Hewn’s Class A Ignition-Resistant Cedar Siding maintains the visual look and feel of our traditional exterior cedar siding, while implementing an industry-leading fire treatment process that modifies the wood to its core. These products resist the spread of fire, helping your project meet any major fire codes present in your area, and protecting your property in ways that were previously out of reach on a commercial scale. 

In addition to their ignition resistant properties, our treatment process has the added benefit of slowing the aging process of the wood itself, protecting against ultraviolet degradation and extending the lifetime of the material. 

Our ignition resistant products are subjected to industry-standard accelerated weathering tests (ASTM D-2898), Flame Spread (ASTM D-84), and are verified by International Code Counsel ESR-1159 and ESL-1021.

Custom Options

Hewn’s Class A Ignition-Resistant Cedar Siding can be customized to fit the individual needs and specifications of your particular project. Our finely skilled craftsmen can modify nearly any part of our in-house process to create a material designed according to your specifications, and our color technicians can match any shade or tone provided to us as part of our custom sampling process. Please contact a Hewn sales representative for more information.
