Wooden ceiling

The solid wooden suspended ceiling systems are not only extremely durable, they also give spaces a luxurious, contemporary look. In addition, Derako wooden ceilings meet the European fire resistance requirements with regard to the use of wood as cladding material and all systems are C2C certified. The systems are also very suitable for spaces in which the acoustics are important.

Designs of a wooden ceiling

At Derako, we work exclusively on the basis of projects, whereby the architect’s design is always the starting point. The system is available in various designs including the open and closed linear system, the multi-panel linear and the grill system. In addition to the standard systems, Derako also has a number of specially developed designs available. Most versions are also suitable for use as exterior ceilings.

Curved wooden ceiling and cladding

Derako wooden ceilings, both in the linear and grill design, are excellently suited for use in curved or arched shape. Here the creativity of the architect is the guiding principle. The rails are curved to the desired radius and fixed. These can be suspended with quick hangers or nonius hangers. As with flat ceiling / cladding, the unique supporting system comes completely prefabricated.


With a wide range of wood types, system types, sizes and finishes, there are a large number of options available for the look of the ceiling. The Derako wooden ceiling system has a good acoustic value and is therefore often used in public buildings.

Demountable wooden ceiling

Derako wooden ceilings are available as fixed or demountable ceilings. With the carrier system with carrier and clip, the slats in the linear system can be supplied 50% demountable. With the grill system, the ceiling is fully demountable with the half-lap dowel joint. By using a demountable ceiling, any repairs and maintenance works can be carried out on the overhead technical installations. You will find all the information on dismantling in the Derako installation instructions.
