The Joinery Network is all about improving both standards and opportunities for UK joiners. It is a co-operative of leading industry suppliers, bringing joinery manufacturers the expertise, practical support and certified products to grow their timber window and door businesses. 

Whether it's PAS 24 certification, advice on improving efficiency, a quality hardware supplier, finance for tooling or help on how to sell more products, The Joinery Network puts companies directly in contact with practical people who have the know-how and tools to move them forward. As a system house The Joinery Network supply a number of Secured by Design approved Timber manufacturing companies. 

The Joinery Network’s Lignum system of timber windows and doors have achieved Secured by Design’s Police Preferred Specification. Designed to suit UK housing styles, the Lignum™ system includes timber flush casement windows, timber box sash windows, timber spiral balance sash windows, timber tilt & turn windows, timber single doors, timber French doors, timber double doors and timber bifold doors.  Lignum™ has been fully tested to comply with Building Regulations Document Q for new build housing. The timber windows and doors are certified to stringent PAS 24:2016 / 2022 standard for security and BS 6375:2015 Parts 1 & 2 for weather tightness. 

Lignum™ is available to any joinery manufacturer.

Luke Piper of The Joinery Network, said: “There is no doubt in my mind that the timber industry has huge opportunities on the horizon but we must embrace the changes in legislation that have already happened and those changes that are happening imminently, if we are to capitalise on the opportunities being presented to us. 

“Being a Timber systems house under SBD ensures that The Joinery Networks Lignum timber window and door manufacturers really can make the most of every opportunity that comes our way, having every required box firmly ticked”. 

Doug Skins, Secured by Design said: "I am delighted that The Joinery Network have renewed their membership with Secured by Design.  Their Lignum™ system is a complete timber window and door system. They work with the major brands of hardware and ironmongery, as well as the best joinery consultants, assets finance experts, a manufacturing software company, and an R & D tax credits company to support businesses to be more efficient, reduce waste and improve all aspects of joinery businesses”.
