Wood Elements

WOOD ELEMENTS is a complete hardwood cladding solution for any wall, offering not just the cladding but all the detailed trims required to finish off the project and ensure a watertight result.


Profile features include; a straight-line edging process to ensure the cladding is machined to a fine tolerance and is extremely straight; relief grooves which are designed to take the stress out of the cladding, reducing the effect of warping and cupping; a specially designed ridge locater connects with the overlap line providing an effortless straight-line finish, simultaneously controlling the expansion allowance for any timber movement. Available in two appearance options; Dressed Face a smooth surface or the new Sawn Brushed Face a rough texture and rustic look.


Trims provide a streamlined finish and play an integral part in ensuring a watertight finish. All aluminium trims are factory fitted with waterproof gaskets, designed to decrease the on-site sealing process and delivery of loose materials. Satisfying different design aspects Wood Elements trims are available in both traditional matching timber and modern anodised aluminium. A chromate treated aluminium option is also available for powder coating.


Extreme care has been taken in all aspects of Wood Elements Refined Architectural Hardwood Cladding. From the environment to milling and drying, to the profile and trim design features, the species selection, right down to the finishes and accessories. Each element plays an important role in the performance of the cladding system.
