Charred Timber Cladding

Permachar® Charred Timber Cladding is high quality, stylish and comes with a choice of char levels.
We offer an exceptional service and our prices are amongst the lowest in the UK.

Our charred timber cladding is made from “A Grade” larch which has been fire treated.
We use larch, rather than cedar cladding, for its superior qualities and durability.

Permachar® timber has undergone fire treatment to preserve it. The Japanese call it “Yakisugi (焼杉)”. This charring process protects the wood against wind, rain, rot, and insects. It also substantially extends the natural lifespan of the wood.

We are a large trade manufacturer and our minimum order is 50m². Timber mills and retailers please call for re-selling.

Friendly, no obligation advice is always free. Contact us on 01646 682 738.

The designer look of Permachar® cladding is hard to match. The dramatic charred wood adds the wow factor to traditional and modern properties, both inside and out.

Available in a choice of char levels to match your palette; the lighter the char, the more wood grain you can see.

The Benefits of Our Charred Wood Cladding...

Charring the surface of the wood without reaching complete combustion creates a carbon layer. This surface layer is water resistant which makes the wood beneath more durable.

The source timber used is sustainable and FSC® certified (FSC-C109654), this ensures forests are managed properly and ethically. FSC available on request only.

The PermaChar process changes the chemical composition of the wood. This means the nutrition sources that fungus and mould spores need are removed.

The unique PermaChar process creates a surface that is inhospitable to insects and pests which deters them from damaging the cladding.

In order for the charred cladding or fencing to re-ignite, it requires much higher temperatures and longer contact with a flame source.

We only use high quality, durable timbers. This coupled with the charring process, produces a wood which has a very long life span. Many Japanese examples last well over 50 years.

We care about our environmental impact, and in addition to our FSC and PEFC membership we also fund the planting of 1 tree for every 10m2 of timber purchased. This is more than double the amount of trees used for the timber in your order.
