Protecting against the risk of fire is one of the most significant component of any project involving a timber product

Glenalmond Timber Company can offer customers the option to have timber treated through pressure impregnating pre-supplied or with a surface coating to ensure maximum protection while waiting to be fitted on site. Operating exclusively with our partner Lonza Arch Timber Protection, Glenalmond Timber can offer their customers a full range of internal and fully external fire retardant treatments. This includes our own branded and trade marked IWS FR-Build; the market leader in timber frame fire mitigation on all building projects. These industrially applied fire retardant treatments are processed to stringent 3rd party factory controls and accredited by CATG and WPA benchmarks. This will provide consumers with the peace of mind that in the unlikely event of a fire, the treated timber will perform as required

Thank you – The help you gave us was truly amazing – you said yes to what seemed an impossible request in a heartbeat and what a difference it made – The house looked beautiful and we’re all so proud of what everyone achieved – the family were utterly overwhelmed by the sheer force of goodwill that everyone showed them

It was an easy choice to move to using Glenalmond Timber’s floor joist system. It gives an improved specification for many aspects of the build, including acoustics, ease of installation, lack of bounce in the floor as well of course as cost effectiveness. A great all-round product, it’s a lot more than just a joist and the level of service from Fraser has been a joy. Whenever you deal with people such as that, the business process becomes a pleasure

I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and your team for my order. We received it this morning and I am very impressed with the quality of the cladding and also how well it was all packaged. I would certainly recommend you to anyone who may be looking for cladding in the future.
