Structurally dressed surface

We have drawn inspiration from the proud traditions rooted in navigation and the seas around us and have designed an exciting surface structure for wooden façade profiles. The plane iron is sharpened into a special design. As the boards run through the plane iron, the plane iron is driven in and out across the surface of the board.

This process creates the waves in the surface of the wood. A similar effect is achieved through brushing - structural dressing is simply more cost-effective in production.

A structurally dressed surface is perfect for harbour projects, holiday cottages on the beach, houses on the fringes of the forest and anywhere else you would like to have a 'vibrant' surface.

Paintcut surface

A paintcut surface is a surface that is rough or looks like it has been cut with a band saw but without traces from the blade. This is an advantage for e.g. double-sided overlap profiles for the FT system fence where almost the same surface design is achieved on both sides of the fence.

Paintcut is a little less rough than profiles cut with a band saw, and the surfaces are not 100% identical. They should therefore not be mixed in a façade cladding.

One advantage of paint-cut façade cladding is a clean-cut- some would say more modern - surface than with profiles cut with a band saw. Paint and oil also adhere better than is the case with façade profiles dressed smooth.

Rough surface

The rough-cut surface is probably the most widely used surface on wood sold in Denmark for exterior cladding. The rough surface is a good choice if the wood is to be painted afterwards.

The surface may vary although it is the "same" surface: the wood can be cut using various methods. A common way of sawing the wood is using a band saw that leaves a rough but uniform surface with vertical kerfs.

Another method is to divide the timber by driving 2 large circular saw blades in from each side of the timber. This also creates a rough surface. There may be visible traces in the middle of the plank where the blades met due to imprecision in the setting of the blades. It is also possible to see or sense the crescent-shaped round shape of the blades in the cut on the surface of the plank.

Frøslev uses band saws.

Dressed surface

Dressed profiles and planks are smooth on the surface and often with either rounded or bevelled edges and corners. Façade cladding, profile boards, wood studs and special structural timber are examples of wood that is or can be dressed. The wood is comfortable to work with because users will not get splinters in their hands and because it complies with clear, set dimensions.
