​The Forestlines® is the end product of years of study into the fire behavior of untreated woods.

​A revolutionary, circular system that is the very first in the world to bring untreated wood as the most ecological raw material to fire reaction class B in END USE.

​So how exactly does this revolution work?

​We would like to list some details:


​In reality, 'non-combustible strips' are already regularly used to slow down a fire. Just think of the non-combustible strips that people draw in the woods to contain forest fires.

​The Forestlines® uses non-combustible strips between the combustible wood in order to greatly reduce the spread of the fire.


Reduction of flammable surface

​To limit the heat released, it was a logical step to lower the potentially flammable surface. If the entire facade cladding burns, less heat will be released.

​If you opt for an aluminum width of 30mm, you will soon have a reduction of +- 30%.

Heat conduction

​Wood is a very good insulator, just think of the wooden handles of the old screwdrivers.

​Aluminum, on the other hand, is a superconductor, in the world it is the fourth best conductor in the world.

​The aluminum has been developed in such a way that it extracts the heat from the wood and distributes it over a (much) larger surface.

​Where the aluminum does not come into direct contact with the fire, it will even be able to cool.

​The facade can absorb much more heat before it ignites.


Aluminum melts at 660 degrees

​Although a fire test is about 800 degrees and aluminum melts at 660 degrees, you see that this hardly ever happens in the Forestlines.

​By choosing the right width, the heat will glow over the wood as aerodynamics and will have less direct contact with the aluminum.

Connector and stabilizer

​The Forestlines® has been developed in such a way that each wooden profile is linked to an aluminum profile. These aluminum profiles not only work as a connector, but also as a stabilizer.

​Each intelligent aluminum extrusion profile optimally absorbs the effect (shrinkage and expansion) of the coupled wooden plank.

​In this way you can suddenly introduce many more types of wood in a project than in the other facade systems.


A screw in wood and aluminum

​We are the absolute top in terms of fire technology, but we also want to be unparalleled in terms of construction.

​By putting a screw in the aluminum (straight) and wood (slanted), you absorb much more forces.

​In addition, we have left space in our aluminum profile so that the wood can and may always split at the screw.

​By inserting the screw on one side of the wood, the action of the wood will always take place on one side.

​The planks can warp much less and you will therefore always keep the clean lines.

Much more

​There are still many big and small things that have a major impact on fire safety.

​Obviously we cannot explain them all here.
