Walford Timber has been a family-run business for 78 years, so we feel a sense of duty to ensure it flourishes well into the future. As part of this mission, we are proud to have placed sustainability first. Here are the top five reasons why Walford Timber is the choice provider when it comes to sustainable outdoor timber products.
1. Carbon Negative Materials
In an age when plastic dominates many markets, we’ve remained steadfast in offering a natural, biodegradable, renewable, and recyclable alternative – timber. Responsibly harvested timber supports resilient forests, promotes biodiversity, enhances soil quality, and contributes to better air quality. Our wood absorbs more carbon from the atmosphere than is emitted during our manufacturing process.
2. Forest Stewardship Council® Certification
We’ve obtained the Forest Stewardship Council® Chain of Custody Certification which ensures all our wood is sustainably sourced. We are proud to source the timber for our core fencing products entirely from within the British Isles, where stringent forestry regulations are upheld. This not only reduces our carbon footprint due to low transportation distances, but also ensures our timber comes from responsibly managed renewable sources.
3. Efficient Manufacturing
Our manufacturing plant, nestled in the heart of the Wye Valley, is extremely energy efficient. Nearly half of our energy usage is generated by solar panels, reducing our reliance on fossil fuels. Additionally, because we handmake all of our products on site, we can minimize waste and maximize efficiency. By turning traditional waste products into alternative products, we constantly reuse and regenerate materials. This means less waste in landfills and fewer emissions into the atmosphere.
4. PermaTimber® and Longevity
Our proprietary pressure-treatment method, PermaTimber®, provides the ultimate protection against wood-eating insects and fungal decay. We pioneered the now industry adopted technique of incising ground-contact timber, enabling a far greater uptake of preservatives. This allows us to offer a remarkable 15-year guarantee on all PermaTimber® products.
5. Durability Lead Design
At Walford Timber, we produce high-quality, durable outdoor furniture designed to stand the test of time. We use the highest quality joinery components, combining timeless design with durable construction for unbeatable quality. By prioritising the longevity of our products, we reduce the need for replacements and repairs and, in turn, decrease overall consumption for our customers.
