In recent times fires across Australia have devastated communities, those affected by the devastation are now looking at rebuilding. The scale of the disaster means there is a long road ahead. At Eurowood we are saddened about the current situation, that is why we are committed to change the outcome for future buildings by providing fire resistant and non-combustible aluminium cladding across Australia.

Under extreme conditions a fire can give off flames of 50 meters or more and flame temperatures can exceed 1200°C. Aluminium is not flammable making it classified as a non-combustible construction material. This means it doesn’t ‘add fuel to the fire’. This being the case it can help prevent the spreading of fires.
Aluminium will melt when subjected to temperatures above 600°C. However, this meltdown does not release harmful gases into the air and is in fact, calculated to allow heat and smoke to escape from a burning structure. This results in less structural damage.
Aluminium is alloyed with (among other elements) magnesium, silicone, and zinc to increase its strength-to-weight ratio, corrosion resistance, and UV-shielding properties. It is the future of long-lasting buildings.
It is important, however, to be aware that not all aluminium products are of the same safe standard. For example, on its own Aluminium is non-combustible. But if it is combined with other flammable products to make up the end building material, it could result in a fire hazard.
Experts in disaster management and strategic leadership remind us to plan for a more difficult feature and that the focus for recovering should be the principle of “Build Back Better”. It is important to consider the risk involved with rebuilding with materials that are flammable and therefore adding fuel to potential future fire, this is where Eurowood steps in with aluminium fabrication and cladding that can bring a classic look and is also a modern fire resistant building materials.
Eurowood was created to provide the building and architectural industry with sustainable and low maintenance product that replaces wood. We offer a timber look aluminium cladding decking and other product in 17 different timber coats. this beautiful material brings touch of nature without the flammable element and the maintenance of timber.
We also have a powder coated building materials and take bespoke or custom orders. Aluminium is a low maintenance material that is durable when pre-treated and coated they are further set to endure different environments making it a perfect option for families.
Most items are stocked in Brisbane, lead times vary if you require non stocked items or powder coating.
Eurowood™ Timber Imaged Finish carries a recognised seven (7) year Industry Guarantee accompanied by all of the necessary testing for Salt Spray, Coating Integrity and Colour Integrity that complies with all of the applicable Australian Standards – Reports can be supplied on request.
Powder coating is one of the most durable colour coatings available and with very little effort on your part will provide many years of excellent service.
Eurowood Timber Look Aluminium does not require restaining, re-coating or resealing. However, to maintain the look of your powder coated wood aluminium a regular wash will keep your investment looking it’s best.
Pricing is comparable to feature hardwood, with long term savings because of its low maintenance.

Aluminium is a low maintenance material with inherent durability. Most architectural aluminium products are additionally pre-treated and coated, allowing them to further endure difficult environments. However, since there is potential for damage when exposed to pollutants and contaminants, periodic cleaning is recommended to preserve the decorative finish almost indefinitely. A simple pressure wash is sufficient for anodised aluminium facades, while a mild detergent solution can be used on powder coated aluminium.
Sure Can! Request a sample on our contact page and we will send it out!
All our Aluminum is sourced locally in Australia.
Wash with a soft brush and mild pH neutral detergent. Thoroughly rinse with fresh water immediately afterwards. It is recommended that products be tested for suitability on a non-visible section of the powder coated aluminium prior to use.
Strong and abrasive cleaners and solvents such as paint thinners, acidic, alkaline or alcohol-based cleaning products are harmful to powder coated aluminium and must not be used for cleaning purposes.
We have installers all across Australia who can help bring your dream to life. Contact us and we will put you on to the best in the business.
Eurowood’s powder coated Aluminium resists corrosion because of the thin layer of aluminium oxide that naturally forms on its surface when exposed to air.
Classified as a non-combustible construction material, aluminium is not flammable, but will melt when subjected to temperatures above 600°C. However, this meltdown does not release harmful gases into the air and is in fact, calculated to allow heat and smoke to escape from a burning structure, resulting in less structural damage.
