Yakisugi ( Shou Sugi Ban ) is a traditional Japanese method to preserve wood and has been used for hundreds of years in Japan. Inspired by these age-old Japanese traditions we char every board in our own oven. It requires a high degree of craftsmanship for this delicate process and needs considerable experience to master. We manufacture our burnt timber cladding in house where we can control the depth and consistancy of charring, brushing and sealing to create many styles and colours of our Yakisugi (Shou Sugi Ban) .
Our timbers are naturally durabile, however the shou sugi ban process increases durability further.
When detailed correctly for your project our shou sugi ban cladding can last 80 years and more.
The timber we use to produce our Yakisugi cladding is responsibly sourced from suppliers all across the globe.
We only supply timebr cladding that proves to have good to excellent stability in service.
With a low carbon footprint meaning it requires less energy to produce than any other construction material
Unlike other cladding materials shou sugi ban is fully recyclable at the end of it’s long life.
Yakedo is burnt in our in-house charring line and then coated with our specially developed oil to fix the char helping to hold that character for longer.More Info >
Fukai is produced using the very same method as Yakedo and Hikari, however we now brush the burnt timber cladding twice to deepen the contrast between late and early wood. Choose 6 colours or a clear option for hassel free maintenance.More Info >
