Ayous wood: Sustainable facade cladding

Thermo Ayous is a sustainable bestseller. Untreated Ayous is mainly found in saunas, where its naturally white wood stays cool at high temperatures. After thermal treatment, Ayous transforms into a golden-brown color with a lifespan of 20-25 years.

Benefits of Ayous

Sustainable wood:

  • Sustainability class 1 to 2 (after thermal modification), resulting in a lifespan of 20-25 years without treatment.
  • Natural resistance to molds and insects minimizes maintenance costs.

Sleek appearance:

  • Quiet grain with minimal knots or defects for a sleek and elegant appearance.
  • As it ages, Ayous wood develops a beautiful, uniform gray color.

Versatile applications:

  • Ideal for facade cladding, fences, garden rooms, and interior decoration, where it creates a natural and warm atmosphere.


  • Can be applied untreated to facades. Ages to a beautiful, uniform gray color.
  • Various treatments available to maintain the brown color. Such as an Exterior oil, which preserves the appearance of the wood. The grain remains visible and it is easy to apply. Treatment can also be done with a stain.
  • Impregnation: An alternative method to prevent wood from weathering is by pressure impregnation. This treatment is similar to the green impregnation used in garden wood. However, with Ayous, this does not result in a green color but rather a slightly darker brown shade due to the natural dark color of the wood.

  • Caution is advised when shooting nails to prevent them from going too deep.
