Expression Cladding | Woodform Skip to main content

Expression Cladding has now gone 3D with the advent of the new Queenscliff range and the Element profile. You are now able to create a facade which is completely unique, using any of the combinations of shadowline, species, sizing or finish that Expression Cladding offers. All of this is carefully engineered into a finely detailed system of unsurpassed integrity.

Timber expands and contracts as moisture is retained and lost within the cell walls. Movement in timber is inevitable: it cannot be avoided, it must be accepted and accounted for. Only Expression Cladding is profiled to allow for natural timber movement. Woodform has applied evidence based design to timber cladding and developed a series of tongue and groove cladding designs that apply the latest scientific research into timber movement and allow for the right amount of shrinkage and expansion.

When applying timber cladding in harsh environments it is important to consider movement. Woodform has curated a range of low-shrinkage timber species such as Burnt Ash (pictured) for sun-exposed applications, to reduce the risk of problems occurring.

Pre-finishing eliminates the process of oiling on-site prior to installation, protecting the timber during construction and saving on preparation time and costs. Working with Dulux, we use the latest technology water-based coatings for safety and sustainability. Woodform can create virtually any finish type, including rough-sawn and wire-brushed textures. Interior Finishes Our pre-finishing for interiors employs water- based coatings, a process that creates time and labour-saving efficiencies with the bulk of preparation completed prior to delivery on-site. Pre-finishing for interiors delivers a sophisticated matte result and we are also able to do colour matching, ensuring that continuity of shade and tone be achieved. Exterior Finishes Pre-finishing for exterior timber is a relatively new concept. Our range for exteriors includes oil and film coatings, and we are proud to lead the way with Dulux, Australia’s most-advanced paint company. The savings are significant, moving the bulk of preparation to the factory and leading to increased efficiency on-site.

Expression cladding has two types of end matching: standard and Queenscliff. Standard end matching can be used with all profiles (including Queenscliff) and performs the role of creating a neat, seamless linear effect. Queenscliff end matching was introduced specifically for the new Queenscliff profile and when designers want to create a pronounced shadow line block effect. Expression Cladding End Matching was designed so boards could be joined off-stud, a time and labour-saving innovation that removes the need for measuring and cutting on the stud. End matching slashes wastage from 10% to less than 2%*, and the design facilitates water run-off when used vertically.

Inspired by Lego blocks, the minimal square design is available in a large range of sizes, giving designers complete freedom. The slim, shadow lines can be used to create a myriad of textures, from a 3D random block effect to a linear sea of fine lines.

Element was developed in direct response to designers asking for a way to include deep battens within a cladding facade. The solution is an aluminium extrusion element that allows a deep batten to be integrated with the Queenscliff Profile.

With Element you can produce virtually any texture you want by mixing the sizes from the Element and Queenscliff ranges. This new level of freedom adds an unprecedented new type of depth to your facade, allowing you to play with shadow. It really is a ‘4th dimension’.

Suitable for interiors, or partly shaded exteriors vertically.

The slim, symmetrical and gently tapering lines of Sorrento suit virtually any architectural style. From heritage to contemporary, this versatile Woodform-designed profile has become an industry standard in shadowline design.

The gentle taper allows for water run off, making it suitable for multiple applications. Suitable for vertical or horizontal applications in exteriors and interiors.

Whitsunday is a relaxed and expressive profile suited to coastal designs. Combating wind and rain, the steeply- sloping bottom edge of the shadow line allows water to drain away more rapidly, reducing the amount of moisture driven up over the tongue and into the wall cavity.

Suitable for horizontal use in exteriors and interiors.

Understated but smart, minimal but definite; Vaucluse features a v-shaped shadow line that is sharper and deeper than traditional v-joints. Named for the prestigious Sydney suburb, Vaucluse draws attention to the natural beauty of the timber in internal applications like entrance lobbies and meeting areas.

Suitable for vertical or horizontal use in prestige interiors (no expansion allowance). 

Select from 4 cladding profiles and 4 sizes, all with hidden fixings
