Linear Exclusive-line allows you to create a unique solid wood ceiling. Just like Base-line and Pro-line, this system combines solid wood parts with practical suspension systems. But Derako goes a step further... Does the design include organic shapes or special curves? Would you like to vary with wood or create curved wooden parts? We will examine all the requirements and technical challenges together and look for exclusive possibilities and solutions.
Exclusive shapes and effects
Adding aesthetically enriching shapes and effects strengthens architectural designs. Linear Exclusive-line offers you that possibility. In the linear ceiling system, the solid wood parts are installed with the Derako suspension system. The fastening is invisible. The wooden parts are installed invisibly via a clip and profile connection. This creates an even appearance with smooth ceiling lines.
Linear Exclusive-line offers you the possibility of applying various wood types and/or varying sizes in one system. This gives your ceiling an exclusive and playful appearance. Curved designs that run in two directions, or wood in organic shapes can also be created with the Linear Exclusive-line. We examine all the requirements and possibilities beforehand. Our experience and expertise allow us to modify the products and the production process. We can create the most exclusive wood applications together with you.
Derako suspension system
The basis of the Derako suspension system is 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. Derako offers various pattern sizes. For the Exclusive-line, our technical department checks the correct composition and design of the suspension system. Additional installation instructions may be required for specific projects. We provide these.

Linear Exclusive-line is a suspended ceiling system. Our advisors are happy to show you various solutions. We will discuss the possibilities for your project together. Linear Exclusive-line is also suitable for walls. This allows you to unify the design of the ceiling and the wall.
Linear Exclusive-line can be used indoors and outdoors as a suspended ceiling. For outdoor use, the solid wood parts are treated to withstand weather influences.
Derako systems are suitable for every building type. Due to their high resistance to fire and moisture, our systems can be safely used in healthcare, hospitality, education, public transport, recreation & leisure, retail and shopping centres, swimming pools 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 building companies. 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.
For the Linear Exclusive-line, Derako always offers full support during the design, engineering and assembly phases. The project is fully developed in detail in advance and discussed with all parties involved in the construction process.
Derako is a specialist in the field of wooden system solutions. We deliver very large projects for the utilities industry. We work closely with suppliers, wood and finishing experts for the best quality and delivery. Due to the industrial production process, Derako can process large volumes of wood in a controlled and constant stream. This allows us to guarantee a uniform quality and appearance within the natural properties of wood.
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 solid 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 (indoors and outdoors) we refer you to the downloads tab. We provide additional installation instructions for the Linear Exclusive-line. Are you interested in our products or would you like more information? Our advisors are happy to help.
Wood and finish
For the Linear Exclusive-line, we offer a limited range of wood types which give you a great deal of design freedom. The possibilities vary by application. Every wood type has its own natural properties. We examine per project which wood types complement your design.
Western Red Cedar
American Red Oak
American White Oak
The solid wood parts can be produced with three finishes. As standard, the wood is planed. If you prefer a rough and robust appearance, you can opt for our fine-sawn or rough-sawn finish. We’re happy to help you determine the right finish for your project.
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.
Get creative with colours
Would you like a special colour palette or more colour expression? Derako has various solutions. Multiple tones in a ceiling, striking colours or expressive contrasts with the neutral wood. Create your own style and unique appearance.
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 Base-line 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.
BREEAM and LEED
Derako ceiling systems contribute to obtaining credits within the BREEAM and LEED evaluation and certification systems. Ask our product advisors for more information.
Derako systems are sustainable, offer creative freedom and guarantee aesthetic wood solutions. For more information and details about all certifications, please see our menu item C2C and certification.
