Vacoa Timber Cladding
Vacoa is a sustainable Nordic knotty pine material produced in Europe.
Modified by a thermal heat and steam process, the thermal process is non-toxic which greatly increases the stability of the timber for use in all applications both internally and externally.
This high performing timber couples well with the quality finish of a Danish oil, which offers a range of stain options for the perfect natural and sustainable façade and lining product.
Designed to allow for timber movement to reduce cupping
Full range proprietary end stops and corner trims
All components are designed to maintain concealed fixing
Allows for multi-depth and multi width for unique design
Vacoa Overview Video
Our Trendplank profile is a versatile product which will complement and enrich a wide range of applications. Originally designed for exterior cladding, Trendplank has been used to line walls and ceilings both internally and externally by Australia’s leading Architects and Builders. Trendplank cladding can also be used to create convex curved walls.

Profile & Sizes
End Matching is a tongue and groove profile applied to the ends of the boards so they can be joined off-stud. End matching assists with water proofing, eliminates the need to measure and trim the ends of the boards saving time installing, reducing the waste of timber from 10% to approx. 5%.
The installation method for end-matching is the same whether the cladding is vertical or horizontal.
Sikaflex 11FC or similar needs to be applied to gap, boards are then pushed together with excess sealant to be cut off once dry. Where cladding is installed vertically the tongue should be installed
Vacoa is a thermally modified Nordic Pine. Thermally modified timber means it has been heated to over 210 °C in the absence of oxygen. This process introduces chemical changes to the structures of cell wall components (lignin, cellulose and hemicellulose) in the wood to increase its durability. The timber is heated in an environment with low oxygen to prevent burning at high temperatures. Once thermally modified, the timber absorbs less water, consequently increasing decay resistance while decreasing swelling and shrinking. Thermally modified wood is far more durable than its previous state.
Vacoa is a very durable timber, if maintained properly it will last the lifespan of the building.
Yes, Vacoa Timber Cladding can be used both vertically and horizontally
As a guide the approximate cost of Vacoa Cladding ranges from $110 p/m2 + GST up to 245 p/m2 + GST depending on what options are selected.
No, Vacoa is a Thermally Modified Timber. This process makes it very stable.
Shiplap is a different profile to weatherboard, Shiplap has a 10mm shadow line groove at the join where as weatherboard slopes slightly away from the wall. Vacoa is available in the Trendplank / Shiplap profile.
