In an article published on June 20, 2017, Building-Products.com highlighted the recent partnership between reSAWN TIMBER co. and Kebony®. The partnership comes at an advantageous time when exterior wood siding is continuing to gain popularity for its sustainability, beauty, and performance standards. reSAWN’s five current Kebony® designs take full advantage of the chemically modified wood’s durability, and incorporate the aesthetic value provided by the company’s CHARRED and weathered finishing techniques…
“reSAWN has a fabulous reputation in the textured wood finishes industry,” Kebony’s U.S. Sales Manager Andy Hehl said in an interview for the article. “The company’s knowledge of interior design and architecture will be invaluable to us as we continue to broaden our reach across the North American market.”
The new KEBONY products combine the breathtaking contemporary designs from reSAWN TIMBER co. with high-performance Kebony® exterior siding and decking. Originating out of Norway, Kebony “…aims to be the leading wood brand and technology organization” through proven wood modification techniques.
reSAWN’s offering includes two CHARRED Kebony shou sugi ban designs–SUPERKÜL and NOBU–and three designs that are non-CHARRED Kebony and are intended to beautifully weather in place–FAEN, MARKA, and RUSS. All five products are available for sampling and specification.
All Kebony wood products are permanently modified with a bio-based liquid that, after it is cured, provides a combination of outstanding durability and dimensional stability. The patented process results in wood cell walls that are significantly thicker and provide a hardness that rivals the best tropical hardwoods. ReSawn’s charred and textured Kebony wood decking and cladding products provide the same strength and stability, and therefore, also carry Kebony’s standard 30-year warranty.
