QWood – The Innovative Beading Range

Our guide to QWood beading and the range available at Toolfix

QWood is the original brand and innovator of wood composite window and door beads.

Designed to replace traditional timber beading, the beading is manufactured in a wide range of profiles to suit many applications.

Qwood beads and bars have many benefits including:

Use Straight Out of Box- A complete ‘out of the box solution’. The moment it arrives it is ready to use. There is no need to extract moisture, treat, acclimatise or condition before using. QWood removes labour intensive inspection and sorting.

Reduce Preparation Times- Use ‘it all’ straight out of the box; QWood is consistent – every piece, every time. No knots, no defects, no bends. The beading is highly resistant to changes in temperature with minimal moisture absorption. Eliminate time consuming manual tasks such as sanding, de-nibbing, machining and preparation that are currently associated with timber beads.

Sustainability- QWood take sustainability seriously and are fully committed to the protection and the improvement of the environment for future generations.

  • The beading is manufactured under an environmental management system accredited to ISO14001.
  • Waste QWood is recyclable to reduce unnecessary land fill.
  • The wood fibres used in QWood are sourced from sustainable forest strands.
