Hardwood Timber Cladding

Howarth Timber & Building Supplies is proven specialist in the supply of Platowood Frake hardwood timber cladding. Sometimes also referred to as Afara or Black Afara, Platowood Frake is a premium heat modified exotic African timber ideal for exterior and interior timber cladding applications.

Supplied in partnership with Platowood, a leading manufacturer and supplier of thermally treated timber, Frake (Afara) is a truly revolutionary product. Born from exotic FSC certified African Frake (Afara), the materials in their natural state have little or no general commercial value. Following thermal treatment with the proven Platowood process a striking natural finish and unmatched exterior performance is achieved.

With all of the benefits of the thermal treatment process, Platowood Frake (Afara) is ideal for timber cladding projects where a highly attractive, knot-free result is required. A further benefit is the availability of long length and wide width boards, making for ease and speed of installation.

We are able to provide a comprehensive selection of timber species in cladding profiles specific to your exact requirements. Whatever your project requirements, you can be sure of Howarth Timber & Building Supplies renowned reliability and customer service.
