  • What Does FSC Mean and Why Does It Matter?

    We are asked from time to time what does FSC means and why is it important?

    FSC stands for, Forest stewardship Council.

    The Forest Stewardship Council promotes responsible forestry. FSC certifies forests all over the world to ensure they meet the highest environmental and social standards.

    Products made with wood and paper from FSC forests are marked with a ‘tick tree’ logo. When you see this logo, you can be confident that buying it won’t mean harming the world’s forests.

    FSC Label

    All our supplier carry the FSC label on their products.

    Below are the 10 Priciples of FSC

      Forest management shall respect all applicable laws of the country in which they occur, and international treaties and agreements to which the country is a signatory, and comply with all FSC Principles and Criteria.

      Long-term tenure and use rights to the land and forest resources shall be clearly defined, documented and legally established.

      The legal and customary rights of indigenous peoples to own, use and manage their lands, territories, and resources shall be recognised and respected.

      Forest management operations shall maintain or enhance the long-term social and economic well-being of forest workers and local communities.

      Forest management operations shall encourage the efficient use of the forest’s multiple products and services to ensure economic viability and a wide range of environmental and social benefits.

      Forest management shall conserve biological diversity and its associated values, water resources, soils, and unique and fragile ecosystems and landscapes, and, by so doing, maintain the ecological functions and the integrity of the forest.

      A management plan — appropriate to the scale and intensity of the operations — shall be written, implemented, and kept up to date. The long term objectives of management, and the means of achieving them, shall be clearly stated.

      Monitoring shall be conducted — appropriate to the scale and intensity of forest management — to assess the condition of the forest, yields of forest products, chain of custody, management activities and their social and environmental impacts.

      Management activities in high conservation value forests shall maintain or enhance the attributes which define such forests. Decisions regarding high conservation value forests shall always be considered in the context of a precautionary approach.

      Plantations shall be planned and managed in accordance with Principles and Criteria 1 - 9, and Principle 10 and its Criteria. While plantations can provide an array of social and economic benefits, and can contribute to satisfying the world’s needs for forest products, they should complement the management of, reduce pressures on, and promote the restoration and conservation of natural forests.


    How does the FSC system work?

    Forests are inspected and certified against strict standards based on FSC’s 10 Principles of Forest Stewardship (see above). These inspections are undertaken by independent organisations, such as the Soil Association, that are accredited by the FSC. In order to be given FSC certification a forest must be managed in an environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable manner. This is what makes the FSC system unique and ensures that a forest is well-managed from the protection of indigenous people’s rights to the methods of felling trees. Forests that meet these strict standards are given FSC certification and the timber allowed to carry the FSC label.

    How can I be sure that the product really does come from an FSC well-managed forest?

    In addition to forest certification, the FSC system includes a certified chain of custody that tracks the timber through every stage in the supply chain from the forest to the final user. This is monitored through the invoicing process and the final label on the product has a code that confirms that the item is genuinely FSC.

  • White Primed Internal Doors London

    Over the last couple of years White Primed Internal Doors have become more and more popular. Before MDF solid white primed internal doors were introduced, the only white primed doors available were the moulded hollow doors.

    Unlike hollow moulded primed doors, these doors are nearly always solid. In most cases they are constructed with solid strips of timber glued together with an MDF skin over the top. The skin of the door is made from MDF which gives the advantage of a totally smooth finish. There is no grain to show through the paint. If the door has raised and fielded panels, the panel will be made out of one piece MDF. One of the main advantages of this is that as the panel is made from solid MDF there is no chance of splitting.

    The use of MDF is also better for the environment as waist timber can be used to make the MDF partial board. MDF is also a good absorber of sound making them ideal for room partitioning.

    White primed internal doors make it very easy and quick to paint, as the name suggests they come already primed, ready for painting. In most cases you only require one coat of quality paint. You will also find that the paint adheres to the primed MDF extremely well and forms a long lasting and durable finish.

    These doors came about due to the need for a solid smooth door that can be easily painted white. The advantage of painting a door white is that it makes rooms feel much brighter as white reflects the light better than any other colour.

    You can also purchase these doors with glass already installed in them. All glass installed in these doors is toughened safety glass.

    Go ahead take advantage of our huge range. Take advantage of our special offers.

  • Rockdoor Composite Doors Liverpool

    Rockdoor Composite Doors 

    We have been selling Rockdoor Composite Doors for many years. Rockdoor’s are extremely reliable. We admit there are cheaper composite doors out there but, we can say from experience that there is no better composite door than a Rockdoor.

    Many other composite doors require painting. You will find that these doors are very awkward to maintain. Normally the paint can chip very easily and they will require painting regularly. Compare this to a Rockdoor were the colour is actually a coloured resin which runs all the way through the panel. This means the colour will last, with no maintenance. Also this makes the panel very tough and secure. We can say with confidence that Rockdoors are the most secure composite doors available on the market today. They even “Secure By Design”. This means they have been tested by the police!

    See how much thought, work and technology goes into something we all take for granted every day of the week in creating the UK's strongest composite door. Each step in the manufacturing process makes every Rockdoor have the style, security and strength we demand. The locking system used in every Rockdoor is very impressive.

    For those people who require even more security, Rockdoor can manufacture your door with a steel plate inside the door. This gives the door even more strength.

    We can even have your Rockdoor manufactured to your exact size and specification. This means you can choose from many different colour combinations. You even have the frame in white on the inside while choosing a different colour on the outside, for example.

    The hardware is also available in different finishes, including Satin Chrome, which is a very popular choice. Of course you can choose from polished chrome, polished brass, black or white finishes. The choice is yours.

  • Internal Glazed Doors - Safety Glass

    All internal glazed doors sold by Kaybee Doors are fitted with safety glass as standard. There are two types of safety glass for internal glazed doors, they both provide the safety feature that you need and that are required by law  and has been mandatory since 1992.

    The two type of glass used for internal glazed doors are Toughened/Tempered and Laminated glass.

    Toughened or Tempered glass is 4 to 5 time harder to brake than standard (annealed) glass and is at least 4mm thick. When toughened/tempered glass does brake it brakes into very small pieces with dull edges so you can't cut yourself on them, just like a car windscreen. The vast majority of our internal glazed doors use this type of glass. See below example of our internal glazed doors with toughened/tempered glass.

    Utah Internal Glazed Door

    Laminated Glass is some what different, as its made from 2 pieces of normal or annealed glass with a layer of tough plastic called polyvinyl (pvb). This give the glass its extra strength. Laminated glass also brakes in a different manner from toughened/tempered glass. It will crack but no splintering will accrue as the glass splinter will remain firmly stuck to the inner plastic layer.
