Hardwoods

Craftsmanship in oak

Oak has always been symbolic of strength and durability. It also has a fascinating grain structure and the ability to weather beautifully into shades of grey if left untreated.

Through their long experience in woodworking, Bramhall have the ability to use the qualities of the timber to the full, creating street furniture which can be traditional or contemporary in its appearance.

As each piece is made from natural timber using handcrafted methods, no two items are exactly identical, a refreshing difference from many mass produced products.

Weathering

As a durable hardwood, oak does not need to be treated with preservatives when left in the open, although stains can be applied if necessary to create a desired effect.

In an outdoor environment, oak is liable to "checking" resulting in the appearance of splits in the grain. These will open and close according to the dampness or dryness of the atmosphere.

Green Oak is more liable to checking than fully seasoned timber, which is much more stable. The movement of the timber is taken into account in our design of the product by using optimum sections and good jointing techniques.






PEFC Accreditation

Bramhall 1840 are committed to using timber from environmentally sustainable sources and are certified under the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC).

The PEFC provides an assurance mechanism to purchasers of wood and paper products that they are promoting the sustainable management of forests.

The scheme ensures an independently accredited supply chain where the wood used in products can be traced back to sustainable managed forests. The programme has a number of important aims which include encouraging biodiversity in nature whilst ensuring that forestry is economically viable and socially beneficial.
