What is Qwood?

Qwood is a composite material designed for use in timber windows and doors. It combines the aesthetic appeal of wood with the durability and low maintenance of composite materials.

What are the benefits of Qwood?
  • Ready to Use: Qwood is ready to use straight out of the box, eliminating the need for moisture extraction, treatment, acclimatization, or conditioning.
  • Consistent Quality: It is free from knots, defects, and imperfections, ensuring consistent quality in every piece.
  • Reduced Preparation Times: Qwood eliminates the need for time-consuming manual tasks such as sanding, de-nibbing, machining, and preparation associated with traditional timber beads.
  • Sustainability: Qwood is manufactured under an ISO14001 accredited environmental management system, uses wood fibers sourced from sustainable forests, and is recyclable.
  • Enhanced Production and Processing: Qwood can be machined using traditional joinery tools and enhances the production flow by being easy to cut, mitre, lap joint, nail, pin, glue, tape, and shape for use on arched or round windows.
  • Minimised Waste: The consistency of Qwood reduces waste as it does not bow, splinter, swell, crack, or rot, leaving only off-cuts.
  • Enhanced Finished Product: Qwood's smooth surface without imperfections creates an excellent finish for paint, looking and feeling as good as timber.
  • Long-Term Performance: Qwood is stable, durable, and resistant to environmental changes, outlasting traditional timber by not swelling, twisting, splitting, or rotting.
