Why use Wood Finish Aluminium?
Our Wood Finish Aluminium battens provide value to specifiers, installers and clients alike. Cost-effective, fast to install and providing a range of colour options, our wood finish range can meet any budget and design intent.
Deemed non-combustible under AS1530.1, our battens meet the fire compliance requirements for most external applications.
A selection of popular Wood Finish Aluminium options colour matched to our available timber species. Featuring a more realistic look and feel, it is a perfect option for your fire compliance needs for external and internal features.
Our Wood Finish aluminium provides the timber look that architects and designers crave where it would usually be impossible.
By utilising a lightweight, non-combustible material such as aluminium, designers can avoid issues such as weight restrictions and fire compliance which can force the sacrifice of the overall design intent.
There are many additional advantages to using Wood Finish Aluminium battens which can be read about below.
Quality Timber Finish
The world-class polyolefin film is manufactured in Japan, using an electron beam coating technology. The coating makes the film highly durable and resistant to scratching and abrasion. The film is bonded to the aluminium boards using European wrapping technology.
The German-made reactive hotmelt PUR adhesive gives it superior resistance to moisture and temperature. This interlaminar bond is continually subjected to strict testing rigour.
Colour Fade Test Results
The film also has excellent resistance to fade. In the table below we compare the fade of Sculptform timber finish to a sublimation powder coat alternative. The samples were tested under accelerated weathering conditions to compare fade over time.
All this is backed by Sculptform’s 10 Year Warranty.

Large Blade Sizes
Available in depths up to 100mm, our Click-on Batten system offers large timber look blades for your project. The aluminium profiles offer a lightweight alternative to solid timber battens. See our entire range of aluminium sizes here.
For large scale facade applications requiring deeper blades, our Facade Blades system offers depths of up to 300mm.
Powder Coated End Caps to Match
Our aluminium battens come complete with end caps. Powder coated to suit the colour of the wood finish, the end caps easily snap in place and provide a neat finish to the exposed ends of the battens.
Due to the variation in texture of the wood finish, accurate colour representation cannot be guaranteed.
Wrapped End Caps to Match
We also offer wrapped end caps in the chosen wood finish at an extra cost to provide a more accurate aesthetic. The end caps easily snap in place and provide a neat finish to the exposed ends of the battens.
