The old Japanese carpenters had already found a very good solution to improve the durability and resistance of wood in coastal areas where salitre and moisture spoiled very quickly.
This solution was as simple as the fire! Thus Japanese technique "Shou Sugi Ban" was born in Japanese (焼 杉 板) that literally is translated like "Board of Cremado Cedar".
The wood that is applied to the technique Shou Sugi Ban manages to create a charred protective layer that gives it a durability of up to 90 and 100 years. That yes, giving a very different aspect to the conventional one, creating a style of wood, but with aesthetic beauty and at the same time greatly improving technical performance.
When burning the wood a charred layer generates that it grants technical improvements and benefits with respect to the wood without burning:
- The layer of carbon resists, without deteriorating or changing color, the effect of ultraviolet (UV) rays of the sun, salinity and humidity.
- The burned layer gives a very good protection to the wood to avoid plagues and insects. Thermites do not support charred wood, which will keep them away.
- It is a truly ecological treatment, since it does not involve the consumption of chemical or toxic products to protect the wood.
If you want a burnt wood home, you just have to tell us! We will show you different burn samples so that you choose the one you like the most!
Burned wood is a very old novelty, which today revolutionizes the aesthetics and the benefits of wood constructions and buildings!
