SVERTE by reSAWN TIMBER co. features Kebony shou sugi ban wood that’s specifically designed to create a beautifully CHARRED aesthetic. SVERTE can be used for exterior siding or interior wall cladding.

Kebony is a 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.

SVERTE combines Kebony wood with reSAWN’s award winning charred aesthetic to create a distinct and striking design.
