Siberian larch charred cladding - Shou Sugi Ban

Siberian larch charred cladding

Charred Larch

Shou Sugi Ban is an ancient Japanese wood burning technology that was used to preserve wood by burning surfaces with fire. The process involved burning the wood, cooling it, cleaning the surface and coating the boards with oil. Although fire can be thought to have a negative effect on wood, Shou Sugi Ban actually increases durability and is a natural means of preserving wood without chemicals and other surface treatments.

We have mastered an extraordinary Japanese technology that is used for centuries to make the wood even more unique. With this technology, we extract an amazing design from the Siberian larch wood that you can use in the interior and exterior. Our specialists are trained in the unique Shou Sugi Ban technique that lets us provide our customers the best quality and sustainability of our products.

Our goal is to provide customers with the very best quality products and guarantee that will last for a long time. We want our products to be the best and most unique part of your interior and exterior. Siberian larch charred cladding is high quality, stylish and comes with a choice of 5 char levels.

Our charred timber cladding is made from “A Grade” larch which has been fire treated. We use larch, rather than cedar cladding, for its superior qualities and durability.

  • Charring the surface of the wood without reaching complete combustion creates a carbon layer. This surface layer is water resistant which makes the wood beneath more durable.
  • The charring process changes the chemical composition of the wood. This means the nutrition sources that fungus and mould spores need are removed.
  • In order for the charred cladding or fencing to re-ignite, it requires much higher temperatures and longer contact with a flame source.
Why charred wood cladding?
Traditional Japanese method shou sugi ban, also known as yakisugi, makes charred wood resistant to harsh weather conditions and ensures it is durable in time.
