Timber Shop Fronts and Restoration in Belfast Conservation Areas


An eye-catching shop front is the most considered point when designing your retail outlet. Ensuring an attractive and well thought through shop front will drive footfall and voice your brand at entrance. Your shop front can be supplied and installed using traditional timber and toughened glass. With a vast selection, each shop front is designed with your requirements in mind and installed with excellence by the team at Sash Restoration Belfast.

You may be faced by council restrictions to use timber shop fronts, especially around conservation areas and roads where local heritage is high priority. Or you may be considering timber shop fronts because your brand values and aspirations are traditional. Either way, our skilled carpenters are perfect for creating your timber shop fronts a masterpiece. We use water resistance plywood timbers, combined with A rated finishing treatments to ensure your shop front is built to last. Your project manager will overlook the entire works from sourcing materials to installation to ensure your frontage meets council regulations and your personal requirements. Sash Restoration Belfast supply and fit premium 12mm toughened glass for retailers as well as showrooms, offices and commercial buildings. With an extensive range, we are proud to offer solutions for all budgets.

Timber Shop Front Advantages: 

  • Durable 

  • Fire and weather resistance 

  • Easy Maintenance 

  • Perfect for attracting high end customer

  • Made for conservation areas 

Sash Restoration Belfast have worked in many conservation areas and with many conservation officers across the country and, where appropriate, we are able to obtain written confirmation that any proposed work does not require planning permission on our client’s behalf. In cases where planning permission will be required, we can provide detailed specification, samples and drawings to support your application. 


Many conservation officers will not allow existing timber shop fronts to be changed as this normally will alter the exterior appearance of a shop front property. However, our custom made timber shop fronts have so far been approved in 100% of conservation areas where we have submitted details of our specification directly to the conservation officer.
