RAM'S RANGE OF Pv wood Profile Extrusions
WHAT IS PV WOOD
Pv-wood is a strong profile extrusion made from pvc combined with wood fibres. The wood fibres used in Pv-wood derive from a sustainable FSC certified forest source. Pv-wood mimics the appearance of real wood whilst still retaining the advantages of using PVC..
Applications & Use
