Linear Cloak Wood
Linear Cloak Wood offers a beautiful and affordable alternative to the use of luxurious and expensive wood types. Cloak Wood is an innovation in wood. Solid wood and wood veneer together form the basis of this distinctive product. The combination of veneer with a solid wood core was developed by Derako’s own specialists.
The core consists of solid wood from European forests. This is coated with natural wood veneer. You will experience all the constructive advantages of solid wood. You can choose from various sizes. We offer a broad range of veneer appearances. Just like the other Derako systems, the parts are installed invisibly with the special suspension system.
Unique material combination
Linear Cloak Wood combines the advantages of solid wood and a veneer finish. Using Cloak Wood in the Derako suspension system results in an invisible fastening. An additional advantage: the veneer layer and wood composition remain intact. Due to the unique product properties, the wooden parts are very dimensionally stable. Cloak Wood can furthermore be produced cost effectively. In addition to the solid wood core, Derako also has other alternatives available.
Linear Cloak Wood can be produced in a number of standard sizes and a wide variety of veneer appearances. The joints in the system are equipped with acoustic non woven tissue. You can choose from the standard colours black, white or grey. Other colours are available upon request. The Cloak Wood parts are as standard finished with high-quality lacquer. The lengths of the parts are by default a mix of sizes (min. 900 mm). This partly depends on the available materials for the wooden core. The upper edges have a milled out tongue and groove connection. This guarantees that the ends fit nicely and connect easily.
Derako suspension system
The Derako suspension system consists of a profile equipped with special clips in a repeating pattern. During the production process, the clips are attached to the profile and delivered to the project location in the correct pattern size. Five pattern sizes are available for the Linear Cloak Wood system.
You can opt for a fixed design or a 50% demountable design. The demountable model allows one to easily remove Cloak Wood parts after installation for maintenance work.

The Derako systems are suitable for all building sectors; healthcare, hotel & catering, educational institutions, public transport, recreation & leisure, retail and shopping centres and office buildings.
Bring nature inside
Wood has enormous added value for the perception, quality of space and economic value of a building. Building with wood is also very sustainable. Derako systems have been used in sustainable and circular projects by many architects, contractors and finishers. For example, at Schiphol Airport, Paris Charles de Gaulle airport, Delta Hospital Chirec, Wroclavia Shopping Center and Alexandra Hotel. For inspiration and more of our completed projects, see the references menu item.
Derako systems are installed by many national and international installers and building companies. We advise them as a producer and supplier. And we support designers. This is how we create unique ceilings and walls together with you.
Installation is always performed by third parties, but they can turn to us for installation advice.
The Cloak Wood ceiling system must always be fastened to the structural ceiling. We deliver a complete package with various accessories (excluding suspension material). For a complete installation description – for indoors and outdoors – please see the downloads tab. Are you interested in our products or would you like more information? Our advisors are happy to help.
The Derako demountable suspension system allows you to remove individual panels easily and without damaging them. This means you have access to the plenum for repairs and maintenance work.
Demountable suspension system
The demountable suspension system consists of 50% fixed clips and 50% special demountable clips. The demountable suspension system requires a gap of at least 12 mm between the wooden parts. The demountable clips can easily be removed and replaced with our demounting tool.
Wood and finish
Cloak Wood consists of a light and inexpensive solid wood core. The core is available in various widths and lengths. We cover the core in a high-quality natural wood veneer. Each layer of veneer has its own appearance and unique properties. We produce this unique, customised product on the basis of the desired appearance and dimensions.
The images below show a number of standard veneer looks. However, Derako offers a wider range. We’re happy to help.

Cloak Wood parts have a high-quality lacquer finish to protect the material. This non-film-forming wood protection is a protection against moisture, dust and dirt. The lacquer system structure is tailored to the application. In addition to the standard transparent finish, we also offer a large number of colours. Our machines can produce any colour. Cloak Wood is suitable for various colour finishes.
The fire safety of a building is to a large degree determined by the fire behaviour and fire reaction of the building materials used. Derako systems must meet the requirements for cladding/finishing materials.
For buildings with strict fire resistance requirements, we treat the wood with fire retardants. With this treatment, we ensure that the solid wood parts of the system meet the European standard EN 13501-1.

Acoustics are very important for the way people perceive a space. A space with good acoustic balance improves health, productivity, concentration, learning performance, communication and safety.
Due to its shape, processing and the natural properties of wood, Linear Cloak Wood is sound-absorbing. Extra attenuation can be achieved by placing a sound-absorbing (sheet) material behind the systems. This extra attenuation creates a pleasant atmosphere, also in buildings where many people congregate at the same time.
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.
Cradle to Cradle
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.
FSC, PEFC, A+, ISO certification
Derako invests in sustainable business practices. We use wood types with FSC® or PEFC certificates. We evaluate finishing materials on their ecological footprint and have VOC A+ certification. In addition, we embrace the quality and environmental management systems ISO9001 and ISO14001.
