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 carbonized 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 of aesthetic beauty and at the same time greatly improving technical performance. This layer withstands the effect of ultraviolet rays of the sun, salinity and humidity. In addition to insects and pests.
