Ignite by Thermory mimics the traditional look of shou sugi ban with the added benefits of thermal modification. Hundreds of years ago, Japanese woodworkers prolonged the life of the wood by charring the surface using fire, resulting in shou sugi ban. Ignite offers the look of charred wood with additional durability, stability, and reliability. Did we mention that our process is completely flame-free
Ignite is created with a deceptively flame-free process. Each board is embossed, brushed, and tinted to create the signature dragon scale texture that looks nearly identical to charred wood. And unlike most modern shou sugi ban, our process is done by wood experts, not some guy with a propane torch. That also means that there is no messy residue that typically results from charring wood – just realistic texture and a bold look bound to instill envy.
Ignite provides a bold look that’ll set your project on fire. But it also offers the stability and durability Thermory is known for. In fact, Ignite comes with a 25+ year rot resistance rating!
That’s because, like all Thermory products, Ignite undergoes our expert thermal modification process. Thermory naturally enhances wood, using only heat and steam, for results that are unequaled in rot resistance and dimensional stability.
All products use FG Screws for installation.

A longer-lasting appeal
Over time, the charred surface of yakisugi cladding becomes tarnished and carbonized particles fall away. In addition, this type of cladding can’t be maintained – it is meant to change over time. Ignite’s pattern is permanent, and the surface color also lasts longer thanks to Thermory’s intense thermal modification process.
Easy maintenance to retain the authentic charred look for years
We recommend carrying out maintenance painting if the paint layer becomes worn or the appearance of the cladding becomes uneven over time, with the following minimum intervals:
For Ignite 5, every 5 years with water-based semi-translucent black paint.
For Ignite 7, every 7 years with water-based opaque (full coating) RAL9005 paint
