Vulcan Cladding - Vertical Grain

Abodo Wood

Abodo Vulcan Cladding - Vertical Grain is our premium cladding timber. Created from Abodo’s thermally modified New Zealand plantation timber for superior beauty, durability and weathering characteristics.

Vulcan Cladding features a vertical grain for superior stability and weathering characteristics. The increased stability of the vertical grain orientation means wider boards of 180mm are possible.

Vulcan Cladding is a very stable, low movement product which means it is ideally suited for coating in darker colours, and is a renewable alternative to Western Red Cedar timber cladding.

Various modern profiles are available, including vertical ship lap, random width boards and custom profiles. We also offer a range of surface finishes -fine band sawn, riven and ribbed. For those looking to reduce waste, boards can also be finger jointed to specific size and length, anything up to 12m.
