Our new Wood Finish Aluminium range provides you with the beautiful, natural look of timber while letting you avoid hassles such as fire compliance and maintenance schedules.
Why use our Wood Finish Aluminium?
Our Wood Finish Aluminium battens provide value to specifiers, installers and clients alike. Cost effective, fast to install and providing a range of colour options, our wood finish range can meet any budget and design intent.
Deemed non-combustible under AS1530.1, our battens meet the fire compliance requirements for most external applications.
Highly resistant to fade
Exposure to the elements is the biggest factor when it comes to how the finish on a batten will fade.
We have weather tested our Wood Finish Aluminium extensively, and they have proven to be up to 3 times more resistant to fading than other wood look aluminium products on the market.
Colour fade test results
We measured fading due to exposure to weather over a 5 year period. These test results below indicate the colour change in both our wraps and a powder coat wood look product. As you can see, the wrapped aluminium preformed better.
