Sustainability

Timber windows and doors that combine character and performance will almost certainly add value to your home, whilst helping to reduce energy costs and consumption. Certified timber is the most natural and renewable building material on the planet, and becoming the preferred choice for homeowners, developers and local authorities.

With developments in design and technology, our modern timber windows and doors require minimal maintenance and can outperform alternatives made from unsustainable man-made materials. Due to climate change, the cost and replacement of fossil fuels and the increasing necessity to conserve energy, using energy efficient timber windows and doors is a clear way to show your commitment to the environment and help reduce your carbon footprint. Joinery manufacturing is also carbon neutral due to the carbon sink effect of locking the carbon within the tree during its life and within the timber product afterwards.

“Timber is a sustainable resource. As long as the timber is sourced from properly managed forests and care is taken with preservative, paints and stains, timber windows are by far the best environmental choice”

Greenpeace, Installing New Windows, Dec 1998

All our timber used is FSC & PEFC certified timber from well managed sustainable resources. FSC certified timber can track its chain of custody back to the forest and is sourced from a legal and sustainable resource.

Timber has natural insulating properties and at Biker Group we are continually working on research and development to continually lower the whole U-value of our windows and doors, without jeopardising the appearance or high quality construction they are renowned for. The latest thermally efficient double and triple glazing is used and we ensure air leakage is kept to a minimum. Also, by using Engineered timber up to 25% less waste than normal timber can be achieved. Engineered timber is a stronger material than solid timber and it is also a more stable product as the laminated sections minimize the risk of shrinkage.

Biker Group shows commitment to the environment by supporting the Dales Woodland Restoration Scheme

Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust (YDMT) has been creating woodlands in the Yorkshire Dales since 1997. Along with our partners we have helped to plant over 1 million native broadleaved trees to date. There is still a lot of work to be done. In the Yorkshire Dales we have less broadleaf woodland cover than any other national park in the UK.

Our aim is to double the amount of broadleaved woodland in the dales by 2020, but we can only do it with the support of individuals and businesses like Biker Group, who care about the environment and the Yorkshire Dales. Biker Group will support the Dales Woodland Restoration programme by donating £15 for every £10,000 of bespoke joinery manufactured in 2013, helping to create beautiful new broadleaved woodlands with native species such as oak, downy birch, rowan and alder.
