Suyaki, the traditional finish for Shou Sugi Ban, showcases the original char of timber cladding. The 100% UV-proof char repels water, and slows photodegradation requiring minimal maintenance.

 

Charred at 1060°C and immediately spritzed to temper it, we apply the first oil coat at the factory for comprehensive coverage on all sides. This locks in char particles, preventing black residue and extending the char's life.

While it naturally erodes over decades, reapplying oil every 5-7 years ensures prolonged durability. Embrace the evolving finish, revealing the beautiful grain beneath, ultimately transitioning to a Gendai finish.

 Gendai. Charred and smooth brushed. Dark and moody.

Gendai, our highly popular charred timber finish, features a smooth texture that accentuates the wood grain's inner beauty, yet carried a subtle embossed pattern from where the char once was.

 

Achieved through deep charring followed by vigorous brushing with a high-speed quad head brushing unit, Gendai comes with a factory-coated oil stain in clear or black, enhancing the lifespan of the Yakisugi timber and showcasing its beautiful grain.

 

As the UV protective layer of char has been removed, to maintain colour reapply stain every 3-5 years to preserve its ebony black appearance. Or you can allow the colour to fade and slowly change over time.

Pika Pika offers a distinctive textural finish and striking contrast achieved through a single intense burn and double brushing process.

 

This specialized charred and brushed timber cladding finish is receptive to colored stains, excelling in absorbing oil stains and accentuating the wood's inherent beauty.

 

The second brush, a specialized head, intensifies timber textures, cleans residual char, and restores the natural color of the wood, with some timbers the winter grain retains its distinctive black ridges adding contrast to texture.
