Finishes connecting cladding walls
Silva Timber's Western Red Cedar is renowned for its high quality and consistency. Long term relationships with our suppliers and a deep knowledge of the cedar industry give us the advantage of having a continuous supply of the very best raw material.
Our size and buying power have enabled us to be in the privileged position of sourcing raw material direct from British Columbia’s largest and most respected primary producers of Western Red Cedar.
Silva Select cladding is made exclusively from premium coastal grown Western Red Cedar. Trees grown in the coastal region of British Columbia produce timber that is generally richer in colour and tighter grained than that produced from Western Red Cedar trees grown further inland. With its distinctive aroma and luxurious appearance, Silva’s Western Red Cedar stands apart from the rest, providing unrivalled beauty and maximum dimensional stability – it is known as Silva Select.
To guarantee quality and consistency the raw material is graded three times at source then further selection is done at Silva. It is first graded in the sawmill, then sized and graded once again before it undergoes the kiln drying process. Once kiln dried it is graded a third time to ensure accurate sizing and grading. As the raw material is moulded into cladding profiles at Silva, it is again checked and re-graded to ensure it meets our own in-house standards.
Silva’s grades exceed R-List Grading Rules which sets us apart from our competitors. Don't accept compromise; insist on Silva Select Western Red Cedar.
This product is available exclusively in the UK through Silva. It is sustainably sourced from well-managed forests and supplied with full PEFC chain of custody certification.
