Inwood pioneered the use of long length finger-jointed Sweet Chestnut for cladding which has been used in numerous major projects throughout the UK.
Inwood produce a range of cladding systems suitable for both contemporary buildings and restoration projects where a sustainable low maintenance building envelope is required.
British Sweet Chestnut, Oak, Western Red Cedar & Larch all have natural durability and do not require additional preservative treatment gradually weathering to a natural silver grey patina.
We remove the knots and other defects to reduce tensions in the timber and then finger-joint the graded timber to form cladding boards typically in 6.1m lengths. This results in the boards remaining remarkably stable in service.
Boards can be factory treated with wood protection oils or fire resisting finishes as required.
The finger-joints have been subjected to strength tests and accelerated weathering by the Building Research Establishment.
