a Robust ceiling creates a unique atmosphere.


Grill Cloak Wood

Grill Cloak Wood combines an innovative wood composition with the Derako suspension system. Solid wood and wood veneer together form the basis of this distinctive product. Cloak Wood was developed by our specialists and offers many advantages in terms of design, appearance and budget.


The core consists of European solid wood. This is finished with a layer of natural wood veneer. We offer a broad range of veneer appearances. You maintain the appearance and perception of solid wood, while the application possibilities are increased. Grill Cloak Wood is also suitable for application in curved or arched shapes.






Cloak Wood panel system

Grill Cloak Wood is a ceiling system consisting of Cloak Wood slats and the Derako suspension system. You choose the desired wood veneer appearance, the dimensions and the spacing. We produce the Cloak Wood slats so that the appearance and dimensions match your design. In addition to the solid wood core, Derako also has other alternatives available.

Cloak Wood slats are attached to each other using aluminium dowels so they form a panel. The aluminium dowels are available in diameters of 12 mm and 20 mm. The default colour of the dowels is black, but other colours are available in consultation.

Your design is our starting point. On the basis of the architectural design, all panel lengths are specified and made to measure. The half-lap dowel connection makes it easy and quick to connect the panels. This results in a visually even surface with a smooth appearance. We guarantee stylish ceiling lines and efficient installation at minimal cost.


The power of the system

The large variety of design options and solid wood dimensions are a few of the advantages offered by Cloak Wood. The veneer coated ceiling parts offer extra possibilities in terms of dimensions. The panels are furthermore dimensionally stable. Cloak Wood is also affordable compared to exclusive wood types. Thanks to the professional finish, Cloak Wood is a beautiful alternative when luxurious wood types are economically or technically unsuitable.


Derako suspension system

The Derako suspension system is a black Cross-Lock system with special black dowel clips. These clips ensure an invisible, dimensionally stable and sturdy connection between the Cross-Lock profile and the grill panel. The system is suitable for installation in staggered patterns and in curved or arched shapes.

Wood and finish


Cloak Wood slats have a light solid wood core. The core is available in various widths and lengths. We coat the outside of the core with a high-quality natural wood veneer. Each layer of veneer has its own appearance and unique properties. We produce these unique, customised ceiling parts on the basis of the desired appearance and dimensions.

The lacquer system structure is tailored to the application. Cloak Wood is suitable for colour finishes. In addition to the standard transparent finish, a large number of colours are also available. Our machines can produce any desired colour.
