Featuring our thermally modified Vulcan timber battens to soften the harshness of steel and concrete, the clients were also looking for a low maintenance timber solution.
For the coating, they chose our Sioo:x reactive wood protection. This new-age product is unique in that it reacts with the fibres of the timber under the surface to create a protective barrier.
Simply put, the product’s silicon crystals penetrate and strengthen wood, while forming a physical barrier. More on the low maintenance Sioo:x reactive coating here.
Five years on. The natural tendency of thermally modified wood to silver off when exposed to UV - works synergistically with Sioo:x.
Vulcan timber’s incredible stability means these battens are still straight and true.
