A well designed and carefully built screen can provide a wonderful focal point for an outdoor space
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 • Truly versatile - slats available in a variety of widths and length allow you to create unique visual rhythms and proportions • Simple installation methods transforms landscapes instantly • Provide privacy without complete obstruction • Horizontal boards are more effective at screening against wind than a solid fence • Can provide shade without sacrificing natural light • Define boundaries within the garden - seperate relaxation areas from storage space.
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.

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, tannin bleed etc – all of which can easily be remedied by cleaning, 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.
Note: Battens are surfaced on one side and two edges. This does not necessarily mean the boards are smooth. One of the edges is lightly textured.
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
