Unitised Wood Facades
Parea, eco-designed wooden slat cladding, offers architectural solutions for building envelopes. It provides the perfect alternative to Cedar Larch products.
Architects and designers can choose the most appropriate products – ceilings, interior wall cladding, openwork built-up cladding – based on their specific criteria. Laudescher industrie products offer a wide range of advantages: ease of cutting components to size, integration of technical elements, flexibility of mounting systems and durability. The design of the products, combined with standard mounting systems on the market, ensures cost savings for companies as a result of shorter installation times.
Our ranges are available in a wide variety of installation options capable of meeting today’s numerous regulatory requirements and the various architectural constraints specific to each building. Last but not least, the nature of the products ensures that they will look good for many years to come. They are subject to neither premature ageing nor the development of mould. They are extremely tough and can be handled repeatedly during maintenance operations without risk of deterioration. They offer exceptional dimensional stability and mechanical resistance.
Through its designs, Laudescher industrie combines the traditional attributes of wood – tonal qualities – with open-ended, energetic and unique geometric shapes suitable for the boldest architectural projects. The panel design of the external wall cladding makes it easy to mount and adaptable to each application. It is installed with the external wall insulation on masonry or timber-framed buildings, and can be mounted without a frame on masonry or cladding sheets. Patterns, vibrations, surface finishes, volumes and shapes give buildings a unique visual identity, bringing ceilings, walls and external façades to life: our designs ensure durability and guarantee uniqueness.

Wood is a material largely made up of polysaccharides (cellulose and hemicellulose) and lignins that will be degraded through exposure to the photons in ultraviolet light. It is this photo-degradation of the lignins, further accentuated by water, that is responsible for changes in the colour of the wood. Woods installed outside without any physical protection are subject to greying.
Pale uniformly coloured wood, small knots, clearly visible grain patterning, straight fine grain
Orangey blonde wood, medium to large knots, straight medium grain, clearly visible and marked grain patterning
Wax Colour finish
Care for and enhance the material through factory application of the Wax Colour process. A wide range of wood tone colours for a durable, impressive, natural and environmentally-friendly finish. Fungicidal, anti-UV and non-film forming properties with 10-year guarantee.
For the Wax Colour finish : maintain wood by applying the Wax Colour finishing product every 5 to 6 years after cleaning the surface. This operation can only be carried out by qualified companies that have received training and are approved to do so by Laudescher industrie. For the ” untreated natural ” finish : no maintenance required. The wood will turn adopt a naturally grey shade over time.
