Open Panel Timber Frame

The open panel timber frame system is the industry standard frame. It provides an efficient solution compared to onsite framing construction. External finishes can be applied instantly once the frame and roof are erected. Internal finishes including plumbing, electrical and dry lining can commence once your frame is watertight.

Our open panel systems are tailor-made in our factory using high-quality CLS timber. An open panel offers versatility at both design and construction stage. Whether you are focused on thermal performance or aesthetic design, an open panel system means we can provide a high-quality system high-quality that supports your required end result.
