NORCLAD PARTNER PRODUCT: Abodo
Abodo produce a range of FSC certified sustainable timber products; the range offers naturally durable Tundra Cladding, produced from Douglas fir heartwood, to thermally modified plantation timbers with Vulcan+ Cladding.
The Vulcan+ Cladding range offers a renewable alternative to some of the more traditional Larch or Cedar cladding that the construction market are used to. FSC certified plantation timber is selected before being engineered to create a stable and durable wood cladding product, a key feature of the product is the patented vertical grain construction. This combined with the Thermal modification process permanently changes both the chemical, and physical properties of the timber.
The increased stability offered from the vertical grain construction allows the use of much wider boards than a standard non-engineered product. This allows the option to secret-fix Vulcan+ cladding, reducing the risk of moisture penetrating the boards and allowing the possibility of failures.
Vulcan+ is supplied pre-finished with Abodo Protector Oil, offered in a range of colours this a plant based exterior oil penetrates into the timber.
