Charred Timber Cladding

Charred Timber Cladding

Our ThermoChar range follows a specialist and bespoke process. QTD are the only UK producers of Charring Thermally Modified Hardwood and Softwood.

For centuries the Japanese perfected the art of charring/burning wood to make the wood resistant to fire, rot, insects and the UV effects from the sun. The process of charring/burning the outer surface brings out the richness of the different wood species grain structure. Therefore, varying the intensity of the burning process produces different finishes.

After coming across a burnt-out barn on a family holiday in the West Country In 2012, we loved the charred effect. We spent many years of experimenting and testing this process using 15 different species of wood. With the intention to create an interesting new range, we left the wood’s to age and weather over several seasons to see how they would perform in our UK climate. We subsequently too the lessons learnt and introduced into the marker our unique ThermoChar collection.

This labour intensive and dangerous process takes previously Thermally Modified hardwoods and softwoods produced at our factory and then charring/burning the outer surface in a variety of ways. Therefore, this process makes the boards far more fire-resistant than standard charred/burnt timbers such as larch and cedar etc.

Our ThermoChar® collection is sealed using our specially formulated: QFlex® - A flexible, UV, Class 0 Fire-Rated Sealer.
