Wood cladding gives a building a natural look. The external cladding is often image-enhancing for the building and the environment, with the cladding also providing the protection required for the façade behind.
Cladding of solid wood
The unique Derako cladding consists of slats of solid wood and anodised aluminium SLR profiles, complete with notches, based on the specific project, for the attachment of the patented stainless steel clips. The entire fastening of the wooden double facade is located on the back. No screws or nails are used and as a result, the appearance of the wood remains intact for a long time. This prevents damage to the wood and corrosion marks.
Wooden slats horizontal or vertical
The slats of the external wood cladding can be used horizontally or vertically. When fitted horizontally, the wooden slats have a rhombus/pane profile for a good run-off of precipitation. A membrane fabric may be placed behind the wood cladding to protect the façade or create the desired colour scheme. For the finish of the standard available types of wood, including WRC, larch, Oregon pine, thermal wood materials, Derako uses high-quality varnishes that are excellently suited to exterior applications.
Wind and weather-resistant wooden cladding
The entire construction of the wooden cladding is very resistant to extreme weather and the fastening of the solid wood slats to the clips has undergone extensive testing and has a very high break-out force. The distance between the SLR profiles is set based on wind conditions, type of terrain and building height and the type of wood chosen.
