Naturalness, aesthetics and durability. The burnt wood facade is not only resistant to environmental influences, but also gives the building a very aesthetic and natural look.

According to the leading architects and construction experts, the needs of the people who build homes are changing rapidly as the trend towards naturalness becomes more prevalent. Nowadays, people are looking for the most rational and sustainable solutions that can contribute to preserving the environment. More and more sustainable materials are being chosen for buildings. One of them is wood, which is processed using various technologies. The unique Japanese wood burning technology “Yakisugi” (or “Shou Sugi Ban”) is distinguished by its durability and resistance to environmental influences. Fire-treated wood not only ensures durability, which makes it particularly suited to the exterior of a house, but also helps to create a natural and at the same time original look for a residential house or other building. Burnt wood for the façade is the perfect choice for those looking for sustainable and unconventional solutions.

Yakisugi (or – Shou Sugi Ban), a traditional Japanese woodworking technique that has been around for centuries, was introduced to protect wood from the exposure to the elements. Burning shrinks the pores on the surface of the wood, making it stronger and more resilient. Wood treated in this way is virtually impermeable to water, resistant to fire, insects and rot, and less prone to splitting or cracking. At the same time, it retains its characteristics, naturalness, pattern and colour.

Do you want to create a natural and stylish look for your building, while ensuring sustainability and longevity? Yakiwood burnt wood is exactly what you need.

Work process

In the Yakisugi process, the wood is first burnt at high temperatures. The wood for the fence is burnt on both sides of the board. The burning gives the wood an exceptionally rich colour and brings out its distinctive texture. The wood is then brushed with special brushes to bring out its distinctive pattern. Dirt, fine burnt particles and dust are then removed. The final step is to coat the wood with a natural oil that does not contain any harmful substances. This treatment not only gives the wood an exceptional aesthetic appearance, but also provides effective protection against the effects of external factors (water, fire, UV rays, insects, rot). To ensure that the fence lasts longer, we use the most durable woods – spruce, pine and larch.
