible management of the world's forests. The certification is recognised as the benchmark for responsible forestry. Please read the facts about this organisation on the right for more information.
