Timber Window Manufacturing Stages at Domus Arbor

The cutting of the bars
We begin by taking accurate measurements and approving all the pieces before starting the manufacturing process. The first step is cutting the bars according to the approved dimensions, while simultaneously choosing the tone of the wood and combining similar bars to ensure maximum uniformity and the best combination of all the elements.
We use professional KLAES and KLAES 3D software to create customised glazing designs and select the most suitable configuration.
Longitudinal and Transversal Profiling
Once the bar pieces are prepared, they proceed to the next processing stage in the Conturex 125 centre where they are given the desired dimensions. Our programmable digital equipment allows us to achieve high-precision positioning, ensuring perfect components coupling and the ideal shape of the item. Automatic processing of all the fitting installation details guarantees secure fixing impossible to achieve by traditional methods.
With our high-tech equipment, we minimise the human factor and create products of the highest quality.
Frame and Leaf Assembly
In the next stage, all the prefabricated parts are assembled. The structure is assembled with a special hydraulic press and then dipped into a basin with impregnating oil (Teknos). The impregnation process aims to protect the wood from rotting, preserve the colour, protect against pests, and prolong the life cycle of the product. Having undergone all the treatments, all the elements, including the cross timber, are fitted together with glue to prevent any possible structure displacements.

Polishing and Quality Control
The next step is polishing. All the elements of the product, including the frame, sash and fillets, are inspected by the same employee responsible for the quality of the finished product. The first polishing is carried out by pneumatic circular polishing machines, with manual finishing. The parts are then subject to intermediate inspection, when all the elements are blown-off to identify and eliminate all the imperfections.
The manufacturing facilities are equipped with a dust collection system that ensures that heated, dust-free air enters the workshop, preventing dust from settling on the parts in processing and allowing a perfectly smooth surface to be obtained.
Application of Primer and Waterproofing
The primer is applied in a special chamber with automatic application through saturation, followed by treatment of the joints with waterproofing agent, which prevents the formation of cracks in the wood. The sawn ends are also treated with waterproofing agent to protect from water penetration, which can cause the wood to deteriorate.
The saturation method ensures high-quality primer application, uniform absorption of the protective elements by the timber structure, and colour uniformity.
Application of Waterproofing Varnish
The waterproofing varnish is applied by spraying using a special high-pressure device. It is a crucial treatment step that is often skipped by most manufacturers, reducing the life of the respective products.
All the frames are automatically handled on special supports to prevent possible damage caused by manual handling.
Varnish/Paint Application
The next step is painting the wooden structures by spraying two coats of paint with a pneumatic sprayer. After applying the first coat, all the parts are placed into a special drying chamber, ensuring perfect drying before the second coat is applied.
The suction system provides purified and heated air inside the chamber, accelerating the drying process and avoiding particle sedimentation on the painted surface.
Product Assembly
Once the quality of the painted parts is checked and compared to the approved standard, the assembly process begins. The products are assembled according to all technical specifications, including the installation of accessories, double glazing, fillets, and the thorough checking and adjustment of their operation.
In addition, the fillets are reinforced with an additional tamper to protect against air ingress.
Quality Control
At this final stage, the structure is installed in a frame and undergoes complete testing to check its functions, operability, and the absence of sash jamming. This ensures that the windows are fully functional and ready for use. After the testing, the final cleaning and transport packaging is carried out to ensure the windows are delivered to the customer in perfect condition.
