The first in the Thermory® rebel collection, Drift unleashes the look of reclaimed wood but without the unknowns. Unrivalled in durability and rot-resistance these unique boards give a naturalistic and washed ashore vibe.
With both internal and external cladding available it really is possible to find contemporary coloured cladding that best suits your needs and style.
Cut from Picea Abies Spruce, treated without chemicals, and finished with a multi-layer Water-based acrylic Drift finish, these Eco-friendly boards have outstanding durability with a fantastic price tag to match.
Thermory® only use high-quality spruce for their cladding boards, sourced from well-managed forests in Finland and Russia where good growing conditions and strict drying standards are enforced.
The Drift collection has been subjected to ‘intense’ thermo-treatment’, which heats and steams materials up to a maximum temperature of 215°C, ensuring maximum stability and a dark and rich colouring throughout the timber. This Eco-friendly and chemical-free process also ensures a low moisture content, removes remaining resin, reduces splitting, reinforces the timber and improves durability against decay. The end result is the transformation of responsibly harvested and rapid growing spruce, a softwood, into the perfect cladding material with class 1 durability credentials making it equal to the hardwoods.
Each piece of timber board from the Brushed Spruce Drift collection is treated with fungicide to stop fungal growth between layers of tint and each backboard is oiled. In addition to oiling each board has a tongue and groove profile to ensure a flush finish against any surface.
Each board can be fitted using stainless steel nails or screws, and to avoid moisture accumulation, sufficient airflow is needed behind the boards. For very wet areas it is optional to use 1 mm spacers between the timbers.
Maintenance - External Cladding
Like all timbers, Thermo-treated boards for external use will begin to gently weather once installed. Drift finish, however, is estimated to last between 3 to 5 years without any major alteration in appearance. It is to be expected that surface hairline cracks may appear in the boards, this is a natural occurrence in timbers installed for external use.
Some features of the interior and external cladding boards to note are; its consistent appearance, unique colouring, outstanding grain detailing, dependable stability, rot-resistance, significantly reduced moisture absorbency and, perhaps most noteworthy of all its multi-layered water-based acrylic Drift finish.
