Timber Cladding: NORclad Thermowood with Sansin Paint System

NORclad supplied nearly 7,000/LM of pre-coated Thermowood across this contemporary project in Berkhamsted.

Thermowood is a great timber when it comes to applying a coating, after going through the heat treating process, the Finnish grown European Redwood/Whitewood (Scandinavian Pine/Spruce) is more stable. It is suitable in conditions of changing humidity, and its thermal insulation properties are improved, ideal for use in exposed areas such as External Timber Cladding.

The heat treatment process enables the use of Scandinavian Redwood in areas requiring a service life of up to 30 years without the need for any further preservative or coating to be applied. The process removes resin from timber, as a result there is no resin leakage or “bleed” through the surface coatings. The effect of this together with the improved stability can lead to a lower maintenance requirement, combined with the application of the Sansin SDF system, which will further protect the outside of wood.

The SDF product also protects the inside by allowing the timber to ‘breath’ – helping to prevent moisture from getting trapped in the wood and causing rot.

Half of this volume on this project was supplied in a tongue and groove profile, with the balance supplied a smaller bead to create depth as seen on the images.

Supplying a product that is pre-coated allowed the timber to be installed as soon as it arrived on site, without the need for prep areas, or drying facilities.

NORclad is delighted to have been a part of this project, proud to feature in many beautiful builds, NORclad is dedicated to supplying quality timber to create striking sustainable façades.

Attractive and durable, NORclad can preserve and treat timber cladding to ensure longevity.
