Cladding Gallery

We illustrate below a range of projects where SiOO:X treatment has been used. They are located in the UK, Ireland and Sweden and are subject to varying climate conditions from northerly latitudes in Scandinavia and Scotland to the milder south of England and Ireland. 

The illustrations have been provided by customers directly and by our principal distributors and partners in the UK and Ireland, Russwood Timber and Machined Timber Specialists. Both companies have strong experience in factory treating with SiOO:X onto sawn and sanded timber using the standard and pigmented versions of the product. 

A project completed in 2018 is the iconic Auckland Tower which you can view in the Beams and Bridges Gallery

The Auckland Tower and Welcome building is the most complete example of SiOO:X at work on a building composed of a multiplicity of wooden forms - large scale columns and beams, window frames, door structures, cladding and rain screens. The gallery pictures show how the SiOO:X treatment responds to different light, bringing the structure to life in a spectacular manner in sunlight and also how the natural grey colouring compliments the colours of the materials in the townscape. The following images show this lovely project.

Machined Timber Specialists Projects in Ireland

Machined Timber Specialists have supplied SiOO:X treated timber to a wide range of projects across Ireland. Working with some of the most innovative architectural practices with a strong design ethos, MTS have supplied SiOO:X aesthetically attractive protection solutions for buildings and structures in the private, public and charitable sectors. Some of these are shown below:

 SiOO:X treated Barretstown project in County WicKlow, Ireland 

The Irish Taoiseach Enda Kenny officially opened a new Dining Hall at the Barretstown recreational camp for seriously ill children in County Kildare on Friday the 9th December 2016. Funding assistance was provided by the golfer, Rory McIlroy. The vision came from the international SeriousFun Childrens Network founded by the late Paul Newman. 

Called 'Elizabeth's Tree' House, the Dining Hall is specifically designed to meet the needs of campers providing a combination of excitement and tranquility inside its modern tree house design. At the 'heart' of the camp, the Dining Hall is a hugely important space where all of the Barretstown campers, staff and volunteers meet three times a day for meals, dancing, fun and games. The camp had outgrown the old dining hall which was limiting the numbers that could be taken in. The new dining hall is 50% larger and has improved facilities giving far more space to campers.

Speaking at the event, Mr Kenny said: "The service Barretstown offers children with serious illness and their families is really important to help these children on the road to recovery".See Barretstown

Sioo are proud to be associated with the project through the provision of its environmentally friendly SiOO:X Wood Protection system. The project is clad with Siberian Larch supplied and factory finished in SiOO:X by our Irish distributor MTS - The Wood Component Company based in Kilcoole. 

The versatility of SiOO:X is illustrated by the ability to have paint finishes applied shown to dramatic effect in the images of the project below. A case study of this lovely and sensitive development at Barretstown will be produced later.

Clad in DuraWood, MTS's own brand thermowood, these pictures were taken during the final stage of construction. Five weeks after factory treatment with SiOO:X weathering was well advanced. 


Private House at Burrow Beach, Dublin. Photographs taken at dusk, courtesy of Marie-Louise Halpenny. 


Designed by Plus Architecture, a Dublin-based architectural practice, the project is a re-furbishment and extension of a derelict late-Victorian villa to provide a modern family house with aspect over the dunes of Burrow Beach. The protected structure has been remodelled and extended to take advantage of the magnificent views out over Dublin Bay and Ireland's Eye. The form of the new-build element is inspired by the shifting landscape of sand dunes on the beach. The Siberian larch cladding, black metal detailing, bronze anodised aluminium windows and large format glazing contrast with the lime render and slate roof of the existing house.
