Innovation, comfort and energy efficiency: these are the hallmarks of Giardini d’Inverno, the new residential property complex born in the heart of Milan, which has made sustainability its key to understanding. This concept was also decisive for the choice of external facade claddings, consisting of more than 4,000 square meters of Novowood composite wood staves, a recyclable and environmentally friendly material, obtained from regenerated raw materials, which are given a second life. The staves of the Prestige197 line, in Copper Brown color, have the marked veins and the chromatic dynamism characteristic of our Premium Finish, almost to simulate the bark of a trunk, dotted with the 110 greenhouses created in this latest generation condominium, which offers in the building panorama of Milan with a look to the future and the protection of our environment.

Frequently asked questions

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.

Novowood can be used for the flooring of terraces, swimming-pools, verandas, patio gardens, gazebos, exterior designs, and much more. In seaside environments, it can be efficiently used for walkway surfaces, wall cladding, louvers, wharfs, handrails or panel sections, but also for cladding and sunscreen profile.

Novowood has all the qualities of wood, but not its defects: it is long-lasting, stable and it does not warp, it has no splinters and does not lose color, it is sun, ice and rain resistant.

Novowood’s polymeric component allows it to better resist the deterioration due to the sea climate and salty water. Furthermore, it works as a protective layer against the proliferation of fungus and mould.

Finally, the composite materials require no maintenance, painting and are 100% recyclable.

Yes, it is more expensive than softwood, although the treaty, but it has a very similar price to the fine exotic wood (teak or similar), or the kind of wood that can be used outside for decades without any deterioration.

Novowood does not require any special maintenance, it is easy to clean thanks to the well-thought combination of wood and polyethylene, that restrain the growth of mould and fungus. 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.

Is possible only a slight variation of tone certifiable in about a 7-10% due to the presence for 2/3 of the natural material as the wood flour, containing an internal "tannin" that is gradually released.

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
