Carpentier supplies exterior cladding in HOTwood clear pine, a flaw-free variant of thermo pine. This cladding is free of knots for a clean, modern look. Thanks to the smart Grad installation system, the wooden profiles can be installed quickly and easily.
Carpentier has a beautiful assortment of HOTwood clear pine profiles that are delivered ready for installation. This smooth, flaw-free pine is sourced from sustainably managed forests and is thus 100% environmentally responsible, making it an outstanding alternative for increasingly scarce hardwoods. In contrast to thermo pine, our thermo clear pine is free of knots. Left untreated, this timber cladding will develop the same beautifully weathered grey patina as our other thermally treated cladding options.
Because it is free of knots, our thermo clear pine cladding is the perfect choice for outdoor projects in contemporary designs. Depending on your design, you can select a cladding profile for vertical or horizontal installation. With the exception of the tongue-and-groove boards, all of our ready-to-use HOTwood clear pine profiles come with the Grad invisible installation system for quick and easy installation.
To install HOTwood clear pine cladding, we advise using our QuickClip® profiles, which we supply in combination with the Grad installation system. This smart system guarantees invisible installation and perfect alignment of cladding boards for aesthetically pleasing results every time. Moreover, it significantly reduces installation time. Woodworking professionals can get straight to work: simply click boards into place on the aluminium joists. Clips are pre-mounted.
Woodworking professionals can reduce installation time by up to 50% by using our QuickClip® products instead of traditional installation methods.
Thanks to QuickClip® cladding profiles, your cladding is a completely responsible option in a circular economy. If required, cladding can be removed entirely and re-installed elsewhere with no risk of damage. In other words, the boards and the Grad installation system are 100% recyclable and ideal for circular construction. With a set convenient dismantling keys, removing and reassembling cladding is quick and easy.
A big advantage of damage-free dismantling is that it makes it possible to replace a damaged board or access the area behind the cladding, for example to work on wiring. Simply click the QuickClip® HOTwood clear pine cladding away using a set of Grad dismantling keys.
If desired, we can plane your HOTwood clear pine profiles to the dimensions you require, so you can create a unique design according to the preference and needs of your customer. However, custom planing eliminates the advantages that our innovative QuickClip® profiles provide during installation of wooden exterior cladding.
We can apply a fire retardant treatment to our HOTwood clear pine cladding to meet standards up to class B-s2.d0. We can also apply an oil finish in any desired colour. A natural look is a particularly popular option for thermo clear pine, and many people choose a transparent oil or stain. For an even more natural appearance, we can brush the wood before applying oil. Feel free to ask for our help when choosing options for your outdoor project.
Carpentier works closely with architects and dealers who create remarkable projects using our thermo clear pine, such as a residence with clean lines in cement and wood in Koksijde, and a modern extension in Oostende.
Besides the flaw-free profiles shown below, we also have a beautiful range of profiles in thermo pine with knots. Have a look at our thermo pine cladding.
