Charred Timber Cladding

What is Charred Timber Cladding?

Charred Timber Cladding is a traditional technique which originated by the Japanese in the 18th Century for cladding buildings. This method is referred to Shou Sugi Ban which translates to ‘burnt cedar wood’. This process can be applied to various timber species offering their own aesthetics.

  • Resistant to fire, rot and insects.

  • The selected Timber Species can offer a durability for up to 80+ years – pending of depth of burn style.

Charred Timber Cladding provides a unique appearance as each natural board offers different grain detail. The process enhances this grain pending on the depth of burn which makes it attractive to external finishes on domestic and commercial projects. This process can also be applied to internal walls.
