Quick, invisible installation
Used in combination with our thermal wood (HOTwood) varieties, the invisible Grad mounting system makes installation easier than ever and saves you a significant amount of installation time. With pre-mounted clips already attached to aluminium joists, boards simply click in place. Our QuickClip® profiles ensure easy installation and a perfect finish, with results that will make every builder proud.
Durable cladding profiles and finishes
Our durable timber cladding profiles are available in a range of sustainable wood varieties: thermal ash, thermal pine, oak and barnwood. Various finishes can be applied depending on the wood, including preweathering, charring, brushing and oiling. We are happy to help you choose the perfect finish for the wood used in each project, which means that your only job as a woodworking professional is to install the cladding itself. Most profiles are suitable for both horizontal and vertical alignment.
In some cases, fire-retardant treatment is required for outdoor cladding. As a leading and innovative producer of outdoor cladding, Carpentier has invested time and expertise in testing a range of mounting systems. We are currently able to apply fire-retardant treatment to our full range of HOTwood cladding, bringing it into compliance with B-s2,d0 norms. Naturally, we can also perform professional testing on other wood varieties, such as oak.
To achieve the maximum degree of fire resistance, we impregnate our environmentally-friendly wood with a fire-retardant substance under vacuum conditions. The technique is 100% natural and has no effect on the colour or structure of the wood. Once treated, wood is fire-retardant and ready for use.
Advice from our wood specialists
For mounting fire-retardant outdoor cladding, we advise customers to choose durable Flame Delay® WP-A2 construction panels. These panels are 4.5mm thick and suitable for both open and closed cladding profiles. Installation is simple and straightforward. The cement-bonded panels have a smooth, anthracite-coloured surface and can be mounted directly on our aluminium joists, eliminating the need for pre-drilling. We can even supply Flame Delay® WP-A2 panels pre-cut to your specifications. Feel free to ask us for any advice you may require.
Additional features to enhance timber cladding
We design lighting schemes for use with timber cladding. Whether it consists of a carefully chosen outdoor lamp or LED lights, the right light adds the finishing touch to a facade and brightens up a dark evening.
For outdoor sun protection, we can provide window shutters in the same profile used in wall cladding. When closed, upward folding shutters blend seamlessly into the cladding so that the wall appears as an unbroken surface. This same design technique can be used for a door or garage door.
