Shou Sugi Ban Look for Pre-Stained Cedar

Reveal the natural textual beauty of wood with the look of ancient Japanese Shou Sugi Ban.

What is Shou Sugi Ban?

Shou Sugi Ban is an ancient pre-finishing technique that originated in Japan in the 18th century to preserve exterior wood products, primarily Japanese cedar from the island of Yakushima, by charring the surface rendering it a deep charcoal black finish.

The blackening of the wood enhances distinct grain patterns and subtle lines within the fibre revealing the natural textural beauty.

The Benefits of Fisher’s Approach to the Ancient Japanese Burnt Wood Technique, Shou Sugi Ban.

In working closely with the Architect and Design community on a wide range of aesthetically unique projects over the last several years Fisher has developed a new approach to Shou Sugi Ban (Burnt Wood).

Fisher recognises the beauty in revealing and enhancing existing wood grain patterns. We also understand the additional costs and challenges with creating, installing and protecting charring wood prohibits its use on many projects.

Fisher has created an enhanced version of Shou Sugi Ban through our propriety mechanical and coating application process. The result is beautifully enhanced grain pattern in each board and wide range of colour combinations to suit virtually any architectural aesthetic.

The finished project provides many similar benefits to traditionally produced Shou Sugi Ban without the high cost and challenges in handling and installation.
