About Burntwood

Technique

Burnt Wood is a viable alternative to pressure-impregnated wood. It is a waterproofing method which has been used as far back as the Viking Age and which has later been refined in the Japanese building culture.

When the upper millimeters of the tree are carbonated, the sugars are burned in the wood at the same time, so that the harmful microorganisms have nothing to live on. Chemical substances are not used for the impregents, as they are the wood's own substances, which, through burning, protect the surface – a surface that is both beautiful and extremely weatherproof.

A choice of "burnt wood" as a façade material will experience shades that vary from charcoal to shiny silver. Each board gets a unique surface that, with its nisted appearance, is experienced both matte and shiny.

"Burnt Wood" is a impregnation method that has its roots firmly planted in history, but which is at the same time a modern response to today's demands for sustainable construction.
