Charred Timber Claddings 

“Shou Sugi Ban”

 

Charred Timber Claddings has enjoyed a surge in popularity as of late. The ancient Japanese technique “Shou Sugi Ban”  has been re-invented to produce some beautiful results through modern interpretations and techniques. 

A range of charred timber claddings from Corell Architectural Timber offers environmentally friendly benefits and unique architectural possibilities that make it the right natural product for any project.  The charring process produces a rawness and a realness of character. The shou sugi ban process involves charring the wood, cooling it, cleaning by brushing and then finishing the wood with an oil.

The benefits of charred timber claddings are numerous!  Charred timber is created by cauterising the timber cell, which reduces it’s reaction to atmospheric change and thereby offers greater stability. The charred finish look will not fade and is virtually maintenance free. With an increase in requests for designs that incorporate a dark finish that will last, charred timber fits the bill perfectly and, the process allows for varying levels of charring to be achieved, so tones of browns and blacks can be created to meet the desired colour for any project.

A range of timbers are available to char including Siberian Larch, Western Red Cedar, Accoya and European Oak.

 

The Process

We can create varying levels of colours through the burning and brushing process.

Stains can also be added to produce unique architectural facades both for internal or external projects.
