How it all works
- The outer part of the wooden planks is precision-baked at high temperatures to give the wood an exceptionally rich shade and bring out its distinctive texture. If the boards are being prepared for a fence, they are burnt on both sides.
- The boards are brushed with special brushes to achieve a distinctive wood grain.
- Cleaning dirt, burnt particles.
- The wood is coated with special natural oils.
The origins of the technology
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.
