What is Charred Wood (Shou Sugi Ban)?

[fa icon="calendar'] 05/23/2018 / by Steve Collins posted in Metal Siding, Interior Metal, DIY, Colors

Charred Wood is the process of lightly applying open flame to a wood plank to char the surface of the board.  The charred exterior helps to weatherproof the siding and act as a deterrent to insects.

Shou Sugi Ban is a commonly used variation of the Japanese word Yakisugi. In Japanese Yaki means to heat with fire, and Sugi means Japanese Cedar. Ban translates to a plank, in this case a wood plank. 

Shou Sugi Ban was first seen used in 18th century Japan as a technique for charring the outer layer of a wooden plank (usually cedar) to help protect the façade against weather and insects. In recent years, the visual appeal of this technique has been adopted by architects and designers around the world.  Commonly referred to as Charred Wood or Burnt Wood, this technique can be applied to a range of wood siding panels.

At a recent AIA Conference trade show, our corrugated panels were laid out.  Their fingers would follow the ripples of color from Brimstone to Rustic Copper to Jade Stone.  Finally they would look up at us and say, “Wow, I never thought you could use metal for interior.”  Behind their eyes you could see their projects flashing by with modern rustic metal in place of boring grey walls.
