In general natural timber expands and contracts during temperature changes, INNOWOOD also inevitably incur some movement as they are produced using recycled wood flour as a major component.
To combat this, INNOWOOD has designed and developed a series of systems that restrict and control the product movement. The amount of movement is directly linked to the level of temperature change. As a guide, expansion is expected to be controlled at an average of 2mm per metre in hot weather (assuming both ends and joints are properly locked or fixed as per the INNOWOOD INSTALLATION MANUAL instructions.
For different INNOWOOD products, different movement controls are recommended which can be found in the respective product Installation manual.
INNOWOOD Starter and Corner Trim Angles are designed to control and conceal material movement, while simultaneously helping to keep the board secured in place and improving the appearance of the corners and edges with a clean finish.
Face Fix method is used when there are butt joints to make sure there is no movement at the butt joints.
INNOWOOD provides an option of using an aluminium T bar to go in between the butt joint in order to conceal the butt joint fixings.
