Navello - La finestra italiana dal 1824

Species of wood

Grading of the wood begins where it is sourced, and continues when it arrives on site, where its properties - including the percentage of humidity - are checked.

In storage it is protected from atmospherical agents: air, water, snow, sun.

Natural impregnation is not recommended, because the absence of colouring pigments reduces the protection of the window against atmospherical agents.

The species and finishings are shown here purely as a guide; wood is living matter, and its shading is therefore subject to change.

Laminated Spruce

Conifer resin coming from the north-central Europe with straight grain and medium fine. Possesses discrete characteristics of stability, workability and durability. The plank laminated in three layers, allows to better exploit the trunk to improve the aesthetics and stability of the finished product.

Laminated Mahogany

Broadleaf of tropical origin, characterized by good durability, quite good machinability. Surface with open pore grain sometimes wavy and irregular. Glued laminated in three layers, to improve stability.

Svedish Pine

RESINOUS North-European CONIFER. Moderate stability, workability and durability.
Knags, which are its dominant trait, have no effect on quality as long as they are compact and less than 30 mm in diameter, that is, when they are firmly embedded in the wood.

Laminated Pine FJ

Northern-European CONIFER. Moderate stability, workability and durability. Lamellas are glued together in three comb-jointed layers with uniform veining to eliminate knags and defects.
Available only for lacquered finishes.

Laminated Oak

European or American BROAD-LEAF. Excellent resistance to mildew and insect incursions; outstanding surface. 
A precious wood used for naval construction since ancient times.
Oak finishings for windows

Laminated Ash

European or American BROAD-LEAF found in temperate northern regions.
Good workability and excellent mechanical resistance.
