UK/ Homegrown Western Red Cedar Timber Cladding

Description

The UK/ Homegrown counterpart is faster grown, therefore is only a moderately Durable softwood.

Homegrown Cedar is significantly cheaper over the Western Canadian alternative and from a carbon foot print perspective, is worth considering as the product does not have to travel half way round the world to our country.

The timber will weather to a silver grey over time if not coated, ideal for that rustic finish with the characteristic knots present in the species.

Features and benefits:

  • FSC Certified, sustainably sourced timber.
  • Grown within the United Kingdom.
  • All timber is sourced and machined to CE Quality Grading Requirements.
  • Faster grown than imported species, large and frequent knots along the length.

This species is only moderately durable and should be high pressure treated with NORclad Brunnea™ or NORclad Lite™ to give the species a 30 year warranty against rot and fungal decay out of ground contact (UC3) and expected 50 year service life.

Typical end uses:

Timber cladding, Brise Soleil.

Standards:

Quality of timber (Exposed Surfaces): To EN 14915 – NORclad Timber Cladding is produced in accordance with factory production control for selection, grading, machining and preservative treatment of solid wood cladding.
