Stability is also key for slatted screens. To maintain the crisp, clean lines that are essential to the overall look of the screen it is important to choose a material that is less susceptible to warping or twisting.

Finishing & Protection

It is recommended that a finish is applied to all surfaces, including ends, before installation. The type of coating will be determined by the final finish and appearance desired.

Why Pre-finish?

  • Enhances the natural beauty of wood
  • Ensures a consistent finish
  • Applied in factory conditions
  • Long lasting protection against weathering
  • Simple maintenance routine
  • Reduces onsite labour costs

What is weathering?

There is a risk involved when leaving wood exposed to the elements. During the weathering process wood can appear unsightly as the material can blacken due to moisture getting into the fibres and pulling out tannins and extractives. Finish protects the wood from moisture absorption and UV degradation.

What to expect from timber products

When working with timber it should be expected that although ‘on-grade’, occasional boards may have minor imperfections that will require ‘working’ if you wish to eliminate. Examples include raised grain, small splits, minor handling marks, sticker marks etc – all of which can easily be remedied by trimming, gluing or sanding. In most cases imperfections can be removed with very little effort, and the small amount of off cuts generated as a result will be absorbed in the normal cutting and selection allowance.



Silva Timber's 19 x 94mm Slatted Screens are available in two grades, No.2 Clear and No.4 Clear.

Both grades offer an exceptional product, however No.2 Clear has a stricter tolerance on how many characteristics (for example how many and of what size knots) are allowed in the finished product.

Silva's No.2 Clear and No.4 Clear grade boards are kiln dried, exceed the required grading rules and are sourced from a primary sawmill for consistent high quality.

It is difficult to recommend one grade over the other. The more discerning customer may choose No.2 Clear for it's minimal characteristics, however the No.4 Clear grade represents excellent value for money for customers who don't mind the odd knot here and there.

Overall, both grades are predominately clear of any characteristics, providing stunning boards for a wide range of applications.

Western Red Cedar is the ultimate green building material. It is legally, responsibly and sustainably harvested in the publicly managed forests of British Columbia, Canada. Less than 1% of standing timber is harvested each year.

For each tree harvested, three are replanted to ensure the forests will exist in perpetuity. Western Red Cedar has a low impact on the environment throughout its life cycle. It requires significantly less energy to produce than man-made alternatives and is bio-degradable.
