Available in six metre lengths with a singular universal profile and secret fixings, Abodo Vulcan Nexus weatherboards allow for extended vertical or horizontal orientations with no visible joins.
Like other Vulcan timber products, Nexus is created using thermally modified New Zealand plantation timber and Abodo’s patented vertical grain, resulting in superior beauty, durability and weathering characteristics.
With increased durability, Vulcan Nexus boards won’t buckle or warp in high temperatures, making them suitable for coating in dark colours.
Abodo Vulcan Nexus Cladding is a boon for sustainability minded builders, architects and homeowners, who will appreciate the minimisation of waste that results from the protracted length of the boards.
As a renewable alternative to Western Red Cedar timber cladding, Abodo timber is sourced from local FSC® certified plantation forests, adding to the product’s sustainability credentials.
* Colour variation may occur due to variation in the natural substrate. Colour may change/fade as part of the weathering process.

Vulcan timbers are treated with heat and steam rather than chemicals, which means the product is ‘pre-shrunk’ and will be more stable in service.
Grown trees experience resistance (like wind for example) perpendicular to the grain, so it makes sense to produce wood products which are also cut perpendicular to the grain. Abodo Vulcan Nexus Cladding is vertical grain, which means weatherboards have greater stability and less surface cracking.
This product is naturally durable, and contains no wood preservatives. Just as nature intended.
Vulcan Nexus Cladding is a carbon negative building material. Each square metre of 20mm thick Vulcan Nexus Cladding stores 9.74 kg of carbon.

Yes. For most profiles, we offer various corner, flashing, fascia and finishing profiles to match the cladding boards. Using these accessories will ensure optimal performance of the cladding system in service.
Cladding is bit more technical than decking, so always consult with a professional before starting your project. A Licenced Building Practitioner is required for install.
Abodo cladding may be face fixed or secret fixed depending on the profile shape. Stainless steel ring shank nails or self-drilling stainless steel countersunk screws should be used in all cases. Generally we recommend to fix boards onto a drained cavity system to allow good airflow and optimum weather protection.
All profiles requires a minimum 2mm expansion gap to be left between boards, you need to ensure all cut ends must are resealed with penetrating oil or sealer. Boards should be coated all sides and re-coated regularly as required thereafter.
