Thermally modified wood made from British-grown timber
Brimstone is a beautiful range of thermally modified British wood for cladding, decking and joinery.
We use intense heat to reconfigure locally grown wood. No chemicals. Nothing nasty. Just a more durable, stable and consistent material.
By using British species, we’re increasing the demand for native broadleaf woodlands. This supports local species and rural jobs, while reducing the environmental impact of global transportation.
Why import wood from thousands of miles away when it grows just down the road? Brimstone is all grown in England and Wales – usually within 100 miles of our sawmill.
The clever Scandinavians did all the hard work developing this process. We did a whole lot of testing just to be sure. It works.
Woodlands rely on income from selling wood to pay for conservation work. Buying Brimstone means you’re supporting tree planting and helping to increase biodiversity.
It looks amazing. In fact, one complaint we get is that it looks too good to leave outside.
That’s it. No nasty chemicals, just intense heat. Heating wood above 160°C is an age-old way of preserving it.
It will make you smile*
*This is not scientifically proven but it keeps happening.
Created with nothing but heat, Brimstone is a durable and stable modified wood, made exclusively from locally grown hardwoods. Watch the colour change as the temperature rises.
