After 18 months of research, new to 2018 we have launched our Atelier Exterior & Interior Cladding Collection. The creation and development of our Atelier Exterior & Interior Cladding is a first in this market and we will continue to innovate and push the boundaries using the latest technology to provide you with bespoke modern material.

Supplying and building with specialist hardwoods and ThermoWoods on external projects puts us in the unique position of understanding what does and doesn’t work in the UK climate. We can therefore pass on our expertise and guidance in helping you to make the right choice when it comes to your project.

Finishing and fixing

Hidden Fixings:
This is only available with the Palma Clip cladding profile. The hidden clip system allows you to display your cladding boards with no visual sight of screws in the boards.

Face Fixings:
Simply pre-drill using stainless screws through the face of the board into the sub-frame.

Board Spacing:
This will be created by the cladding profile you choose to go with. Allow a very small gap between boards for slight movements that may happen over the wet winter.

 

Joist/Batten Spacing:
We recommend 400mm centre to centre joist spacing for a standard area, projects may vary.

End Grain Sealer:
When the timber starts to dry out it loses the moisture quicker through the ends of the timber hence the characteristics of grain checking and opening up. Clear wax sealer seals the timber ends and slows down the moisture loss to a more controlled process, thus preventing this cracking. This is especially useful because cutting off the damaged ends not only becomes an expensive waste of timber, but may mean the difference between having the right length of timber for your project or it being several centimetres too short.

We recommend using our Messmers End Grain Wax Sealer to prevent the board ends from checking.

CLIENT FEEDBACK

“I am currently in the process of planning my build
project through QTD, I have had a meeting with Chris,who went through all my cladding options with me highlighting all the pro’s and very little cons. I fell inlove with the Atelier Interior and Exterior Cladding, I am particularly impressed with the range of colours that are available. Chris kindly provided me with a collection of samples so I could get a real feel of what the cladding will look at feel like. I ran a few of my own tests in regards to how washable the surface is as I have 3 young children, who can make a lot of mess. So it is very reasuring to know if they decide to get their paint brushes and pens out again I am able to wash the wall down easily, with no marks left. All in all I am very pleased with the service provided so far and
I am looking forward to begin the build.”

Mike, Hampshire

“As an architect it can sometimes be difficult
finding the perfect material to match the project,
I came across QTD’s website and decided to book a showroom visit so I could discuss my idea. I came across the Atelier Interior Panels and they were perfect, I had 18 different colours to choose from and my customer was over the moon. He chose Bahama and we can’t wait to see what the
fiinished project will look like.”

Daisy, Oxford

“I had began my new build back in March 2017, they are never smooth sailing so it took a lot longer to order my cladding than I had hoped. QTD were very patient with me and had also let me know they had just launched the Atelier Interior Panels, I had a look in their showroom and I was amazed. It’s a beautiful product and it will look so nice on my new build.”

Andrew, Kent

What is ThermoWood?

ThermoWood is a thermal modification procedure that preserves wood in its most natural and flawless state for a life-long journey. The “ThermoWood method” involves a carefully computer controlled heat and steam process up to 210 degrees C.

Besides the preservation, the ThermoWood process also causes certain chemical changes in wood. Not only does the color darken but the stability, decay resistance and insulation properties are largely increased after the process is complete.

The ThermoWood method, brand, and logo can only by the used by members of the International ThermoWood Association.

Colour Variation

Samples vary in colour so we recommend that you visit a display or show area where you can really get an understanding of what the boards will look and feel like. QTD have their very own unique show areas, why not come and visit us!
