KVT frames

KVT frames

KVT (‘Kwaliteit van Houten Gevelelementen” or “Quality of Wooden Façade Elements”) is a publication by the NBVT (Dutch Association of Joineries). The KVT includes general requirements for the manufacture of wooden façades on the one hand, and design and implementation guidelines on the other hand.

WEBO is specialised in manufacturing KVT frames. WEBO does not just manufacture its standard products in accordance with the KVT, but custom frames too.

Carpentry, a precise task

Everything that has to do with carpentry, must be done exactly right. This will help prevent problems in the future that no one wants to have to deal with, such as:

  • Unloading and storage
  • Mounting
  • Adding moisture-resistant coats
  • Placing glass
  • Linking frames
  • Wind and waterproofing

KVT frames create clarity

Although suppliers can often have their own, unique approach, this approach must be suitable for KVT frames. For example, with regard to unloading and storage, we recommend that the frames be delivered shortly before they have to be installed. If that is not possible, clear requirements must be in place for the storage of the woodwork. After all, wind and rain may reduce the quality of the frames.

Guidelines for each step in the process

The KVT Frames contains guidelines and regulations ranging from wood type specifications to installation instructions. It’s important for you to know that the quality of your frames is in good hands at WEBO.
