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.
Private Villa - Sardegna
Solar exposure, optimal use of outdoor spaces and the search for privacy: these are the requirements that the covering in sunshade profiles and the flooring in Novowood staves fully satisfy. In this single-family residence developed on three levels, result of the design of the Architect Carla Pes, the main volume is covered with a casing that has the function of a more permeable filter, entirely made of Novowood sunshade profiles in Wood colour, installed on fixed and sliding frames, so as to…Read more
Solar exposure, optimal use of outdoor spaces and the search for privacy: these are the requirements that the covering in sunshade profiles and the flooring in Novowood staves fully satisfy. In this single-family residence developed on three levels, result of the design of the Architect Carla Pes, the main volume is covered with a casing that has the function of a more permeable filter, entirely made of Novowood sunshade profiles in Wood colour, installed on fixed and sliding frames, so as to be able to manage and mitigate the entry of light into the rooms. On the more open side towards the garden, the Novowood flooring, in the same Wood colour, in perfect accordance with the sunshade covering of the upper path of the house, guarantees continuity and wide usability of the internal and external spaces.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.
