50% OFF Eco-nuggets

23 November 2015

It seems as if winter has arrived overnight, leaving those of us with open fires and wood stoves beginning the annual search for cost effective fuel. 

Whilst logs tend to be readily available, they are difficult and dirty to store, prices are rising and quality can be variable (unless purchased from Round Wood!).

We believe our eco-nuggets are an ideal alternative. These high quality briquettes are recycled from high quality offcuts and sawdust generated in our oak frame and joinery workshops, so are eco-friendly, excellent value and extremely efficient.

For a limited period, we are offering discounts of up to 50% on pallets of our easy to handle 10kg sacks. Builder’s bags are also available.

 

 

Why choose Eco Nuggets/Briquettes?

In addition to the eco benefits of using recycled material as burning fuel, briquettes are extremely simple to light, meaning minimal kindling is needed. As the nugget catches fire, it begins to swell and break down producing a high burning temperature, in turn generating more heat into the room. 

 

These eco-nuggets allow you to have more control over your fire, unlike large logs which have a slow burning rate and low heat dispersion. When purchasing your fuel, eco nuggets are available in small 10kg bags, making them easy to stack and store throughout the winter. Pallet loads of sacks are available, as well as builder’s bags.

 

How to maximise your stoves efficiency.

There are a number of ways to improve your stoves output, including the use of a Heat Powered Stove Fan in conjunction with your eco-nuggets. The Stove Fan works by sitting on top of your wood burning stove, heating the base of the Stove Fan. The heated metal then reacts with the thermo-strip, driving the motor and spinning the blades. This pushes the warm air rising from the stove into the room, providing a more consistent temperature.

 

Can I use Briquettes in addition to Off-cuts? 

Yes. Many customers choose to use our Briquettes when first lighting the fire, to increase the room temperature faster. Logs or off-cuts are then used to keep the fire ‘ticking over’ to maintain a comfortable room temperature. Again if the fire needs a boost, briquettes can be used as and when required. Briquettes are also ideal to use with damp logs that need a boost.

Thermo-treated range added

30 October 2015

We have recently introduced a new collection of eco-friendly timber products from Thermory, including decking, cladding and flooring.

 Thermo-Treated Pine Decking

The shift in demand towards environmentally friendly and sustainable timber products has seen a number of innovations introduced to the market over recent years. These have included composite and recycled materials, improved manufacturing techniques and the development of forestry management guidelines.

Typically, these have come at a cost, both literally and in terms of quality. Increased burdens at every stage of the traditional timber supply chain often increases expense to the end user, whilst the synthetic and recycled alternatives that are offered tend to lack the authenticity of natural wood.

There have, of course, been exceptions. The Heveatech decking range we introduced last year is a good example. As it is cleverly engineered from rubber trees that have reached the end of their useful life it is extremely stable, planet friendly and offered at a competitive price.

We extended our commitment to the sourcing of such high quality, responsibly sourced products by introducing the Thermory® collection last month.

The range includes decking, cladding and flooring, all of which has been thermo-treated. This chemical free process is used to transform ash and spruce from responsibly managed forests in North America and Europe into timber with a durability that rivals that of tropical hardwoods. 

Thermo-treatment takes place in computer controlled kilns. Finished timber profiles are heated and steamed at temperatures of up to 215°C in order to reduce moisture content, remove resins and bake out the natural sugars that can cause decay. 

The end result is an extremely durable timber with outstanding dimensional stability, suitable for a variety of external and internal uses. Thermo-treatment also infuses the timber with a deep, luxurious colour throughout, particularly suited to contemporary projects.

Round Wood already offer a large number of items from the competitively priced Thermory® range, with more to be added over the coming months.

Thermo-treated decking is currently available in both ash and spruce 118mm wide boards, with a smooth face both sides. Thermo-treated cladding/weatherboard in the two timbers is also on offer, in a selection of profiles, along with 150mm and 190mm ash flooring.  All are supplied with a selection of unique and time saving fitting accessories, which can drastically cut on site fitting times. 

118mm Thermory® decking, for example, is pre-grooved for use with their ‘clip-strip’ hidden fastening system. As these strips are fastened onto joists for the boards to simply clip into, they also cut out the need for unsightly face screws, improving the look of your deck.

Landscape Show - Follow up!

14 October 2015

We have had a great response following this year’s Landscape Show, with our new Thermory range creating a lot of interest. In addition to our Thermory range, we took a small selection of statues, hardwood and bags and bags of promotional goodies. We love the Thermory collection and were intrigued to see what our fellow contractors thought, and we really couldn’t have asked for a better response.

Our central panel was made up of Thermo-Ash cladding using Thermory’s innovative hidden fastening system, giving us a chance to try out the fitting system for ourselves. It made creating a cladding board very simple, as the joists come already fitted and spaced with the fixings, leaving us to simply pop on each cladding board. The whole process took around 10 minutes.

The landscape show team were extremely helpful, as always and we look forward to another successful year exhibiting next year. Where we will have a number of pitches (one for every gnome!) to showcase a variety of products from across the Round Wood group.

 

We look forward to seeing you in 2016.

The Landscape Show

12 September 2015

Our late season exhibitions are fast approaching and we are all working hard on the last minute touches for the Landscape Show in Battersea Park, London.

The Landscape Show last year was a great success, we gathered a wealth of information and met many new clients, whom we have been working extensively with over the last year. For display this year we have carefully selected some of our cast Iron Statues and we will be showcasing our new collection of Thermo Treated decking, cladding and flooring products by Thermory®. We are sponsoring this year’s show, so you will find some hidden gems in your welcome bag – and more if you visit our stand!


 

Following our recent appointment as a UK distributor of the innovative and eco-friendly Thermory® collection, we now offer thermo-treated decking boards in both hardwood and softwood, along with a unique and time-saving hidden fixing system. As with their entire range, Thermory® decking boards have been heated and steamed at temperatures of up to 215°C in computer controlled kilns. This toughens the timber, (so achieves outstanding dimensional stability), ensures a low moisture content and develops a dark, luxurious colour. The result is an attractive board that is extremely stable, even when cut from softwoods. Crucially, Thermory® also boast outstanding environmental credentials; their processes are entirely chemical free and are only applied to responsibly harvested raw materials.

You can still apply for tickets at this year’s show, simply follow this link.

 

We’ll see you there.

SVLK certified Balau decking

13 July 2015

In line with our ongoing commitment to supply responsibly harvested timber, we ensure that all Balau Decking from Indonesia is sourced with SVLK certification.

Indonesia boasts some of the largest natural forests in the world. Its 80 million hectares are the biggest in Asia and third largest in the tropics, so it is no surprise that timber products are seen as a key export for the archipelago.

Unfortunately, potential growth in this area has not been fully realised over recent decades. 

Concerns over forestry practices and rampant illegal logging have seen consumer nations often hesitate to trade, particularly those in North America and Europe where regulation is increasingly strict.

In order to open up these markets, the Indonesian government introduced SVLK certification in 2010. Despite some initial hitches, Indonesia is now rapidly improving its level of timber exports, which include hardwood decking, flooring, plywood, furniture and mouldings. 

The ‘Sistem Verifikasi Legalitas Kayu’, or SVLK, ensures that certified timber has been legally sourced from recognised and responsibly harvested forests. It also ensures suitable forest governance, reduces deforestation and encourages environmentally friendly practices. This is achieved through on site audits at every stage of the supply chain and by ensuring an adequate chain of custody.

Significantly, the EU has deemed the SVLK process sufficiently rigorous; certified timber is compliant with European Union Timber Regulations (EUTR) through a Voluntary Partnership Agreement.

This demonstration of provenance has particularly contributed to the growth in popularity of Balau decking from Indonesia in recent years, as high end consumers are increasingly concerned with environmental credentials. They have also come to better appreciate Balau’s hard-wearing qualities and outstanding contemporary appearance.

As such, we have dramatically increased our holdings of certified Indonesian Balau over the last two seasons. It is now available in a variety of widths and profiles, in lengths ranging from 2.1m to 4.8m.

Hardwood Decking Wrench

26 June 2015

If you are fitting hardwood decking, such as Ipe and Balau, we recommend using a hardwood decking wrench - these are now available for hire.

Hardwood Decking Wrench

The hardwood wrench is a self-locking deck board straightening tool. It cam locks boards in place - applying far more pressure than other straightening methods – making it simple to install your decking fastenings.

This overcomes the slight bending/warping that all decking boards can be prone to, even on just a one person install. The hardwood decking wrench adjusts to the required joist thickness, is easily reversed and is suitable for all decking materials.

The hardwood decking wrench costs £187.50 plus VAT but is now also available to hire. The fee is £10/day or £50/week. We will take full payment for the wrench in advance and return the balance on its safe return.
