Where Derako previously specialised in the supply of custom and project-based Grill systems only, the manufacturer and supplier of solid wood systems has now developed a new product line; the Derako Grill Base-line. A standardised and cost-effective solution that allows the unique properties of solid wood to be applied to even more structure designs.
With the Grill Base-line system, you can choose from fifteen standard sizes and four types of wood. Due to the standardisation, our system is exceedingly cost-effective, and we are generally able to produce materials quickly. Orders are placed per panel, with you specifying the exact numbers and selecting the desired panel length and fitting, to create a wall or ceiling with a special, yet natural, look.
As with all Derako systems, the Grill Base-line system is C2C Silver certified and manufactured using 100% solid wood. Solid wood is not only very environmentally friendly, CO2 neutral and recyclable, it also offers a lot of added value on many different fronts. The material has a natural look and feel, with a calming effect, and combines well with a variety of other materials. A better experience is also created by its great acoustic properties. All these properties can positively affect health, communication, safety, productivity and learning achievements.
The standard finish of the Grill Base-line is transparent, to protect the wood. As an option, the wood can be finished in a colour of choice or with a fire-retardant treatment (EN13964). With an additional tail strip on the panel, you can create hidden panels for, for example, island applications.
Characteristics of the Grill Base-line system:
The Derako range of 8 product lines offers many ways to apply solid wood in your project. Standard and cost-effective solutions, but perfect-fit custom-made ceilings and walls can also be manufactured to your project specifications, a wide selection of wood types and measurements, or very special curved shapes. Soon, all exact information about these product lines will be available to you on the new and improved Derako website.

On the Chateau St. estate a pavilion with a very special role and appearance has been built. The pavilion stands in between two historic buildings and with its natural design it has the requisite connection with its environment. Various rooms in the pavilion, including the warmly and classically furnished entrance hall, have been fitted with solid wood Derako grill ceilings. Château St. Gerlach is an estate near Maastricht, in the centre of the undulating Limburg countryside: a unique complex with a luxury hotel, restaurant and spa. Mecanoo architects designed a pavilion that connects the historic buildings, including the Château (1661), the St. Gerlachus church (1727) and the farmhouse with it's inner courtyard (1668).
Housing association 'Alliantie' totally renovated and transformed their offices into a very amenable building with more light and transparency. Various spaces and working areas were fitted with Derako solid wood grill walls, which not only ensured a warm atmosphere but also better acoustics.
To further highlight the products and the company, Derako has a collaboration with Leaf Review, a renowned portal and magazine, which provides and shares information among leading architects, planners and contractors in Europe. The Leaf Review magazine and the website (www.leading-architects.com) express opinions, ideas and philosophies of Europe's foremost architects and construction engineers. They offer a mix of inspirational articles, case studies, exclusive interviews and company profiles.
For the Volvo Retail Experience, car manufacturer Volvo has developed a new concept for their showrooms, which will be carried through universally. A warm, Scandinavian, open design for offices and meeting rooms. The showrooms are above all light and the maintenance areas open. In these areas the "customer experience" is central, and for the ceilings in several of these areas a Derako solid wooden grill and linear system were chosen.
