The 2 vertical
pieces and 1 head piece are made from laminated timber,
the pieces of which are joined using a high-frequency gluing system.
This neutralizes the natural grain of the wood and the vertical
lengths remain completely straight, with better consistency and

the easy to assemble Kit System means a frame can be assembled
without any need for specialized machinery, tools or personnel.
The only requirements are a hammer, two nails and a handsaw. This
system means that the frame can be mounted directly onsite and
does not require specially trained builders.
requires an assembly table, tools and specialized personnel to
guarantee a well-mounted, square frame
the Amargófastening device makes it a lot easier to place
the frames. Unlike normal frames, Amargóframes come with
a pre-installed fastening device to fix the frame to the wall.
This is labour saving and ensures that the timber remains intact
as there is no need for other external fasteners. Transport is
convenient and safe because the fastening devices do not affect
transport or storage in any way. Furthermore, as they are an integral
part of the frame it is impossible to lose any pieces, a common
occurrence with external fittings.
the frame is fastened to the wall with nails or traditional hooks,
which are usually set into the wall by the builder with a hammer.
This can damage the frame as it is being installed.
Transport: by assembling
the frame onsite, transport and storage costs are significantly
lower than if the frames are supplied pre-assembled. A trailer
can carry up to 4000 unassembled frames: they take up 8 times
less space that assembled frames.
are transported to the building site already mounted; this means
that a trailer can take only about 500 frames.
