Takamatsu wood is cut at right angles to the growth rings (quarters/false quarters). This cutting method gives Takamatsu a special but fine, linear structure and a classic, calm feel. The planks are charred in our own oven after which the wood is brushed and treated again. Takamatsu is resistant to all weather conditions and does not stain.
After charring and brushing, Takamatsu is treated with our Bito Black. Bito Black provides good protection against water, dirt, mould and other deposits. We recommend repeating this treatment every 3 to 5 years.
Takamatsu is made of Douglas fir from sustainably managed Dutch forests. The durability of Douglas wood is Class 3 and is therefore very suitable for use as wall cladding. Characteristic of Douglas wood is the scent and the presence of knots. These knots may be visible in the line pattern. Another characteristic of Douglas wood is that it continues to expand and shrink under the influence of moisture and temperature fluctuations.
The fire resistance classes of Takamatsu are D, S0, D1 as standard (European standard - EN13501). After impregnation and with a sealed profile: Classes B, S1, D0.
Takamatsu is a natural product. This means that individual planks may differ from one another.
