Knotwood Battens

Wood battens look great in architectural features, adding a real sense of style and scale. The problem being that as sizes get increasingly bigger, so does the problem of fixing them to the structure. The bigger the pieces the longer, and more difficult the installation becomes.

Regardless of the style of fixing; angle, frame or otherwise, big pieces are hard to fix to the structure, often requiring specialized equipment, and bulky brackets and bolts to hold the timber straight. Even after all that effort within months the timber fades or cracks, which means having to get a ladder or an entire scaffold system set up in order to maintain the battens. Again the bigger the project the bigger the problem, and the more expensive it becomes.


Some people have tried using alternative materials such as steel. Although having significantly lower maintenance costs, the installation process is still extraordinarily difficult, difficult in comparison to the alternative…

Knotwood has recently launched a new aluminium batten system that brings the best of both worlds. The natural look and feel of wood, with a fixing system unlike any other, and next to no maintenance requirements.

Knotwoods Clip-Batten System combines the award winning Knotwood finish, with a purpose designed hidden fastening system that allows for an unparalleled versatility and a clean, floating finish that can’t be matched by traditional systems.The secret comes in the lightweight design of the two-part aluminium battens. The section is carefully designed to be as light as possible without sacrificing strength.

My garage door broke and I scheduled with Norman’s Overhead Doors to repair my garage door. Jerame and Deven arrived and after looking at the door they suggested to change the door due to wood rot. They then showed/explained to me that wood rot was the root of the door problem. They changed the door, hauled the old door away, explained how to use my new door, and they cleaned up their rubbish. Although that is expected by every company, it was their customer service and knowledge that made my experience amazing and they went over and beyond. That’s why I took the time to write this comment!

Great service and customer service too! I was trapped when the spring broke and in a bind to get out to work. Arrived in great time and explained other options to maintain my door for a longer, better performing life!

My Mom's old garage door opener needed to be replaced. I talked to VAL around 10:00 AM, and JERAME showed up around 1:30 to begin the job. He was finished by 4:00 ....... New opener motor unit, new rail, new inside and outside switches, new safety lasers. The work was professional ..... very clean and tidy. I have used Norman's several times for repair, and will continue to use them in the future.

Knotwood Aluminum building system is a unique construction material that combines the natural beauty and timeless appeal of wood with the capabilities of aluminum. This system is designed to give you a wood-like appearance on your buildings while taking advantage of the durability and strength of aluminum.

Knotwood Aluminum has many advantages when compared to other building materials. It’s lighter than most materials and offers greater durability and resistance against elements. It doesn’t rust, warp or require regular maintenance like wood does. It is also resistant to insects, such as termites which makes it a perfect choice for any kind of outdoor and indoor constructions.

Knotwood Aluminum is versatile and can be used in a variety of applications in construction. It is often used for building exteriors because of its durability and weather resistance. It can also be used for interior applications, as it doesn’t emit VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) like some other materials. This includes decking, fencing, cladding, gates, screens, and more.

Aluminum is one of the most environmentally friendly metals, it’s 100% recyclable and reuses most of the original metal during the recycling process. Knotwood’s process also uses less energy than traditional wood or metal fabrication. Moreover, it reduces deforestation by offering an alternative to traditional wood construction materials.

One of the major advantages of using Knotwood Aluminum is that it usually requires very little maintenance. Unlike wood, it doesn’t need to be regularly sealed, painted or treated. Just a simple clean with a mild detergent and water usually suffices. Knotwood Aluminum is also resistant to corrosion which makes it last longer.
