We will not let you in on every secret detail up our sleeves, but we can give you a short rundown of how we manufacture the charred wood fences. The technology originated in Ancient Japan, but we adapted it for the 21st century. By implementing modern technology and refining centuries-old know-how, Degmeda can achieve very high production numbers and bring top-quality products for each one of our clients. Here’s how we turn regular planks into Shou Sugi Ban.
Everything begins with exposing wood to scorching hot flames which reach up to 1100 degrees Celsius. Fire encloses the pores on wood’s surface and eliminates all organic compounds which could fall prey to bacteria and vermin. This makes timber much more resistant to dynamic weather changes, parasites and a variety of other threats. Yakisugi technology turns regular timber into waterproof timber. For a Yakisugi fence, this is extremely important as it stands outside, unprotected from rain, hail, wind, moisture and heat. Fencing has to be durable in order to withstand the test of time, both physically and from a beauty standpoint.
And in this regard, a charred wood fence is also superior to most other options in the market today, or ever, even. The exposure to fire enhances texture and every single line or circle of treated wood. In addition, the colour gets more profound, and transitions between tones are much smoother. What we get in the end thus, is a not just a regular plank, but a near-perfect piece of charred timber which is immune to common threats and also – marvellous to look at.
Instead of opting for cheap wood and varnishing it just to have nice looks temporarily, opt for something timeless and very durable. Opt for Japanese burnt wood fences to add exclusivity and value to a yard or outside area.
