Aluminium woodgrain, also known as ‘Wood Without Worry’, provides the warm look of timber – retained over time – with the minimal maintenance requirements of powdercoated aluminium.
WHAT IS WOOD WITHOUT WORRY?
Wood Without Worry refers to aluminium woodgrain battens that offer a premium timber look with minimal maintenance. Compared to timber, aluminium woodgrain is stronger, more durable, fade-resistant and only requires the occasional soapy water wash down with a clean cloth every few months as required.
Wood Without Worry retains its appearance over time, features tried and tested durability and is very low maintenance. It is UV- and salt-resistant for peace of mind.
Select from five beautiful shades of wood: dark to light and cool to warm.
Available shades: 1. Bush Cherry, 2. Wenge, 3. Spotted Gum, 4. Beach Oak Grey, 5. Curly Birch

Some Wood Without Worry battens require end caps. If this is the case, you may choose to match the end cap with the colour of the frame or batten.

HOW IS IT MADE?
Wood Without Worry uses a sublimation process, which embeds high-res imagery of a timber species into the powdercoat, which is then baked onto the aluminium. Each batten is then coated with a super durable matte powder for further weathering, salt and humidity resistance.
WHAT ABOUT GRAFFITI AND SCRATCHING?
Wood Without Worry is an anti-graffiti coating, which means surface scratches can be polished out and marker pen can be removed with a suitable cleaner. Deeper scratches can be remedied using colour-matched touch up paint. Spare battens are also readily available direct from the factory.
DOES WOOD WITHOUT WORRY GET HOT?
No, on the contrary, Wood Without Worry battens – with the exception of Wenge – are cooler than the surrounding temperature in the summer months. It is the ideal batten choice for hot summers and locations where the urban island heat effect is a concern.
