European Designs and Products - locally manufacturedclose

We have largely based our window and door designs and functions upon what the European market offers - but incorporated our own designs and twists to better suit them to the North American customer. We offer many of the same product types often imported from overseas, but hand crafted on Vancouver Island - and often to higher quality and performance standards than those available from Europe or anywhere else in the world.

Customization we stand behindclose

Fenstür has the technology, machines, and expertise to build highly customized products. Aside from custom wood species or sizes, we can do raker, slant, and round shapes, special types of glass, various hardware types and materials (brass, steel, stainless steel, aluminum, fiberglass etc.), aluminum clad exteriors, and more - all in house. Its very simple at Fenstür, if we feel that we cannot stand behind a product we produce, or don't feel proud to identify it as one of our own - it will never leave our facility.

Manufacturing process

Sanding process

Sourcing, cutting, and prepping

Every door and window starts in a forest.
Vancouver Island offers some of the finest softwoods in the world: Douglas fir, red cedar, red alder, and hemlock. The Province of British Columbia has strict forest management policies, ensuring trees are sustainably harvested and the surrounding ecosystems are protected. Nearly all of the weight in wood is made up of carbon - absorbed from the atmosphere and now stored in your window and door products - products which further save emissions with their high performing design properties to keep you warmer in the winter, and cooler in the summer.

Machining

The first step in producing windows and doors is to machine lumber into component pieces. Using state-of-the-art machinery, every component is precision-cut to a specific according to the design settles upon. Our technology grants us ultimate flexibility in design, while maintaining consistency – and 0.1mm repeated accuracy. We are equipped to process single components up to 6m (20ft) in length for clean lines without interruptions.

Hardware

The final production step is fitting your door or window with customized hardware. Hardware plays an essentially role in the stability and longevity of doors and windows - as well as providing the interface for you to use them. We aim to balance function with aesthetic appeal and maintain the same quality standards with our fittings as with our doors. When a window or door is complete and checked for fit and function, the product is then packaged and ready for shipping.

Finishing and assembling

Before assembling your products, component pieces are professionally finished “impregnated". Our technology finishes 100% of surfaces – even the parts you can’t see. This is achieved by immersing machined components in tanks of a special finish - as opposed to spraying on stains and top coats after the product is fully assembled.
