Delivering all the charm of yesteryear, updated for ease of use in modern applications, Abodo Vulcan Shingles are a durable, high-end architectural finish for roofs, walls and gable ends.
The durability of the product is furthered by a low-VOC, water-based OPX preservative treatment that guards against mould and insects.
It is also lightweight, making it easy to install and maintain. The beautiful homogenous brown colour will silver off with exposure to weather if left uncoated.
Vulcan Shingles are detailed with a ventilation cavity system for wall and roof applications to extend the durability of the timber by enabling air flow beneath the shingles to reduce moisture build up. This sets them apart from most standard pine and cedar shingles. Along with the patented vertical grain construction and a fine band sawn face, Vulcan Shingles also deliver enhanced stability and reduced cupping, even when exposed to harsh weather.
It is also lightweight, making it easy to install and maintain. Add to this the verified carbon negative status of Vulcan timber, which is created from FSC® certified New Zealand Radiata Pine, and these timber shingles are sure to tick many boxes for architects, designers and homeowners.

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. Vulcan Shingles are manufactured with a vertical grain orientation, which means the shingles have great stability, even in harsh conditions.
This product is naturally durable, Durability Class 1 (EN350-1).
