Platowood Fraké

Fraké is a fast-growing deciduous wood sourced from responsibly managed forests with OLB certification in West Africa. Platowood Fraké is durable and has a sleek, stylish and exotic appearance. The surface has a subtle flame-like accent, highlighted by the platonisation process (hydrothermal modification). The pinstripes and pinholes that might be present in the wood give it a characteristic look. 

As a rugged wood type, Fraké is suited for several different kinds of application. Amongst others, for façade cladding and window frames and doors.

Platowood Fraké untreated


Platowood timber does not need to be finished when it is applied outdoor, because of the unique finishing process. Untreated, the wood is excellently processable and it evenly greys into a silvery hue under influence of the weather.
