The linear wall system consists of solid wooden slats on a specially developed sub-frame. This construction consists of an anodised aluminium SLR profile, which depending on the specific project, come with boreholes for fastening a patented RVS clip. The slats are supplied in various lengths, but upon request, fixed lengths are also possible. The ends of the slats are connected to each other by a pre-tooled end tongue and groove joint. Different sizes and types of wood can be combined together. In complex projects, the profiles can also be marked to indicate the correct position in the work. This means a clear and prompt installation procedure can be followed at the construction site.
Derako works exclusively with solid wood. Each type of wood has it´s own natural characteristics such as colour, grain, structure, knots and size tolerance.

For the linear wall system, the slats can be produced in a size of a minimum of 63 mm to a maximum of 140 mm wide. This system can be completely demountable. The minimum joint size is then 12 mm. If you go for the system in fixed, then the slats can be produced in a maximum width of 185 mm. The minimum slat thickness is 15 mm. With the ingenious fastening structure, various slat widths, slat thicknesses and joint sizes can be combined in one system.
The Derako solid wood linear system is in various versions suitable as a sustainable interior wall. The solid wood slats are invisibly fitted by means of a specially developed sub frame, consisting of an anodised aluminium profile that has been project specifically provided with cut-outs for the attachment of patented stainless steel clips. Because of this ingenious construction this system is very useful for complex designs. It can be made to measure as desired and various slat sizes and types of wood and finishes, there are a number of possibilities for the appearance of the wall.
If there is a large overhang the linear wall system may also be used for outdoors. The wooden slats are then finished for exterior use. It is important that the wood is not directly exposed to weather influences. Should that be the case then we would recommend the Derako façade system. Not all kinds of wood are suitable for exterior walls. The Derako advisers will be pleased to inform you about the possibilities.
The linear wall system is also suitable for curved or arched applications. These can be applications in which the walls are curved or where they flow smoothly into the ceilings. The architect's creativity is the guiding principle and the system itself is not a limiting factor. Just as with a flat application, the unique carrier system comes completely prefabricated.
Naturally Curved Wood
Thanks to the Derako carrier system and technical adjustments to the product, it is now possible to shape the wood for the slats naturally. Unlike curved ceilings where the carrier system is bent but slats remain straight, for this version of the system the curving is in the wood itself. In this way very special, organic and never displayed before, wall shapes can be realised.
By combining slats of varying thickness and width, you are able to give the wall a unique appearance. A random pattern ensures further reinforcement of the natural and casual effect, while there is a big choice of wood types and measurement combinations.
Finish / installation
The wooden slats can have a planed, fine-sawn or rough-sawn surface finish. Depending on the request, the right type of finish can be selected in consultation with the Derako consultants.
Fire retardant treatment
Fire retardance is an important element for any wood application. To be able to comply with fire safety regulations, Derako systems are treated, if necessary, so that they are fire retardant. This is done by means of the vacuum and pressure method, whereby the wood is impregnated with a fire retardant substance.
With these treatments Derako makes sure that the slats and panels, used as a coating/finishing material meet the European standard EN13964. The treatment process is performed according to KOMO guidelines and is periodically inspected by the SKH so that the required CE marking can be employed.
Designing a wall design with total freedom of creativity; this is not a problem for the Derako systems. In addition to various types of wood
in a transparent finish, Derako also has a wide range of colours available. All versions of the wooden wall systems are finished as standard with a high-quality non film-forming varnish to protect the wood against moisture, dust and dirt. This finish adds a nice touch to the wood and the natural tones and structures are preserved. The wooden slats may also have a planed, fine-sawn or rough-sawn surface finish and for each application, the right system coating is determined that is necessary to properly protect the wood.
Colour Wash varnishes – Lively SOHO colours and sparkling Metallic Wood
If you want to do something special with coloured varnishes, Derako has the Colour Wash varnishes that will give the inside of your building that unique touch. The varnish finish series is split into two colour lines known as SOHO and Metallic Wood and is used on American ash. The SOHO colour line stands for vivid colours and with a Metallic Wood varnish finish, you can create wooden ceilings and walls with a sparkling metal finish. You can decide how the varnishes are used within the design. Using inserted coloured panels, striking accents can be created in a ceiling or wall or the whole thing can be given a uniform colourful finish. Read more about Colour Wash varnishes.
Construction and installation
As far as the installation is concerned, the linear wall system meets both the designer's and installer's demands. The light weight aluminium profiles can be outlined easily and therefore the assembly time on site is greatly reduced. The stainless steel clips are fitted to the profiles during the production phase. Placing the slats is done by manually pushing them onto the clips, and after that they are permanently secured in the slat's groove. For complex projects the profiles can also be marked to indicate the correct position in the work. Because of this an unambiguous and fast installation procedure can be followed. On delivery Derako makes sure the smallest details are taken care of. The linear wall system is delivered with assembly gloves and a pot of matching varnish, as standard. Under the tab 'Downloads' you will find an extensive installation manual.
The Derako linear wall systems are fully demountable. Because of the aluminium profile's and stainless steel clip's ingenious attachment structure all slats can be dismantled. In the Derako installation manual there is a clear description about how this works.
Wood has a limited environmental impact
Wood is a natural product, very durable and lasts for years. Industrial wood processing has a very limited environmental impact and wood itself stores CO2. This helps of course to deliver environmentally friendly, healthy and responsible products. But Derako does more ...
Cradle to Cradle®
Derako constructs and works according to the Cradle to Cradle® principle that not only looks at our present needs but also at the possibilities for future generations. Within the five Cradle to Cradle defined quality categories, we are constantly working on improvements.
Derako wants to be sure that all products have a lasting positive influence on human health and the environment. A lot of thought is given to the system- and finishing materials. For example the Derako varnish finish is environmentally friendly and the Derako solid wood system has a very low emission and A+ certified.
FSC® and PEFC certified types of wood
In addition to investment in the field of materials and production processes, Derako also invests in various certificates and eco- labels. In this way we meet the criteria set by the government on sustainable purchasing. Derako is FSC® and PEFC certified and delivers systems on request, and where possible we deliver sustainable and certified types of wood. The advisors at Derako will be delighted to let you know about all the options.
BREEAM and LEED
Derako also has a number of system designs that can make a substantial contribution in obtaining credits from BREEAM and LEED. Derako's advisors will be delighted to inform you further.
