Burnt wood for terrace

Burnt wood decks

One of our main activities is the production of burnt wood for terraces. We have accumulated extensive experience, meticulously processing each wood board down to the smallest detail. To achieve the highest quality terrace boards, we employ the latest technology and the centuries-old Japanese burning technique called ‘SHOU SUGI BAN.’ In recent times, it has become increasingly popular worldwide among people seeking unconventional, eco-friendly, and natural products for their homes. So, if you are looking for a long-lasting, eco-friendly, natural, and low-maintenance solution for your terrace – our products are just right for you.

What is the 'SHOU SUGI BAN' technology?

In short, it is a traditional Japanese wood burning technique. In Japan, it is also known as “Yakisugi.” The wood is initially heated with fire at a specific temperature, then allowed to cool, and the charred layer is brushed off with special brushes. Finally, the surface is coated with natural oils, giving it the desired shade of your choice.

The origin of "SHOU SUGI BAN" or "Yakisugi.

Even if you haven’t heard these words before, chances are you have seen photos featuring “Yakisugi” cladding. This wood treatment process is known as “SHOU SUGI BAN” in the Western world. The name came about due to a misinterpretation of the Japanese term, resulting in the use of these two different names. Essentially, they refer to the same technique, which translates from Japanese as “burnt cedar.

Traditionally, cedar was used in the East, but with the advancement of technology, other wood species can now be utilized. In our markets, the most popular choices are cedar, spruce, and pine.

This ingenious technology dates back centuries, believed to have emerged around the 18th century. The technique creates a charred appearance, highlighting the natural wood grain, while the intensity and texture of the surface can be adjusted by selecting different types of wood or levels of charring.

Although it may seem counterintuitive, the burning process actually makes the wood stronger and more durable. In Japan, this technology was used even before the application of paint or oil protection for wood cladding.

Advantages of burnt wood terrace:

  • Fire Resistance: Charred wood is more difficult to ignite compared to regular boards, making it a safer option.
  • Aesthetic Appeal: The look of the decking boards transforms; they take on a darker hue, the natural patterns are emphasized, lending a robust and luxurious appearance.
  • Eazy Maintenance: Charred wood cladding or deck boards used in exteriors require no annual upkeep. After 6-8 years, it is recommended to rejuvenate them with a single layer of oil.
  • Pest Protection: The charring process eliminates harmful organisms present in the wood, such as fungi and insects. Additionally, the wood’s sugars are completely burned off, making the timber unappetizing to parasites.
  • Durability: The boards become more robust and sturdy, resistant to weather conditions, moisture, UV rays, mold, and fungus, hence they last longer.
