Thermowood has a high resistance to moisture and decay which makes it a good option for exterior cladding. Thermowood is a straight grained softwood which offers a more consistent finish.
Particularly suited to external cladding applications. Also suitable for internal cladding applications. Example applications include, but are in no way limited to:
Softwood redwood timber cladding.
Features and benefits:
Wood’s moisture content will change relative to its surroundings. Different species have different degrees of movement and this must be accounted for in cladding design.
Good design and installation practice will help minimize the effects of moisture:
H21/116 Horizontal timber weatherboarding
H21/115 Vertical timber weatherboarding
H21/111 Horizontal timber weatherboarding
H21/110 Vertical timber weatherboarding
H21/15 Horizontal timber weatherboarding
H21/10 Vertical timber weatherboarding
To BS EN 350:2:1994.
Reaction to fire classification
Timber cladding is suitable for buildings of 18 m or lower. No combustible materials are permitted for cladding on residential buildings over 18 m high.
6% moisture content.
Warm dark brown.
60 mm stainless steel annular ring shank nails. Flat head grade 304.
Use marine grade 316 for exposed areas such as tall
buildings or coastal locations. Screw holding strength is about
20% less due to the altered state of the cell wall during the
Class 2 (to BS EN 350:2:1994).
60 years (occasionally wet); 30 years (frequently wet).
