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.
