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.
In this project, client need to define the external area with walls that let the light filter through and see the architecture in the rear glass with the creation of these sunshade panels. The steel frame has been shaped and drilled with an inconstant pitch to increase the fatigue of the strips. The profiles used are the Infinity 60 model with an oversized stiffening core for a longer fixing span.

In this project, client need to define the external area with walls that let the light filter through and see the architecture in the rear glass with the creation of these sunshade panels. The steel frame has been shaped and drilled with an inconstant pitch to increase the fatigue of the strips. The profiles used are the Infinity 60 model with an oversized stiffening core for a longer fixing span. The chosen colour is wood, in contrast with the structure colour and able to give suggestion to the users in the external area of this well-known restaurant in the province of Rovigo. The choice fell on Novowood composite wood both for its versatility of use and for the incomparable durability in an external environment.Read less
