Novowood is a composite material (WPC), 70% made of wood natural fibers and 30% made of Polyethylene. It can be used for products of different shapes and colors, still maintaining the elegance of wood and the advantages of a not completely natural material.
Bologna - Via Due Madonne 8, Savena district
The district develops on the outskirts of Bologna, along the course of the Savena river. The area is crossed by two important and ancient roads, the “Via Emilia” and the “Strada della Futa”, along which the most ancient settlements were concentrated. “Via Due Madonne” is documented since the first half of the 18th century (1740), presumably there were two votive shrines on the road.

The district develops on the outskirts of Bologna, along the course of the Savena river. The area is crossed by two important and ancient roads, the “Via Emilia” and the “Strada della Futa”, along which the most ancient settlements were concentrated. “Via Due Madonne” is documented since the first half of the 18th century (1740), presumably there were two votive shrines on the road. In this context, the Municipality of Bologna has promoted building development and recovery plans in order to provide a new context in the form of “village” with facilities and spaces for the community, with a school complex and an important sports and aggregation facility as focus. Novowood has collaborated in the building development project for residential units by designing and supplying sliding panels and fixed partition walls for balconies consisting of WPC louvers systems. The Novowood 60x40 and 75x40 louvers systems in wood color represent a functional element with a high design component. The warmth of the WPC elements, combined with the contemporary glass of the balconies create a pleasant contrast.Read less

It is suggested to clean it by using neutral floor detergents, and if using a high-pressure cleaner, it is necessary to keep the machine at least 30 cm away from the walking surface.
Novowood does not lose color thanks to the pigments and UV absorbers contained in the polymeric composite.
Novowood resists the UV rays damage thanks to a special composition of pigments and UV absorbers.
Wood plastic composite Novowood has excellent resistance to fire, responds to the class of fire resistance Cfl-S1 determined in MD March 15, 2005 (OJ No. 73 of 30/03/2005): Requirements for fire resistance of construction products installed in activities governed by specific technical fire prevention according to the European classification system
