Charred Timber Cladding

“Shou Sugi Ban”


Charred Timber Cladding has enjoyed a surge in popularity as of late, but 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 cladding from Corell Architectural Timber offers environmentally friendly benefits and, unique architectural possibilities that make it the right natural product for any project because 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 cladding are numerous!  Charred timber is created by cauterising the timber cell, which reduces it’s reaction to atmospheric change and thereby offers greater stability.

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

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.
