About Shou Sugi Ban

Yakisugi () is a traditional Japanese method of wood preservationYaki means to heat with fire, and sugi is cypress. It is also referred to in the West as burnt timber cladding and available under a number of brands including Shou Sugi Ban (焼杉板) which uses the same kanji characters but a different pronunciation. The ban character means "plank".

By slightly charring the surface of the wood without combusting the whole piece, the wood becomes water-proof through the carbonisation and is thus more durable.[3] It also protects against insects, as well as making it fire retardant.
