Abodo Vulcan Cladding

Vulcan is a thermally modified timber weatherboard with a vertical grain orientation and a beautiful rich brown tone. Unlike many cladding materials, it does not require chemical preservatives and is resistant to most wood boring insects. Each square foot of Vulcan cladding stores 2lbs of carbon making it a net-carbon negative product. It also carries Forest Stewardship Council certification and is Red List Free.

Master Builders Selah Homes used Abodo’s dark timber products throughout their luxurious show home in Matakana, with the external cladding and batten screening clad in Vulcan in Protector – Ebony and the internal ceiling linings and feature wall cladding in Protector – Black. The result is a head-turning luxury home with a refined aesthetic and an integrated, robust palette.

Abodo’s ethos is to provide products that are safe, healthy, and truly sustainable. They are committed to creating long-lasting timber solutions that will last a lifetime and beyond. Abodo timbers and cladding are ethically sourced and their production process demonstrates extended producer responsibility. For every tree milled, they plant one to ensure a renewable resource.

Abodo Tundra Cladding

The beauty of timber cladding is its ability to create a traditional villa or coastal aesthetic. With horizontal shiplap cladding providing a more traditional villa look, vertical cladding can also complement a modern build with its strong shadow lines and clean architectural lines.

Tundra cladding is crafted from New Zealand plantation Douglas Fir that has been exposed to the harsh winters of our central plateau. It’s a naturally durable timber with rustic features and defects that blend beautifully in natural environments. Free from chemical preservatives, it’s Codemark certified and carries a 15 year Built to Last Warranty.

Abodo’s Vulcan cladding is New Zealand’s first verified carbon negative feature timber and can be finished with a range of coatings including Protector, Iron Vitriol and Sioo:x for a silvered patina. To maintain the life of your cladding we recommend using Abodo’s Protector Water borne stain and protective oil as well as cleaning with Rejuvenator wood cleaner and nourishing with Abodo Char Oil on charred timbers to keep them protected from insects and weather.

Abodo Vulcan Decking

Vulcan Decking is a sustainable and durable timber cladding system ethically crafted from Radiata pine. It has been thermally modified using world-class technology, and treated with an organic preservative system including a water repellent for superior durability. The thermal modification process gives Vulcan a reduced resin content, enhanced stability and a beautiful, homogeneous brown colour that silvers as it weathers. Vulcan is also a carbon negative building material, with each square metre of 20mm thick cladding storing 9.74 kg of carbon.

Abodo’s premium weatherboard product, created from FSC certified New Zealand plantation timber and thermally modified for superior beauty and strength, provides a renewable alternative to Western Red Cedar timber cladding. With a range of profile options and finishes, including vertical shiplap, rustic and bevel back, Vulcan is ideal for bespoke architectural aesthetics. It is suitable for coating in dark colours and offers a 15 year Built to Last warranty.

Abodo Vulcan Anti-Slip Decking

Vulcan Decking is a durable, long-lasting and eco-friendly option for exterior spaces. The decking is created from thermally modified, rapidly renewable New Zealand plantation timber, which has been pressure treated with a low VOC organic preservative including a water repellent for superior durability.

The thermal modification process reduces resin content resulting in enhanced stability and a beautiful homogeneous brown colour that silvers off over time. It is also treated with an insecticide for termite zones and fungicide for resistance to rot and fungus.

Designed to meet the needs of architects and builders, it is available in a wide range of profiles and is compatible with all structural systems. It is FSC certified and carries a 15 year Built to Last warranty. It is also WUI approved and is free from Red List chemicals as required under the Living Building Challenge. The product line is sourced from Radiata Pine, which grows fast and produces beautiful renewable timbers. Abodo has a strong ethos around environmental and social sustainability with an emphasis on extended producer responsibility.
