The new walkway of Katara Beach extends for over than 1 km and is entirely made of Novowood Copper Brown decking. In one of the most exclusive beaches of Qatar, a luxury tourist attraction renowned for its recreational activities that combine relaxation and water sports, our Novowood composite wood is the perfect finishing product, up to the demanding of the structure’s customers.
