Swartland’s innovative Ready-2-Fit range of wooden windows and doors come pre-glazed and pre-sealed directly from the factory – saving you time and money.
The benefits of being pre-sealed
All Swartland’s Ready-2-Fit windows and doors are pre-sealed with high quality water-based sealant before they leave the factory to ensure unbeatable protection against the elements. The chosen water-based sealant boasts a number of benefits, including the fact that it is an environmentally-friendly sealant, with low VOC emissions, it is UV- and water-resistant, non-flammable, lead-free, and it contains anti-fungal properties to protect the timber from fungus, such as dry rot for example. It will also offer years of protection from the damaging effects of extreme temperatures, humidity, cold, rain and sunlight. To cater for darker colours, such as Teak and Imbuia for example, the water-based sealant contains heat-reflective pigments that lower the surface temperature of the wood to reduce natural movement.
Colour of your choice
Since 2012, when this range was first launched, Swartland offered the following colour options: Teak, Imbuia, Light Oak and White. Recently 4 new colours were introduced to give our clients more choices. The colours chosen are a natural palette and include Sombrero, Ivory Parchment, Dusted Moss and Bali Deep.
No more sanding required
What really makes water-based sealant a real winner is the fact that it makes wooden windows and doors a synch to maintain in the long-term. Gone are the days when you had to laboriously sand wooden windows and doors before re-sealing them – now you can simply wash and wipe them down to restore them to their original beauty.
All glazing is taken care of
All windows and doors in the Ready-2-Fit range come pre-glazed with standard 4mm glass or 6,38mm safety glass, in accordance with the National Building Regulations. A variety of other types of glazing, such as double-glazing and Low-E glass for example, are also available on request.
Due to public demand, Swartland decided to pre-hang doors in their frames in the factory, with all the essential hardware. We have had an overwhelming response from builders who require this top-quality finish. Another exciting addition is the roll-out of adjustable frames to compensate for swelling and shrinking.
Compliance with the National Building Regulations and Consumer Protection Act
Swartland continuously tests its products to ensure that they are compliant with the National Building Regulations. In order to ensure that its windows are compliant with the SANS 613 Mechanical Performance Criteria, the Ready-2-Fit range of windows are tested for deflection, structural strength, water-resistance, air-tightness, operating forces, and the best possible energy efficiency.
