Qwood is helping sliding sash window conservation and preservation by providing new, enhanced manufacturing solutions for the timber window industry. The company’s new sliding sash conservation range of click-in parting and staff beads embodies a unique blend of technology with traditional appearance.

The latest innovative solution from Qwood is a patent pending click-in system for sash window staff and parting beads. 

The key benefits of the new 20mm staff and 8mm parting beads include: easy to install – cut a groove, fit the clip channel, and click the beads into place; they are long lasting; and they are rot-free thanks to Qwood’s composite material which conserves and prolongs sash window life.

The new system is also a secure, one-way method to remove beading for maintenance when required, without damaging the window and beading. Also, there are no unsightly troublesome pin holes to fill.

The Qwood conservation range, with integral draught-proofing sealing channels, includes: internal bars – ovolo and lamb tongue bars; external bars, putty line bars; staff beads – standard and the new click-in staff bead; parting beads –standard and the new click-in parting bead.

A spokeman from Independent Joinery, explains: “Since I started using Qwood beads, I haven’t had to do any remedial work on my windows post installation. Now I am able to move away from uPVC parting beads, which is great for my customers.”

Qwood conservation click-in staff and parting beads help to make the fabrication or repair of timber sash windows faster and more efficient. Not only do they enhance the appearance, but with less maintenance they endure the elements longer and better than traditional timber beads.

Qwood will be exhibiting at W16 being held at the NEC in Birmingham in October. The company also offers a ‘try me’ pack for customers to sample the product.
