Feature: Outrup – Danish sophistication

At Livingwood, we’re lucky enough to work with some of the world’s finest manufacturers.  Here, we’re going to take a look at one of the best: Denmark’s own Outrup.

So, who are Outrup?

For more than 40 years, Outrup have been manufacturing outstanding doors and windows, taking their facilities from start-up right through to their current cutting-edge base of operations.

They’re all about not compromising on quality and keeping their manufacturing in-keeping with building traditions.

Real variety

Outrup’s view is that the windows a house was ‘born with’ are the best – simply, that each home has a certain style that works and that it’s always best to go with that style.

To this end, they offer a wide selection of different windows in almost every aesthetic, including:

  • Georgian
  • Victorian
  • Sixties and seventies
  • Modern
  • Villas
  • Summer houses

And a host of others.  Whatever your style of home, you’ll be able to find an Outrup window to suit.

Designed to last

Outrup focus on using woods that last.  For starters, they use a minimum of 90 per cent heart wood, meaning that they cut away the weaker areas of the tree.

What’s more, they focus on using only finger jointed wood, so all knots, sap pockets and other less stable parts of the tree are removed, leaving only the finest, strongest timber.

Once the wood’s in place, they focus on giving it the best possible surface treatment.  Outrup’s windows are all treated with an environmentally friendly material known as 2EC0.

What does this mean for you?  Simply that all Outrup frames will last for a minimum of half a decade before requiring their first coat of paint: all you need to do is give them a quick clean with a sponge and a bit of soap every now and then and they’ll stay in great condition.

This is all, of course, covered by the 5-year warranty included on all Outrup windows and doors.  Guaranteed quality, in writing.

Strong security fittings

All of Outrup’s windows and doors come with strong security fittings, offering an extra level of safety. With stronger and safety glued glass combined with PN security fittings, you can enjoy windows that simply can’t be opened externally.

Outrup also have two main security package options available, both of which can be added to their windows and doors to give you real peace of mind.
