Platowood is great for window frames: excellently processable and suitable Fraké wood for window frames. Frame wood of Platowood is supplied pre-sanded and without profile as a semi-manufactured product, and is KOMO certified. For a uniform appearance, the frame wood combines excellently with Platowood façade cladding.
Because of platonising (hydrothermal modification), the Platowood is much more dimensionally stable and low-maintenance than other wood types. By fingerjointing and laminating the wood, Platowood ensures optimised wood for frames in easily processable lengths.
The face side is also available as full wood (without finger joints).
Low maintenance and burglar-resistant
Where wooden window frames would normally need to be sanded and painted once every 5 or 6 years because of temperature fluctuations, the Platowood Fraké window frames can do with a maintenance interval of up to 15 years. Moreover, research by SHR has shown that the burglar resistance for Platowood Fraké window frames is much better than other cured wood types, and that it is comparable to Meranti.
Thanks to platonising, the wood is also suitable for outdoor application without the need for an additional finish. Over time, the wood will grey nicely and evenly.
