Afrormosia, sometimes also called Assamela, is durable to highly durable African wood from Cameroon and Congo. It is a beautiful golden brown heartwood suitable for both indoors and outdoors, and it is praised for its structure and durability (class 1/2). FAS (First and second) guarantees top quality: this facade cladding is as good as free of sapwood, heartwood, and other defects. It has a straight thread (sometimes cross-thread) with fine grain. Afrormosia is well resistant to the effects of acids and other chemicals. This facade cladding is easy to work with, both with machine and by hand. The finish of Afrormosia is also easy. Stains and varnishes water and a solvent are both suitable for this. Under the influence of the weather conditions, its warm colour will fade slightly.
A façade cladding that is placed with you by our team means that you get a 10-year warranty on this façade.

Story Jonas, Installer facade cladding

Take it from an experienced joiner: no wall is straight. That is why a straight-lined structure is placed first when fitting wooden façade cladding. “With control screws. This is how we keep everything level. To the millimetre”
Says Jonas Allegaert. For the past four years he has specialized in finishing facades and exterior wood accents. "External joinery is always challenging. You never know what the wall looks like, and in particular how straight or crooked it is. In practice, we always work with a laser to place the structure. With or without insulation. It’s a case of being alert and doing the maths.”
“You never know what the wall looks like, and in particular how straight or crooked it is.”
As team leader Jonas has a view of all the detail relating to the finish. From modest cladding to a complete office building or apartment. "Preparation is everything. I run through what needs to be done and what needs extra attention with the project manager on a daily basis. It requires efficient organisation to make everything run smoothly.
"I prefer working with ayous. It’s a soft wood, but very stable and always perpendicular.
More to the point all wood is different. In the words of Jonas: “Some wood species are nervous." Which means that the weather and temperatures are more influential in terms of expansion. “We factor this in and use expansion joints. The clearance depends on the type of wood. "I prefer working with ayous. It’s a soft wood but very stable and always perpendicular. Padauk is also very pleasant to work with. It ages well. That’s how I prefer it.”
