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.
When it comes to roofing materials, wood cladding that is sustainably harvested is arguably one of the few environmentally-sound roofing options. It’s well-positioned as an eco-friendly alternative to Zinc roofs which have been popularized in recent years.
This stunning private residence Located in Bridgehampton, New York, is wrapped in reSAWN’s shou sugi ban FSC-Certified Accoya® wood. “6 Square House” consists of six 24’x24’ modules, each with a gabled geometry. The six modules were composed to create continuous momentum between the outer roof ridges, while the eaves of the roof flow up and down along curves to break away from tradition.
reSAWN TIMBER co. is dedicated to providing high-performance, long-lasting wood roof cladding material, and has developed its product line based on observations of experienced industry leaders and a first-hand understanding of architectural market needs. If you’d like to learn more about using our timber cladding as a roofing material with the EJObar applied roof cladding system get in touch with us. We’re happy to assist.
Western Hemlock – A Well Designed, Economical Option for Modern Interior Wall & Ceiling Cladding
Western Hemlock is typically found and sustainably harvested on the Pacific North West coast of North America and is one of the most valuable sources of lumber in the northern hemisphere – it’s the largest of the hemlock species. Specimens range from 90 to 150 feet tall and 3 to 4.5 feet wide, though some specimens have been known to grow to heights of 250 feet and diameters approaching 9 feet.
reSAWN TIMBER co. chose Western Hemlock for interior applications due to its impeccably straight uniform grain structure, fine texture, and its creamy white to light gold color, which lends itself to a modern clean aesthetic. It’s a great option for an affordable, aesthetically pleasing, high grade, clear vertical grain material.
Many of our interior Western Hemlock clear vertical grain (CVG) designs are finished in beautiful grey tones. The palette authentically aligns with the look of exterior wood cladding that has weathered to a silver grey naturally over time, such as reSAWN’s pre-weathered clear vertical grain Western Red Cedar and Alaskan Yellow Cedar designs.
