RUSS by reSAWN TIMBER co. features Kebony® wood specifically designed to create a beautifully weathered exterior aesthetic. RUSS can be used for exterior siding and decking.
Kebony® exterior siding and decking is beautiful wood recommended by leading architects. It is sustainable, durable and requires no maintenance beyond normal cleaning. Kebony’s performance has been proven in a variety of applications including decking and cladding.
Developed in Norway, the Kebony® technology is an environmentally friendly, patented process, which enhances the properties of sustainable softwood with a bio-based liquid. The process permanently modifies the wood cell walls giving Kebony® premium hardwood characteristics and a rich brown color. After exposure to sun and rain the wood develops a natural silver-gray patina..
The Kebony® technology permanently transforms sustainable wood species such as pine into Kebony® wood with features that are comparable, and in some cases superior, to those of precious tropical hardwoods. This unique environmentally friendly process is also a superior alternative to traditional wood treatment based on impregnation with biocides (wood preservatives). The company’s patent-protected production processes yield products that deliver major improvements in durability and dimensional stability, at the same time as being highly attractive. The Kebony® products are suitable for a multitude of applications and designs – encompassing both indoor and outdoor applications.
RUSS gives the Kebony® exterior siding and decking a recognizable amount of texture and depth that combines with the wood’s natural weathering capabilities to create a beautiful design that will seamlessly transition from brand new to weathered.
