Key Properties

  • Durability: When properly finished and maintained, Western Red Cedar will deliver decades of trouble-free service. It has a decay resistance of durability class 2 (durable) according to the EN 113 standard. 
  • Stability: Western Red Cedar has excellent dimensional stability because of its low wood density and shrinkage factor.  Shrinkage and swelling are minimal, displaying only small movements with changes in humidity. Stability is 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. Being one of the most stable wood species on the planet, Western Red Cedar fits the bill perfectly.
  • Grading: Silva Clear A & Better - click here for further grading information.
  • Sourcing/certification: Western Red Cedar is sourced from the most sustainably managed forests in the world in British Columbia, Canada and comes with PEFC certification.

Slatted screens can enhance a garden's style with a contemporary look:

  • Creates a surface with ever-changing patterns of light and shadow.
  • Provides a wonderful backdrop for plants and foliage.
  • Simple installation methods transform landscapes instantly.
  • Provides privacy without complete obstruction.
  • Horizontal boards are more effective at screening against the wind than a solid fence.
  • Can provide shade without sacrificing natural light.
  • Defines boundaries within the garden - separates relaxation areas from storage space.

Factory Coating

Choosing timber which is factory coated saves both time and money.  Our factory coated slatted screens are shipped with two coats of Sansin Environ-Stain which deliver an outstanding depth of colour and are ready to install at any time of the year.

Please note that though the battens are coated and protected on all sides, the back of the boards will not be coated to the same visual standard as the face.  Marks caused from contact with the drying rack and other irregularities may be visible on the rear of the boards.  This will have no negative impact on the performance of the screens; however, it may be visually undesirable if it is intended for use in applications where it may be visible on both sides. 


Western Red Cedar contains no pitch or resin, so there is no possibility of resin ‘bleed’ through surface coatings. The combined effect of this together with the dimensional stability of Western Red Cedar can help improve coating performance leading to a lower maintenance requirement.

For ease of installation and to create a uniform gap a 19mm space is recommended between boards. As the Factory Coated Slatted Screen Battens are 19mm thick, a simple trick is to balance the face of a loose board on top of the fixed board, then fasten the next board above this, removing the loose length once completed.

As a guide, a 6ft high (H1.83m) fence requires 32 battens of your chosen length, plus an additional batten per bay to act as a centre support.

Up to 2.44m
