The ONLY Clip System that Allows Wood to Expand and Contract Naturally. Perfect for Hardwoods like Ipe, Batu, Cumaru, Tigerwood & Mahogany.

Natural wood siding is subject to expansion and contraction in the width of the boards as a result of seasonal changes in humidity in your individual location.

We designed our ExoClad Rainscreen QuickClip specifically to allow for this natural swelling and shrinkage in the widths of individual boards after installation. Our clip is stiff enough to hold the gap perfectly during installation and yet it is flexible or resilient enough to allow the wood swell up to 1/8" in width.

Typical siding boards can swell up to 1/8" in width. The ExoClad Rainscreen QuickClip will compress to absorb this expansion. When the wood later dries out, the spring clip will move the boards back into place, centered perfectly, and securely fastened to the side of the structure.

Fine landscape architecture demands the highest quality materials. Professional builders and do-it-yourselfers alike enjoy working with Nova's Batu hardwood decking because of its high quality and remarkable consistency.

Nova Batu hardwood decking closely resembles the rich classic look of Mahogany. Heartwood from Batu or Red Balau hardwood ranges from a medium red to a deep red / brown with purple tinges and often has resin canals with white contents in concentric lines on end surfaces which produce a warm and visually striking effect. The texture is moderately fine and grain is typically interlocked.

Our Batu Decking offers a complete package for all your outdoor projects and is available in 1x4, 1x6, 5/4x4, 5/4x6, 2x4, 2x6 and 4x4 sizes plus handrail, balusters, T&G porch flooring and trim boards from 1x8 through to 2x12. Red Balau has a Class A fire rating, which makes it an excellent option for decking & siding in areas that require the Class A fire-rated product. With a rich natural beauty and legendary hardiness that is not easily found in other decking materials, Batu Decking is the natural answer for exterior decking applications.

We are exceptionally confident in the longevity of our exterior decking lumber and strive to only sell the best products ever used for exterior decking. We want our customers to look back after twenty years from purchase and appreciate the investment they made.

Wood Siding  

A Rainscreen siding system refers to the style of installation and fastening of the siding material to the structure. Rainscreen siding systems have an air gap between the siding material and the structure itself. This air gap is typically in the range of 3/4" and offers numerous benefits including thermal insulation and moisture stability of the siding boards - which is particularly important when using high density hardwoods such as Ipe, Batu and Cumaru. In modern rainscreen siding systems attached with clips, there is an additional air gap between the actual siding boards themselves; the gap is very small typically around 1/16" - and it is completely invisible when looking at the finished rainscreen system after installation.

Rainscreen siding systems have been around for centuries. Amazingly, some of these all wood structures which were designed and built in the 12th century in Norway and are still standing today. The key design principal is much the same then as it is with modern Rainscreen siding systems today: there is an air gap between the structure and wood siding boards. This both protects the structure underneath and it keeps the outer cladding boards perfectly stable because there is airflow or ventilation on the outside and behind the wood siding boards.

This initial coat of protection will help minimize checking, warping, cupping and decay in all exterior wood applications.
