The natural beauty & timeless appeal of wood with the capabilities of aluminium.

Knotwood uses a state of the art sublimation process to create woodlike aluminium thats greener, safer, stronger and easier to use than wood. From traditional warm woody hues to dark modern ashes, Knotwood has the most extensive range inspired from the natural world.

Knotwood is Non-Combustible

Fire safety is an important consideration for any building. Selecting the right materials to conform to fire regulations requires a balance between aesthetics, cost, form and function.

Unlike tradtional wood which typically has a D fire perfomance rating, Knotwood has an A2 fire performance rating. This means the profiles are non-combustible and would not contribute towards a fire.

Wood Grain Stocked Colours

Due to possible batch variations like natural wood, Knotwood will supply all materials for an order from the same batch. We recommend you ensure that there are sufficient materials from the same batch to complete your job, as there are no guarantees that extra product of the same batch (colour and shade) can be supplied at a later date.

Aluminium is not only lighter and stronger but it’s also straighter than real wood. Knotwood supplies lengths of up to 6.5m ensuring every extrusion is true to form. This means building with a perfectly crafted marine grade material that is easier to install and won’t warp over time.

Knotwood looks better for longer. To ensure your colour choice stands the test of time, all of our colours have been rigorously tested to withstand the most extreme environments. Knotwoods advanced paint technology and sublimation process provides a durable, baked-on paint finish that resists peeling, chipping and cracking. When maintained correctly, Knotwood colours and finishes will remain as true as the day you bought it.

Choosing a material with sustainability in mind is becoming more paramount. Metal is one of the most recycled materials on the planet and aluminium 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 decking is available with a Non-Slip powder coating rated BS EN 13036-4 PTV Slip Resistance Rating of 40(Wet) / 60(Dry) making it suitable for all outdoor areas, around swimming pools and wet areas. Since this is the same material as the cladding and soffits, please specify your application when ordering.

Fire resistance and resilience are important no matter where we live. This is where Knotwoods benefits truly surpass the use wood. Knotwood is a non combustible product that has been manufactured to meet relevant international fire standards. Knotwood is non combustible and achieves a class A EN13501-1 fire rating.

Knotwood is made from high quality marine grade Aluminium. Contrary to other metals, Aluminium 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.

A topcoat of specially developed, exterior grade paint is baked on to provide resistance to chipping, flaking and blistering to ensure the finish retains its look for longer. Our specialised sublimation process permeates the entire thickness of the powder coating which means Knotwoods finish is the industry’s leading material in hard wearing wood like products.

One of the best known properties of aluminium 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 aluminium 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.

Knotwood is perfect for the outdoors. Aluminium 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 aluminium remains cool to touch.

Aluminium is impervious to insects, no need to worry about termites or ants affecting the beautiful Knotwood finish. In contrast to wood, Knotwood aluminium doesn’t require additional chemical treatments to protect them from pest attack.

Unlike most steel grades, aluminium 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.

Aluminium is perfect for wet, damp, shady environments. Unlike wood, Knotwood is non porous and will not swell, grow mould or mildew when exposed to wet conditions. As it doesn’t retain water, it’s easy to maintain as it doesn’t require regular sealing, making it a more practical solution than wood.
