Hampton Conservatories Environmental Policy
Our Environmental Policy
Hampton Conservatories is committed to acting in an environmentally responsible manner. We appreciate nature and are dedicated to delivering design solutions which ‘bring the outside in’.
Throughout the manufacturing process for our structures, we only use timber which has been approved by the Programme for Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) and Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC). Both of these organisations work to ensure that forests are protected by sustainable forest management, through environmental, economic, legal and socio-cultural contexts. Our Managing Director, along with our trusted long standing timber supplier, have personally inspected the forests and sawmills where our timber is sourced.
Each of our timelessly-designed structures is made using sustainable sapele mahogany and manufactured with longevity in mind. We produce high quality enduring products so you can enjoy your glazed extension for years to come, as well as being reassured that the earth’s resources are being utilised in an efficient manner.
Furthermore, we work hard to make our conservatories and orangeries energy efficient with performance which meets and exceeds current regulations.
To ensure we maintain a low carbon footprint we make use of efficient manufacturing processes and strive to minimise waste of both timber and all other materials. This ensures that minimal waste is sent to landfill. Our timber shavings and off-cuts fuel a biomass boiler system to heat our factory and offices.

This award-winning pool enclosure was designed and manufactured by Hamptons, with curved glass to replicate the detail of two mid-19th century glasshouses on the property.
Tucked away near the beautiful Connemara town of Letterfrack, just fifteen kilometres from the buzzing town of Clifden, the Manor has been discreetly converted into a first-class hotel with the help of a Victorian style Hampton conservatory.
