QPSL are now able to offer Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) and PEFC® Chain of Custody for Qwood™

QPSL, the UK’s original manufacturer of WPC window components, are now the first UK Company to offer chain of custody for both Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) FSC®- C121902 and PEFC® for their QWoodTM brand.

QWoodTM has been specially developed for timber casement and sash windows. The range includes head drip beads, glazing bars, parting beads, staff beads as well as glazing and drip beads with clips.

FSC® and PEFC® are international organisations dedicated to promoting sustainability of the world’s forests. QPSL can now supply QWood with both FSC® and PEFC® chain of custody certification, a UK first to the timber window industry.

“The benefits to the joinery industry are enormous. QwoodTM represents a significant product development for the industry, offering a highly durable, fully tested and sustainably certified alternative to traditional timber beads and profiles.” (Angus Brogdon, Managing Director)

QWoodTM key benefits:

  • Will not rot, bow, twist, split
  • Consistently straight
  • Smooth surface and fantastic paint retention qualities
  • Work with standard wood working tools
  • Tried, fully tested and proved within the timber window industry

“QWoodTM has a long history of firsts; first WPC product on the market, first to offer recycling of scrap, first to be manufactured under a ISO14001 and ISO9001 environment and now the icing on the cake the first to be able to offer both FSC® and PEFC® chain of custody to our ever growing customer base” (Simon Crossley, Product Manager)

Last month QWoodTM sold its 1,000,000th metre and they have also just launched a door profile.
