You have no doubt heard about the advantages of using charred timber cladding in Australia, as it is the perfect process to provide timbers with long term durability. Besides, it offers a long term maintenance free colour fast option. External timber cladding offers an immensely versatile option that enables you to create structures that are not only durable but reflect a natural appeal. This makes our charred timber wall cladding solutions a superior choice.
The charring process creates a carbon crust that is U.V resistant and not susceptible to "Silvering out". It is also well documented that the charring process improves timbers durability and resistance to insect attack. Best off all it looks great!
Eco Timber only uses Australian hardwoods, all of which attract a BAL 29 fire rating, and are class one durability, perfectly suited for most properties and areas.
Typically, the species we use are Red Ironbark, Queensland Spotted Gum and Blackbutt. All external cladding is pre-oiled following the charring process with Cutek CD50 (penetrative oil).
Any internal applications are sealed with a Matte water based polyurethane to prevent carbon residue coming off the surface and marking people or items.
Lead time is typically two (2) to three (3) weeks following a confirmed order and up to 4 weeks on set length orders.
The material comes in a random length specification or set lengths at an additional 30%.
Nominated finish can be either our “Standard” or “Deep” ( crackled) Charred finish when ordering.
All our shiplap is profiled with an 8mm rebate.
“3D” shiplap profiles are a combination of mixed width and mixed depth profiles. All the profiles are T&G for improved stability;
Charring of timber screens, posts, singular “3D” cladding profile selections and custom profiles are also available upon request.
Our preference is always to pre drill and screw fix through the tongue side of the cladding using a minimum 6-8 gauge screw with a black powder coated head OR consider Blackheadz by ECO TIMBER GROUP our new self drilling stainless steel screw, Perfect for this application in face fix or secret fix profiles! It is also our preference that a 45mm x 19mm or greater hardwood batten be applied to the stud frame, over your moisture membrane, for maximum purchase at a recommended 400-450mm centre spacing.
ECO TIMBER Blackheadz are our new 10 guage self drilling, stainless steel, 50mm trim head screws, developed for our Charred timber and cladding systems. Currently available in boxes of 500, Blackheadz have the ability to self-drill into timbers that are 8.6 janka rating and above, to expedite the installation process, whilst disguising the stainless head for all application methods of our cladding.
Once the cladding has been installed, we recommend one coat of BlackASH CUTEK preservative be applied. This will seal any end cuts and fix blemishes from the install process.
