We char wood by following a traditional Japanese wood charring method Shou Sugi Ban, also known as Yakisugi, which gives the charred timber a unique texture, makes it resistant to harsh weather conditions and ensures it is durable in time.
We produce two types of burnt timber cladding:
For the finishing coat, we offer a special sealer and oils.
We provide shiplap, tongue and groove, and squared profiles.
Charred spruce is our most affordable product. The burnt timber can be used in exteriors. However, the spruce cladding is only suitable in very mild weather conditions since its charred layer is much weaker when compared to burnt larch.
Charred larch is our most popular product with the best quality-price ratio. Burnt larch cladding is very durable and, therefore, it is perfectly suitable for exteriors.
Thermo Frake, is a high-quality and beautiful hardwood. Frake is also named Black Limba. There are no knots. Thermo Frake cladding is more affordable than Accoya or Kebony.
Accoya is a premium choice; the charred layer is unique and beautiful. Charred Accoya has the best dimensional stability. There are no knots.
Charred Kebony is also a premium choice. The charred layer is unique and beautiful. Charred Kebony has good dimensional stability. There are no knots.
At first, we char 2-3 mm of the timber cladding surface. Then, we brush the char away. Under the char layer, there is a strong surface with a unique texture.
The burnt timber cladding is weatherproof, and its surface does not change its colour in time. Also, the charred layer is resistant to mould, insects, water and even fire. In Japan, the Shou Sugi Ban technique for preserving wood was introduced hundreds of years ago.
The charred layer protects the timber and makes it more durable. Charred timber can last for over 50 years. However, in harsh weather conditions, the char layer needs reinforcement. We have the knowledge and skills to provide you with the best solution per your needs.
Producing charred wood requires accuracy, both in the preparation process and in burning the wood. We always select and prepare the best material and measure the charring time precisely to ensure high-quality output.
Charred wood is a unique yet modern and sustainable solution for a variety of designs. Charred timber is suitable for exteriors as well as interiors. For exteriors, charred wood is mainly used for cladding, decking and fencing.
We produce charred timber cladding by following a traditional Japanese method Shou Sugi Ban. We do not use gas or other fuels for charring timber. We use gas only for igniting a fire. Instead of wasting natural resources, we use advanced technology where the wood burns itself.
In cooperation with the Tallinn University of Technology (TalTech), we have conducted research to prove the durability of the charred layer over time. In addition, we tested the charred wood to find the best finishing options for preserving the carbon layer without the surface becoming greasy.
