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.
Uptown Gardens, Rome (IT)
A contemporary residential complex in which nature and architecture coexist, creating a very unique symbiosis: this is the concept behind the Uptown Gardens project. An over 4,300 square meters complex that rises along the ancient Via Cassia. With its sinuous shapes, its design is able to perfectly integrate with the elements of the context. The Novowood “Infinity 60” louver profile is the key element. The louvers are installed to create dynamic shapes and vertical screens that unfo…Read more
A contemporary residential complex in which nature and architecture coexist, creating a very unique symbiosis: this is the concept behind the Uptown Gardens project. An over 4,300 square meters complex that rises along the ancient Via Cassia. With its sinuous shapes, its design is able to perfectly integrate with the elements of the context. The Novowood “Infinity 60” louver profile is the key element. The louvers are installed to create dynamic shapes and vertical screens that unfold on the facades of the residences. This vertical and irregular development remind the organic forms of nature. The Copper Brown color of Novowood profiles provides an interesting contrast with the travertine of the cladding and embellishes the facades creating a perfect match.Read less

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.

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.
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
