STM MOGANO are windows and doors in oak
Oak is a beautiful raw material completely without unsightly cracks and knots. We exclusively use oak from industrially cultivated plantations in our production, where new trees are replanted after the trees are felled.
STM’s oak is specially sorted according to our own regulations for colour, weight, etc. (density of at least 550 kg per m3).
Our oak components come standard with wood bottom glazing beads, but can also be delivered with bottom glazing beads in powder coated brown aluminium. The high content of oils and salts makes oak wood an ideal choice for exterior windows and doors.
Oak components from STM come standard with a base oil that contains Chinese wood oil and linseed oil.
Facts about oak
The oak used by STM WINDOWS A/S is specially sorted according to our own regulations for colour, weight, etc. Oak has a naturally high content of various oils and salts, making it highly resistant to rot and mould.
So it requires minimal maintenance, just the application of wood oil. The wood “weathers” with oil, so the surface becomes gray and dull to look at when maintenance is needed.
The standard surface treatment for oak is a 2-step treatment of pigment and then a clear oil treatment.
