Vulcan Cladding

Abodo's premium weatherboard product made using FSC® certified New Zealand plantation timber, thermally modified for superior beauty and durability.

A renewable alternative to Western Red Cedar, Vulcan is New Zealand’s first carbon negative feature timber.

The thermal modification process used in its production results in a stable timber with low moisture content - meaning it won’t warp, cup or bleed.

This also makes Vulcan Cladding suitable for coating in dark colours, even in warm climates. Create clean lines using various profiles, including vertical shiplap and bevel back.

With a variety of coatings, finishes and profile options, Vulcan is perfect for bespoke architectural aesthetics and applications.

As the thermal modification process is preservative and chemical free, it is also safe and effective for interior applications and joinery.

Vulcan is manufactured with a patented process resulting in an engineered vertical grain orientation that reduces cracking and enables stable weathering long term.

Environmental Product Declaration and Declare Red List Free certified, each square metre of 20mm thick Vulcan Cladding stores 9.74 kg of carbon.

Thermally modified timber


Vulcan timbers are treated with heat and steam rather than chemicals, which means the product is ‘pre-shrunk’ and will be more stable in service.

Natural Stability
Grown trees experience resistance (like wind for example) perpendicular to the grain, so it makes sense to produce wood products which are also cut perpendicular to the grain. Abodo Vulcan Cladding is vertical grain, which means weatherboards have greater stability and less surface cracking.

Natural Durability
This product is naturally durable, and contains no wood preservatives. Just as nature intended.

Climate credentials

Vulcan Cladding is a carbon negative building material. Each square metre of 20mm thick Vulcan Cladding stores 9.74 kg of carbon.

Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) Certified

FAQs

Are accessories available for the timber cladding?

Yes. For most profiles, we offer various corner, flashing, fascia and finishing profiles to match the cladding boards. Using these accessories will ensure optimal performance of the cladding system in service.

How do I install and fix Abodo timber cladding?

Cladding is bit more technical than decking, so always consult with a professional before starting your project. A Licenced Building Practitioner is required for install.

Abodo cladding may be face fixed or secret fixed depending on the profile shape. Stainless steel ring shank nails or self-drilling stainless steel countersunk screws should be used in all cases. Generally we recommend to fix boards onto a drained cavity system to allow good airflow and optimum weather protection.

All profiles requires a minimum 2mm expansion gap to be left between boards, you need to ensure all cut ends must are resealed with penetrating oil or sealer. Boards should be coated all sides and re-coated regularly as required thereafter.

Refer to the Resources page for more details including installation manual and drawings.

How do I maintain Abodo timber cladding?

Please see our Maintenance Guidelines for more information.
