Ash Hardwood is an essential material in woodcraft, due to its amazing durability. Ash is a hardwood with a high number of growth rings, and features an aesthetic look with its wavy texture. These qualities make Ash Cladding a multi-purpose, aesthetic and durable material. With its beautiful brown colour and its strength. It is good for outdoor areas where heavy traffic is expected. If you seek an elegant look to highlight your spaces, durable and reliable Ash Cladding is the right choice.
Woodworkers generally like the timber for its great finishing qualities. It also has good machining qualities, and is quite easy to use with screws and glue. The Ash timber used in ThermoWood production is sourced from North America.
The most superstitious of trees:
No other tree seems so tied up with myth and folklore. In ancient times it was believed that man was born from the branches and flesh of the ash tree. Since then it has been the subject of numerous superstitions including the belief that if the winged seeds of an ash do not appear the monarch will die that year. On the Isle of Man ash was believed to protect water purity and it was alleged that women who placed a leaf in their left shoe would immediately meet their future husband.

What is ThermoWood?
ThermoWood is a thermal modification procedure that preserves wood in its most natural and flawless state for a life-long journey. The “ThermoWood method” involves a carefully computer controlled heat and steam process up to 210 degrees C.
Besides the preservation, the ThermoWood process also causes certain chemical changes in wood. Not only does the colour darken but the stability, decay resistance and insulation properties are largely increased after the process is complete.
The ThermoWood method, brand and logo can only by the used by members of the International ThermoWood Association.
Thermowood treated Ash is a chocolate brown in colour and has fairly consistent tones throughout the board. With all stable timbers you can use different coloured timbers to create patterns and highlight specific areas like deck perimeters, steps, ramps and changes in levels. You do not need to restrict yourself to one type of timber for the entire project whether it’s decking, cladding, flooring or decorative panelling.
Samples can vary in colour so we recommend that you visit a display or show area where you can really get an understanding of what the boards will look and feel like. QTD have their very own unique show areas, why not come and visit us!
Fixing and Finishing Methods
This is only available with the Zeta Clip cladding profile. The hidden clip system allows you to display your cladding boards with no visual sight of screws in the boards.
Simply pre-drill using stainless screws through the face of the board into the sub-frame.
This will be created by the cladding profile you choose to go with.
We recommend 400mm centre to centre joist spacing for a standard area, projects may vary.
End Grain Sealer:
When the timber starts to dry out it loses the moisture quicker through the ends of the timber hence the characteristics of grain checking and opening up. Clear wax sealer seals the timber ends and slows down the moisture loss to a more controlled process, thus preventing this cracking. This is especially useful because cutting off the damaged ends not only becomes an expensive waste of timber, but may mean the difference between having the right length of timber for your project or it being several centimetres too short.
We recommend using our Messmers End Grain Wax Sealer to prevent the boards from end checking.
Oiling the boards will help you to retain the dark rich colours within the boards. This product contains UV filters to delay the silvering process that strong sunlight causes in all timbers. We can now provide you with two options when it comes to oiling your boards, you can purchase our Messmers UV Plus Oil or you can order your boards pre-oiled saving you the initial labour cost of applying it yourself. If after a year you wish to maintain your investment we can supply the Clean & Oil starter Pack for you to use when convenient.
It costs £5.20/square metre to have the boards Pre-oiled, please let us know if you would like this option.
