Applications of Wood of Fire Charred Boards

Typically, the first application that comes to mind for charred boards is charred cladding.

The process of wood carbonization, which involves restricting air and burning off organic matter, makes the wood more resistant to decay. Nevertheless, over the long term, under the influence of various factors, it can degrade.

Applications of Wood of Fire Charred Boards

It’s a natural train of thought since the Japanese-originated idea of wood preservation through the Shou Sugi Ban method aimed to protect precisely the cladding boards, which were exposed to heightened external factors. Additionally, the facades of modern homes in the shape of rustic barns, often following bold concepts of contemporary architects, are frequently finished with charred boards in various color variations and degrees of charring, adding unique charm to the buildings while providing additional durability and resistance to wooden cladding.

Another popular way to utilize charred boards is their installation as interior wall decorations. This serves as an alternative to plaster, wallpaper, tiles, and other forms of wall finishing. Charred boards on interior walls will add unique character to all rooms, regardless of their purpose, and besides their visual appeal, they also offer significantly greater resistance to mechanical damage, dirt, or scratches compared to painted, plastered, or wallpapered walls. This is especially true for brushed variants of our charred boards, which are characterized by the highest resistance to mechanical damage. Therefore, the wood charring technique using the Shou Sugi Ban method used in the production of available charred boards will be suitable for rooms, offices, commercial premises, or conference rooms.

An interesting solution is also the use of charred boards as decorations for fireplaces. The way we impregnate the wood reduces its flammability, which limits the possibility of the wood re-igniting. In other words, wood that has already been charred once is significantly more difficult to ignite again, and additional impregnation with specially designed agents makes the material resistant to high temperatures.

Among the implemented ideas using charred wood, it’s worth highlighting the use of heavily charred boards as material for creating a wooden countertop. Another idea was to make doors, where the wings were entirely made of charred boards, which were then brushed. We also encountered cabinet doors and kitchen fronts entirely covered with charred elements. There are truly numerous applications for charred wood, ranging from cladding to small items with inserts of charred wood.
