The Timberweld Story

Wednesday, June 28th , 2017

Masterframe Windows Ltd, the manufacturers of the Bygone Collection have always understood that when homeowners are looking for the prettiest most authentic looking windows for their home that traditional wood foiled butt jointed windows are the most popular choice.  The challenge however was that most butt joints are open ended, allowing exposure to the elements.

A new method of corner construction was required, one that was to be the perfect balance between aesthetics and technology.   This method would need to ensure that edges could be completely sealed whilst still presenting the appearance of traditional butt joints that customers associate with traditional wooden frames.

In 2005, the technical team, headed up by Ramon Rabett invented the perfect solution for their customers and this was patented in 2005 by Duchy Investments Ltd, owners of Masterframe Windows (UK patent 2 430 720 B).  The Timberweld ® concept is a method of construction which balances the aesthetics of a timber butt jointed corner with the efficiencies and accuracy from welding, rather than mechanically screwing together and gluing corners.  This ensures that the profiles are perfectly sealed with no open chambers.
