Frake is a West African hardwood that is beautiful, but often used inside plywood due to its lower stability and durability.
However, when treated with our Thermodified process, it acquires a golden colour as well as enhanced stability and durability, making this FSC® certified timber perfect for cladding projects.
FSC certified Frake cladding weathers relatively quickly to a beautiful silver grey which is much prized by end users. See the picture below of project Old Bearhurst, by architects Duggan Morris.
