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.

Silva Timber’s FSC certified kiln dried Siberian Larch boasts an impressive set of natural attributes that make it ideally suited for use as timber fencing. This unique wood species not only has a pleasing appearance but is also durable, stable and dense and will therefore provide excellent long term performance even in the harshest of environments.

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

Sansin Enviro Stains

Easy to apply and maintain, Sansin Enviro-stains deliver outstanding performance. Sansin's range of wood protection products are available in 80 colour tones

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.

Grading

Grade - Sawfalling (I-IV) Grade

The main commercial 'appearance' grades of timber from Russia are available in five distinct quality divisions. These grades are assigned Roman Numerals going from I ('Firsts') - which denotes the best looking timber, down to V ('fifths') which denotes worst looking timber.

It is not possible to buy higher appearance grades from any Russian producer in all 'First' grade for example. Higher grade timber from Russia is nowadays sold as a mixed assortment.

The highest commercially available 'appearance' grade of Siberian Larch is known as 'Unsorted'. Although the name would suggest that the material has not been sorted the timber has been sorted into the highest three appearance qualities - I,II & III or 'firsts', 'seconds' and 'thirds' (or simply described as I-III). 'Unsorted' grade Siberian Larch therefore consists of a mix of grades I - III.

The difference between the 'Unsorted' and 'Sawfalling' grades is that the latter also includes IV ('fourth') grade in the mix, therefore 'Sawfalling' consists of a mix of grades I - IV. The actual percentage of each quality division in any one shipment or pack of both 'Unsorted' and 'Sawfalling' grades correlates with the natural recovery of the timber while sawing.

Silva Timber stocks three grades of Siberian Larch: 'Unsorted' (I - III), 'Sawfalling' (I-IV) and 'Fourth' (IV) grades. 'Sawfalling' is the grade that is produced in the highest volumes by Russian Sawmills and it is a grade that is well suited to exterior cladding applications.

Environment

Independently Verified Environmental Credentials

Siberian Larch is one of the few old growth species that are being harvested from a sustainable forest. Larch species actually account for 38% of the timber in a forest area 2.7 billion acres in size. The natural growth rate of Siberian Larch is five times more than the rate at which it is being harvested, making it a sustainable renewable resource that is in plentiful supply.

Silva Timber takes great care in ensuring that the Siberian Larch we buy comes from a sustainable source – it is fully FSC certified.

This product carries Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Accreditation

FSC is a world-wide, independent, non-profit, non-governmental organisation representing environmental and social groups and the timber and forestry industry. It aims to generate certification of forestry activity that incorporates clear guidelines and standards covering social, environmental and economic aspects of forest management.

Established in 1993 as a response to concerns over global deforestation, FSC is widely regarded as one of the most important initiatives of the last decade to promote responsible forest management worldwide

The FSC label provides a credible link between responsible production and consumption of forest products, enabling consumers and businesses to make purchasing decisions that benefit people and the environment as well as providing ongoing business value.

 

Chain of Custody (CoC)

The FSC Chain of Custody (CoC) certification system provides an audit trail from forest to final use. The rigour of the system is ensured by regular independent inspection at all stages in the supply chain.

FSC chain of custody (CoC) tracks FSC certified material through the production process - from the forest to the consumer, including all successive stages of processing, transformation, manufacturing and distribution.

Only FSC CoC certified operations are allowed to label products with the FSC trademarks. The FSC label thus provides the link between responsible production and consumption and thereby enables the consumer to make socially and environmentally responsible purchasing decisions.

Silva Timber Products meets the requirements for FSC Chain of Custody Standard FSC - STD - 40 - 004 (2004) within the BM TRADA Certification Limited Scheme for TRADA - Trak chain of custody certification
