Versatile cladding material
Siberian Larch battens are well suited for trim boards but can also be used as cladding to create a more defined look compared to cladding boards with a larger profile.
About Silva’s Siberian Larch Cladding
Silva’s Siberian Larch cladding is produced from a consistent and reliable raw material that is kiln dried at source to a moisture content of 16 – 18% (+/-2%). Among its many benefits the kiln drying process enables the boards to dry uniformly to achieve optimal stability, have a finish applied immediately and to be installed without the need for acclimatisation on site.

Large content of heartwood
Siberian Larch trees are composed of 75-90% heartwood in their natural existence, which is denser, less permeable and more durable than sapwood. Heartwood provides maximum durability, consistent quality and a more uniform colour.
Siberian Larch is a sustainable, old-growth timber that has been used in construction for centuries. Today it is used extensively throughout Europe, primarily for external applications such as cladding and decking, and for other uses including flooring, bridges and even Olympic velodrome tracks.
