Description

Treated softwood timber cladding sourced in Scandinavia is a popular species for timber cladding and can be used internally and externally.


Features and benefits:

  • Sourced in Scandinavia.
  • Works well with both hand and machine tools.
  • Wide choice of standard profiles.
  • Lightweight and strong.
  • Pale yellowish-brown to reddish-brown in colour.
  • Sustainably sourced timber, PEFC and FSC certified.


Moisture movement:

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:

  • Use eaves and overhangs to deflect rain - or flashing to protect the board tops.
  • Finish cladding at least 200 mm from the ground or a horizontal surface. Where possible use a surface that diffuses rain, such as gravel.
  • Board widths should generally be 4 to 6 times board thickness (typically less than 150 mm).
  • Design detailing must include measures that minimise water penetration.
