What is Vulcan Cladding?

What is Vulcan Cladding?

Abodo Vulcan is a premium weatherboard timber. Created from Abodo’s thermally modified New Zealand plantation timber for superior beauty, durability and weathering characteristics. Vulcan Cladding is suitable for coating in darker colours, and is a sustainable alternative to Cedar Cladding

Abodo Vulcan is split into 2 products; Flat Sawn and VG (Vertical Grain), the VG product is laminated which offers even more stability to Flat Sawn so we can produce cladding profiles 180mm+ wide and 60mm thick. We can also produce non-profiled sections in VG up to 140x240mm which can be used for (non-structural) posts.

Read some FAQ’s

Economic, attractive and very durable. Superb environmental credentials and insulation properties. Available in a wide variety of densities, colours, strengths & sizes. Wood is a waste efficient and sustainable building material. To name but a few reasons

Yes, all timber will weather after long periods of exposure to the suns UV Rays. Some species of timber will weather quicker than others. We can offer a range of protective coatings wich which will give the most protection against the sun. Ask us for more information and costs

Normally the lead times if you aren’t receiving factory coated cladding is around 10-14 days from payment confirmation. If your cladding is being sent to have treatment factory applied via an external coater this could take longer (such as Sioo:x which has to be applied by a specialist)

The 2 popular profiles we are constantly machining are the WB12 (vertically fitted) and WB10 (both vertical and horizontally fitted) because they offer a secret fixing. The WB12 can also be machined with a centre and offset groove which gives a mixed width illusion

Of course, we think its the best way to make sure you pick the perfect product for your project by seeing the species and profiles up close. See our contact page for our address

Testimonials

We are delighted with how the cladding turned out and would not hesitate in recommending yourselves and Abodo to others.

Thank you – The help you gave us was truly amazing – you said yes to what seemed an impossible request in a heartbeat and what a difference it made – The house looked beautiful and we’re all so proud of what everyone achieved – the family were utterly overwhelmed by the sheer force of goodwill that everyone showed them

Gordon Whistance, In House Designer | BBC DIY SOS
It was an easy choice to move to using Glenalmond Timber’s floor joist system. It gives an improved specification for many aspects of the build, including acoustics, ease of installation, lack of bounce in the floor as well of course as cost effectiveness. A great all-round product, it’s a lot more than just a joist and the level of service from Fraser has been a joy. Whenever you deal with people such as that, the business process becomes a pleasure
Steven Streets, Technical Manager | Muir Group
The larch cladding we got from you is outstanding. We absolutely love the smooth riven effect. Thanks again for supplying the cladding
Adam Turner, Happy Customer
Thanks for the impromptu tour on Friday. I was very impressed with your set-up there, great to see yours and Martin’s enthusiasm for the business and getting quality products out into the market so we can build with quality materials
Angus MacDonald, Morgan Sindall
I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and your team for my order. We received it this morning and I am very impressed with the quality of the cladding and also how well it was all packaged. I would certainly recommend you to anyone who may be looking for cladding in the future.
