In a project where preserving the natural landscape and connecting naturally with surrounding neighbourhoods are two key drivers, Abodo’s natural timbers fit perfectly.

Vulcan timber cladding is locally-grown and rapidly renewable, making Abodo’s Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certified timbers the perfect choice for the eco-development.

Vulcan Cladding - Vertical Grain in Protector - Ebony creates a striking contrast with the lighter timber, finished in a silicate coating.

Silicate is a natural wood coating based on nature’s technology, which silvers off beautifully over time into a low maintenance patina.

Vulcan Cladding is made from thermally modified timber, a process which uses heat and steam rather than chemicals, and results in a highly stable, durable timber which holds darker colours for longer.
