Say goodbye to conventional wood plastic composites and give a warm welcome to NewTechWood, a sustainable, design-friendly composite that is set to revolutionize Canadian building projects, inside and out.
The company began in 2010 with a lofty goal: design and formulate the most durable, attractive, fade and scratch resistant, beautiful and reliable composite product in the industry.
The result? Unmatched beauty and durability that looks and feels as decadent as wood, even close-up.
NewTechWood’s Original Wood looking fluted siding is the best natural wood looking product for the coastal environment, mid-century architecture, west coast contemporary aesthetic or any look that blends flawlessly into nature. The natural brushed wood finish brings unparalleled beauty to any project.
The company’s large portfolio of products is exactly what you need to help create harmonious design throughout new builds, multi-unit developments or basic home improvement projects. Realize unlimited design dreams with an unbeatable range of siding colours and textures—IPE, Teak, Red Cedar, Charcoal, Ebony, Silver Gray, or Antique. And geography is no worry: NewTechWood’s durability against humidity, extreme cold, moisture and salty air make it the perfect fit for Canadian weather from coast-to-coast.
“For the ultra-classy look, consider Norwegian Castellation thin strips, or for a modern edge Belgian Castellation large strips is a great choice,” says Michael Richard, NewTechWood Canada co-owner. “On a facade, either will achieve the look of parallel castellated timber battens with a narrow shadowline, or rebate, between each one.”
This provides the natural appearance of timber without the maintenance, and it is an attractive alternative for creating a stylish external facade, screening or as a ceiling treatment.
“Of course, we all want a healthier planet and a greener future, and most designers seek materials that contribute to environmental sustainability with a low carbon footprint,” Richard says. “NewTechWood is produced in harmony with nature, made from 95% recycled materials—including plastic bottles and reclaimed wood fibers—and sustainably sourced.”
It is held to a high standard by yearly third-party audits to comply with environmental, health, and safety guidelines and regulations, including LEED compliance and environmental product declaration certification.
NewTechWood has created important partnerships that facilitate specifiers’ work with the products. “For instance, we have partnered with Lightbeans to create e-samples and 3D textures to facilitate designers’ and architects’ work,” Richard says. “With e-samples, users can quickly make colour choices or use them as a conversation starter with a designer or client.”
In addition to providing dynamic light interaction, the eSamples viewer offers multiple zoom levels so clients can admire the details, texture and quality of NewTechWood products.
NewTechWood also offers CAD files and REVIT files to create 2D and 3D designs, and Smart Textures for 3D renderings, which help design professionals save up to 180 minutes per material. The textures are up to 32K resolution to create designs with exceptional resolution.
