The Forestlines® is a revolution in the world of wooden facade cladding.
It is a circular facade system in which untreated(!) wood is brought to the absolute top of building materials as the most ecological raw material.
Forestlines® is the very first to ensure that untreated wood can reach fire reaction class B in END USE.
This is due to the combination of all kinds of scientific laws such as micro-compartmentalization, heat conduction, reduction of flammable surface, etc.
This way you get facade cladding that approaches the absolute top in both fire and structural engineering and still gives you the opportunity to personalize according to wood type, plank width, etc.
The Forestlines concept is the end result of a thorough, many years of scientific study. The very best fire class with untreated wood was sought and found by means of trail-and-error.
Our own study was then combined with the final project of a (very) ambitious student, which gave us a better understanding of fire safety and the influence of wood properties on the fire behavior of wood.
Over the years, countless fire tests were organized and we came to Forestlines®.
The Forestlines® product is now supported with a very high knowledge of fire and fire tests.
The Forestlines® is a revolution in the world of wood, both in terms of fire and construction.
The system offers the opportunity to make optimal use of wood as a natural product by having much less sawing loss.
At the same time, the connector also works as a stabilizer that optimally absorbs the effect of wood.
The Forestlines® is therefore one of the very best opportunities to integrate lesser-known types of wood (LKTS) into the market.
We are happy to play the card of global biodiversity, both in nature and in the project market.
The impact of the Forestlines® has not just passed away.
In recent years, no less than fourteen international prizes have been won, especially the innovation and ecological prizes.
This ranges from the main prize of the Red Dot Awards 2022 – The best innovative product' to the Architecture Masterprize, German Design Awards, etc.
FSC® is a global, not-for-profit organization with high brand recognition. The FSC® certificate guarantees that the wood comes from a sustainably managed forest, where both environmental and social aspects are monitored. Ask about our FSC® certified products.
The circular facade system Forestlines® strives for the optimal use of FSC®.
Two clip widths and countless possibilities in wood.
High level of finish, invisibly screwed.
Simple and fast installation.
Absolute minimum of cutting loss = price advantage. The wood and aluminum should not come together on a back slat.
Innovative screw with wood cutter and torx head.
Minimum of spiders, insects, dirt, etc.
Top quality aluminum.
Strong scratch-resistant coating.
Stronger protection for particularly aggressive environments (coastal area, industrial area, etc).
Top quality wood and processing in-house.
The profile has been developed in consultation with craftsmen and architects
A registered trademark, several registered models and patented by Paulussen Houthandel BV.
Aluminum profiles in two standard widths, 20 and 30mm between the wood. These profiles can be combined
Absolute top in all circumstances. Good scratch resistance.
Thinner end to make it easier to find the groove. Thickening to clamp the profile.
Small screw line to fix the screw location.
No pre-formed holes so that the beams behind always come out.
Invisibly screwed and nicely countersunk screw head.
Special milling to countersink the screw head.
By doing the production in-house, we can also offer other sizes. This allows each project to be optimally personalized.
Width and thickness options depending on stock.
The profiles and dimensions shown are indicative and do not always correspond to the classified profiles and dimensions.
