Choosing a material with sustainability in mind is becoming more paramount. Metal is one of the most recycled materials on the planet and aluminum boasts one of the highest recycling rates of any metal.
KNOTWOOD is 100% recyclable, uses VOC free coatings and lead free finishes resulting in a smaller environmental footprint for us and for you.
KNOTWOOD looks better for longer. To ensure your color choice stands the test of time, all of our colors have been rigorously tested to withstand the most extreme environments.
KNOTWOOD’s advanced paint technology and sublimation process provides a durable, baked-on paint finish that resists peeling, chipping and cracking. When maintained correctly, Knotwood colors and finishes will remain as true as the day you bought it.
One of the best known properties of aluminum is that it is light, with a density one third that of steel and a weight 50% less than wood when compared equally. The low density of aluminum accounts for it being lightweight but this does not compromise its strength.
A lightweight material means low transport costs, easy installation and handling while maintaining structural integrity in all types of environments and conditions
Aluminum is a product that works well in various climates around the world. Damp, wet and shady environments do not have a negative effect on KNOTWOOD products as they are non porous.
KNOTWOOD will not swell, suffer from mold, mildew or rot as wood can when exposed to wet conditions. As aluminum does not retain water, it’s easy to maintain and does not require sanding, sealing, strong detergents or harsh chemicals to keep it beautiful.
Aluminum is impervious to insects, no need to worry about termites or ants affecting the beautiful KNOTWOOD finish. In contrast to wood, Knotwood aluminum doesn’t require additional chemical treatments to protect them from pest attack.
KNOTWOOD is perfect for the outdoors. Aluminum is great in direct sunlight as it remains cooler than most other materials. It naturally absorbs heat slowly but releases it quickly. Whether it be a deck, handrail, or any other application, in the heat of the day Knotwood aluminum remains cool to touch.
Aluminum is not only lighter and stronger but it’s also straighter than real wood. KNOTWOOD supplies lengths of up to Imperial 6.5m ensuring every extrusion is true to form. This means building with a perfectly crafted marine grade material that not only looks fantastic, but is lighter, easier to install, requires less maintenance and does not warp over time.
KNOTWOOD is made from high quality marine grade Aluminum. Contrary to other metals, Aluminum reacts with the oxygen in the air to form an extremely thin layer of oxide. Though unnoticeable, this naturally occurring layer provides excellent corrosion protection and is self-repairing if damaged. This anodising process naturally improves it’s resilience to corrosion in harsh environments.
Unlike most steel grades, aluminum does not become brittle at low temperatures. Instead, its strength increases. And as it doesn’t absorb water or moisture, Knotwood won’t warp and expand when exposed to extremely cold conditions.
Fire resistance and resilience are important no matter where we live. This is where KNOTWOOD’s benefits truly surpass the use wood. KNOTWOOD is a non combustible product that has been manufactured to meet relevant international fire standards.
