Sanuki is burned and laminated European oak. The special thing about Sanuki is that the European oak is internally reinforced with steel, and externally reinforced with resin on a natural basis. This provides extra strength without losing the unique character of the robust wood. This European oak panel is welded continuously (finger jointed) to prevent rust. Sanuki is available in various thicknesses (20, 30 or 40 mm thick) and all sizes (up to 80 cm wide and 350 cm long). Thanks to its distinctive pattern, Sanuki is the perfect product for covering interior walls aesthetically and sustainably. Sanuki is also very suitable for making original furniture and objects.

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.”
