Standard ceiling solution.


Linear Base-line

Linear Base-line is an economically attractive ceiling solution, without any concessions in terms of quality. Linear Base-line combines high-quality solid wood parts with the special Derako suspension system. The unique invisible fastening results in a smoothly finished ceiling. Base-line offers you the choice of two sizes and two wood types. This standardisation ensures inexpensive production and quick delivery.






Solid wood with practical suspension systems

The linear ceiling system consists of solid wood parts which are installed using the Derako suspension system. The fastening is unique and invisible. The wooden parts are installed invisibly using a special clip and profile connection on the back. This creates an even appearance with smooth ceiling lines.


System description

Linear Base-line offers you the choice of two standard widths and two wood types in combination with our suspension system. The wood is always given a high-quality lacquer finish. The black acoustic non woven tissue provides a beautiful background. We supply the wooden parts in varying lengths (min. length 900mm). In order to allow the ends to fit nicely and connect easily, they are fitted with a milled-out tongue and groove connection.


Derako suspension system

The Derako suspension system consists of a galvanised profile with special clips. During the production process, the clips are attached to the profile in a fixed repeating pattern. This results in invisible and sturdy fastening of the wooden parts to the structural ceiling. Two standard pattern sizes are available for Linear Base-line. The system is always delivered prefab. Special suspension systems are available for installation in swimming pools and extremely humid spaces.

Lacquer finish

The solid wood parts are as standard given a high-quality lacquer finish that protects the wood. This non-film-forming finish prevents wood damage caused by moisture, dust and dirt. The finish penetrates deep into the wood, but the natural properties and structures are maintained. The lacquer system structure is tailored to the application. For Linear Base-line, you can choose from a transparent finish or one of the four standard wood colour looks.

Circular and responsible product

Building with solid wood is very ecologically responsible. The material has minimal impact on the environment, is fully biodegradable and renewable. Wood is virtually 100% CO2 neutral and has a permanent positive impact on the health of humans, the environment and the surroundings. All Derako systems are fully demountable. At the end of their lifespan, the materials are separated. The mono-components and natural raw materials that remain can be reused in the circular economy.

Derako designs, builds and works according to the Cradle to Cradle® principle. We want to take care of future generations. Each material must be fully reusable, without losing value. We have had our processes certified. There are five levels of certification: Basic, Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum. Derako is C2C Silver certified.
