European Pine

The pine tree occurs naturally throughout northern, central and eastern Europe. In Germany it has been widely used to forest open or waste land for over 200 years, which accounts for the second highest proportion of wooded area in Germany after spruce. Across large parts of Brandenburg the pine is characteristic of the landscape.

The native woodland pine or common pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) belongs to the botanical family Pinaceae, of which more than 100 different kinds can be found in the northern Hemisphere. The most commonly planted variant comes from south eastern Europe, the black pine (Pinus nigra Arnold).

Pine can grow to a height of 25 to 40 m depending upon location. In forested areas they grow very straight to an average age of 150 to 200 years, although individual trees can grow to be up to 600 years old. Pine is normally felled at an age of 100 to 160 years. Depending upon location, regional variants with different properties have developed.

The heartwood and sapwood are easy to distinguish from one another. The sapwood is yellowish-white to reddish-white, the heartwood is reddish-yellow and darkens to a reddish-brown colour. The annual growth ring breadth can vary from between 1 to 10 mm. The reddish summerwood is much darker than the light springwood, the annual growth rings are clearly visible. Depending upon the direction of cut the wood has a striped (radial cut) or wavy grain (cross cut) patterning.

Pine wood is medium-weight and relatively soft. Its strength and elasticity are good. As with other coniferous woods, the properties of the wood depend upon the density of the annual growth rings: The higher the proportion of summerwood, the heavier and harder the wood.

The heartwood has good natural durability except where it is in direct contact with earth or moisture. It has a high natural moisture content, which can lead to a blue staining of the wood through fungal infection. The colouring only affects the appearance, not the physical properties of the wood.

Oak

The heartwood of English oak is a light to medium brown colour and often has an olive cast. However, there is a lot of variation in colour when it comes to the heartwood. On the other hand, the sapwood is light brown to a degree that it's nearly white.

One of the most interesting qualities of European oak timber is the fact that quartersawn sections of it have small patterns engraved in them. The wood here is often flecked, which means that using it is a really cool way to draw the eye to any woodworking project.

Texture-wise, each cut European oak is one-of-a-kind. It has a straight grain, but the texture itself is coarse and uneven. It has interlocking grain and irregular patterns within the wood fairly often, which is another way that it's unique from other woodcuts.

English oak is the perfect wood for basically any household woodworking project because of its durability. Not only is it hard, but it also is more rot-resistant than most other woods.

The workability of the wood isn't sacrificed because of this durability. Projects using English oak are made easy and effective with either hand or machine tools. The only material that it doesn't interact well with is iron. Beyond that, you can do nearly anything to common oak and not expect a poor reaction.

As you may have guessed, European oak timber comes from Europe. Specifically, it can be found in the western countries of Europe. It's most common in our homeland- Great Britain!

This timber is also found in other parts of western Europe. Specifically, France, Ireland, Bulgaria, Romania, and Germany are known for growing the trees that European oak comes from.

Glass

Windows with standard glass provide little to no insulation properties, and are the thermal weak point in buildings. In an average home, 40% of heat loss and 87% of heat gain is through inefficient glazing*.

An energy efficient window helps minimise the use of artificial heating and cooling, and makes the most of the natural climate resources. Insulglass IGU units are an essential component to minimise the need for artificial heating and cooling, reducing heat transfer by over 50%.

Utilising energy efficient glass has many benefits:

  • Comfort levels: it will be naturally cooler in summer and warmer in winter, internal drafts and condensation is reduced
  • Energy savings: lowered cost for conditioning spaces with artificial heat and cooling
  • Less greenhouse emissions: with a lower load impact on artificial heating and cooling, there is less energy output and reduced emissions
  • Noise reduction: filters out significantly more noise than standard glass

Established in 2009, BINQ is a privately owned Australian company who's influence comes from travelling the globe researching the most advanced window systems, machinery and manufacturing techniques.

Expanding its business and operations to a national, recognized brand, BINQ has two manufacturing plants located in Melbourne, Victoria, with a combined floor area of over 3,000m2, and is now Australia's largest high-performance window manufacturer.

As things have evolved, our core company values are built on solid foundations of integrity, trust, a high focus on customer service, driven by providing value, and delivering high quality products made from quality workmanship.

Our customer service is geared to exceptional standards at each touch point of the customer journey, with responsiveness being the critical driver right from the first touch point, through the sales process, to scheduling and production and after sales services.

With solid project planning, automated machinery, advanced manufacturing techniques and highly skilled joinery technicians, we consistently meet deadlines, whilst maintaining a high quality of workmanship.

Our diverse product offer consists of timber and uPVC window systems catering to a range of both residential and commercial markets in Australia, specializing in high-performing, thermally efficient, architectural window systems.

Windows have tradionally been viewed as a utilitarian product where a designer has designed a hole in a wall for a window to be installed into, whereas we view windows as much more than that. We view windows as the most important element in a building that has a dramatic impact on the design, aesthetics, functionality, liveability, and performance of a home.

We've always been very focused on the tupe of business we want to be and the type of busienss we want to be known for and it's this clarity that continues to drive the busienss everything day.

Regardless of where we've been throughout the journey, one thing has stood true. 'To raise the standard in the industry by giving customer unequivocal excellence in product and service, at honest prices', which has become the mission of the business.

At ArchiPro we recognise and acknowledge the existing, original and ancient connection Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have to the lands and waterways across the Australian continent. We pay our respects to the elders past and present. We commit to working together to build a prosperous and inclusive Australia.
