An ancient cladding tradition with reliably modern performance
Hundreds of years ago, Japanese woodworkers discovered that they could prolong the life of wood by charring the exposed surface. This process, called shou sugi ban, created enviable, stunning results that are still highly in demand today.
Traditional shou sugi ban is beautiful, but using it can be problematic. Most shou sugi ban leaves only the charred surface resistant to rot. Ignite provides the look of shou sugi ban, with durability all the way to the core. And unlike charred wood, Ignite has no
Ignite by Thermory offers the shockingly realistic look of charred wood, without the flames.
IGNITE by THERMORY mimics the traditional look of shou sugi ban with the added benefits of thermal modification.
- Stained, brushed and embossed to recreate the texture of charred wood without the mess and residue
- Thermally modified to create consistent rot resistance to the core
- High level of dimensional stability
- Highly controlled process ensures reliable results every time
Get The Look. Ditch The Torch.
Ignite by Thermory creates its signature pattern by embossing, brushing and coating thermally modified wood. Unlike modern shou sugi ban, which is often created by hand with a torch, Ignite is created with a deceptively flame-free process.
