Available in easily machinable sheets with a cork core, the Oak TEC sandwich panels combine cost efficiency with low wastage, and provide a flawless product with added dimensional stabilily far greater than that of traditional solid wood. In addition, when used in the external solid doors, the TEC panels meant the doors were perfectly able to meet demanding new EU U-value regulations.

The house encompasses 29,000sq ft and the owner specified oak as his preferred material of choice for the doors. Warwick Aldersley, managing director of Meer End Stairs, suggested TEC (Timbmet Engineered Components) Oak sandwich panels as a solution in order to minimise the inherent movement that the use of Oak would cause over time.
