reSAWN TIMBER co.’s Abodo® Vulcan Cladding Compliant for Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) Zones
reSAWN TIMBER co.’s Abodo® Vulcan Cladding was recently tested on an exterior wall assembly in accordance with the California Standards Code, Chapter 12-7A, SFM 12-7A-1 (Siding Materials for Exterior Wall Siding and Sheathing). The test simulated wildfire conditions using full size 4′ x 8′ panels that were exposed to a flame of 150 Kw for ten minutes. After, the panels were then observed for 60 minutes to check for further flaming. In order to gather accurate results, the process was repeated three times.
reSAWN TIMBER co.’s Abodo Vulcan cladding passed the test for both horizontal and vertical orientations for upcoming inclusion in the WUI Products Listing. A copy of the test results can be found here. The result? Abodo Vulcan cladding is now a compliant wildland urban interface building material.

More European White Oak To Love
reSAWN TIMBER co. is excited to announce that we’ve expanded our European white oak product offering. This luxurious sought-after species is known for its wider widths, a variety of deep brown tones tinged with light sapwood, and a distinctive grain pattern. reSAWN’s new finishes complement the character and tones of European oak by enhancing the natural appearance of the wood.
reSAWN’s European oak is offered in both select grade and character grade. Character grade material is ‘original cut’ which is the most efficient and effective approach of cutting since it utilizes the whole log. Logs are sliced directly through from the front to the back. The magnificence of original cut is that all of the various, one-of-a-kind cuts of hardwood are displayed – rift sawn, quarter sawn and plain sawn – as well as sapwood & heartwood where the ring patterns are tightest.
Select products can be specified in both Herringbone and Chevron styles. All designs are available as FSC® certified upon request.
