WOOD ELEMENTS collective features include; a straight-line edging process to ensure the cladding is machined to a fine tolerance; relief grooves which are designed to take the stress out of the cladding; a specially designed ridge locater connects with the overlap line controlling the expansion allowance for any timber movement.
WOOD ELEMENTS trims provide a streamline finish and play an integral part in ensuring a water tight finish. All aluminium trims are factory fitted with waterproof gaskets*, designed to decrease the on-site sealing process, and delivery of loose materials. WOOD ELEMENTS trims are available in a black powder coated chromate treated aluminium.
WOOD ELEMENTS is a natural product, a renewable resource, providing an environmental advantage over common building materials. Timber will only perform within the limits of its natural properties, when specifying, it’s critical that the characteristics and properties of the timber are considered and determine how they will respond to the environment they are placed in.
Design Elements & Fixing
Extreme care has been taken in all aspects of WOOD ELEMENTS Refined Architectural Hardwood Cladding. From the environment to milling and drying, profile and trim design and species selection. Each element plays an important role in the performance of the cladding system.
Utilising a specially developed end match system for external use, WOOD ELEMENTS end-match profile has a micro bevel edge designed to encourage water to drain away from the join. End matching the product means the boards can be fixed mid cavity batten, eliminating the need to dock and create volumes of waste, saving a minimum of 10% of the product that previously would have been thrown away. Not only does this save costs, it’s a better for our environment with less resource being used.
WOOD ELEMENTS is a cladding that has been designed with concealed fixing in mind. For fixing, Hurford’s recommend screwing along the pre machined “screw location” line which enables the board to slip over the secured row quickly and easily, creating a clear face finish.
Automatic Spacing System
The Automatic Spacing System allows expansion to be placed between the boards, which is automatic and doesn’t require any special tools or spacers to get right. The specially designed ridge locator controls the expansion allowance. This unique design feature takes out any pressure caused if the boards expand due to absorption of moisture.
Double Dried Technology
All the timber used to manufacture WOOD ELEMENTS is air dried for up to 12 months to bring the moisture content down to “fibre” saturation. From this point the timber is kiln dried using double drying technology, developed by Hurfords to ensure significant added stability. This produces a finished product with a very narrow moisture variation.
When timber is milled and dried it builds stress and force, which translates into spring and bow. Steps can be taken during this process to minimise this. Hurfords uses a process to straighten the boards post drying to ensure the boards are straight and stay straight. This ensures that WOOD ELEMENTS can be easily installed and all shadowlines remain as they have been designed – straight.
