Wood Elements Hardwood Cladding

Approx read time: 3 minutes

Wood Elements is a complete hardwood cladding solution, not just the cladding but also all the detailed trims to complete the project and ensure a watertight result. Available at NHS by special order.

WOOD ELEMENTS can be used externally utilising the highly durable Australian species or internally where the addition of American White Oak is also available to give a modern crisp look.

Wood Elements Australian Hardwoods are ideal for external cladding being naturally fire resistant and naturally durable.

These included the Australian classics like Spotted Gum, Blackbutt & Ironbark that are sought after around the world for their strength, durability and style.

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. So 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.

Clockwise: Blackbutt, Spotted Gum, American White Oak (internal only), Ironbark

All the timber species used for the external use are rated Durability Class 1 under Australian Standard AS 5604 -2005, which give these species the highest possible life expectancy ranking – greater than 40 years.

This system is a complete solution for any wall, offering not just the cladding but all the detailed trims required to finish off the project and ensure a watertight result.


WOOD ELEMENTS profiles collective features include; a straight-line edging process to ensure the cladding is machined to a fine tolerance and is extremely straight; relief grooves which are designed to take the stress out of the cladding, reducing the effect of warping and cupping; a specially designed ridge locater connects with the overlap line providing an effortless straight-line finish, simultaneously controlling the expansion allowance for any timber movement.


Following a traditional shadowline profile, Coulee is about flow. The contemporary shadowline can be installed in either vertically or horizontally. This open profile enables water to drain away, ensuring a barrier to the wall.

With its narrow channel, Flume creates a clean square edged pencil shadowline for crisp definition between each board.



A profile with a deep escarpment creating a distinctive “V” shaped ravine. The deep “V” shadowline will bring sophisticated clean lines to any interior. (Interior use only)

Corner Details

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. Satisfying different design aspects Wood Elements trims are available in both traditional matching timber and modern anodised aluminium. A chromate treated aluminium option is also available for powder coating.


Considerations at design stage regarding the accessibility, positioning and finish should be discussed between the client and builder. The expected outcome will determine the level of maintenance required.
