Here in New Zealand timber shingles were most recently popular in 1950s architecture, but they are enjoying a renaissance today in high-end architecture, resorts, tiny cabins, and homes.
Vulcan Shingles are an advanced modern-day timber shingle.
To meet demand for a technologically advanced timber shingle less prone to warping and cupping, Abodo has crafted a Vulcan Shingle from thermally modified laminated blocks recovered from production off-cuts of Vulcan weatherboards.
Design and build-friendly Vulcan Shingles system extends durability in service.
Reducing condensation and moisture ingress, Abodo has also developed a Vulcan timber shingle ventilation cavity installation system that allows the roof and/or wall to breathe, with the goal to extend the durability of the timber.
Open to advance orders with a lead time of 6 weeks.
As an alternative to cedar, Abodo is offering advance technical information and Vulcan Shingle orders with a lead time of 6 weeks, with the addition of an installation system behind it.
Vulcan Shingles are created from thermally modified New Zealand plantation timber and engineered with a patented vertical grain construction for superior weathering characteristics.
A fine sawn face allows a depth of grain and optimal weathering performance.
The thermal modification process combined with vertical grain structure and OPX water-based preservation system means Vulcan Shingles have enhanced stability and reduced resin content.
The beautiful homogenous brown colour of Vulcan Shingles will silver off with exposure to weather if left uncoated.
Vulcan Shingles provide a unique high end architectural finish for roof, wall, and gable end applications.
Two profiles available: 90mm x 450mm or 120mm x 450mm – can be supplied as single or mixed width. Thickness: 12mm / 6mm tapered with bandsawn face.
Can be left uncoated or suitable for coating if desired.
