Yakisugi Cladding

Enhanced grain burnt to perfection

Due to Accoya’s outstanding stability, the Japanese burnt wood process works well. Charred timber cladding boards don’t twist, distort or warp when subjected to charring, making it ideal for ease of installation on a building site.

Durability is not only enhanced when using Accoya but the charring prolongs any finish making it long lasting even with the additional stability of Accoya once in situ.

An additional feature of Accoya, a solid wood, is that the grain is emphasised much more than any other timber due to how well the process chars Accoya. The process makes it an attractive timber for exterior cladding and even internal feature walls.

What is Yakisugi?

What is Yakisugi?

In recent years an ancient Japanese burnt wood technique, Yakisugi, has been rediscovered and is now often referred to as charred wood.

Yakisugi is the traditional art of charring cedar, originally a way of preserving the wood, essentially making it more durable. Typically used for cladding, architects and designers across the world are specifying charred timber and are no longer restricted to species. Accoya is ideal for charring.

Case Study

Various shades of charring

A residential home in Enfield, London, was extended out the back of the property and charred Accoya wood was the chosen material for the cladding.

The cladding was charred in three varying shades, creating depth to the extension; light brush “Shizen”, Graphite “Seizo” and Anthracite “Gen no”. For the posts, a deep black effect was chosen to define and accentuate, in particular, the large glass opening of the extension into the back garden.



Over the past two decades, Accoya wood has been tested extensively by 3rd parties. Their reports showcase the excellent performance and outstanding benefits of Accoya wood, and, in particular, Accoya cladding.
