The ultimate contemporary profile
SILVALarch™ Channel Profile
Hugely popular in contemporary architecture thanks to its combination of durability and style, SILVALarch™ channel cladding will add a sense of depth and texture wherever and however you use it.
Whether indoors or out, or installed horizontally or vertically, the tongue and groove joint makes for easy installation, and the bold shadow line of the channel profile adds an element of modernity to almost any façade.
Made From Only the Finest Siberian Larch
Produced from the highest quality Siberian Larch from the Irkutsk region of Russia, the slow growth of the trees in the region makes for a very tight grain, and relatively few, well-interspersed tight knots. SILVALarch™ is produced from consistently high-quality wood fibre that far exceeds the official industry 'GOST 26002-83' grading standards.
It is important to note that Siberian Larch (Larix sibirica) is not to be confused with European Larch (Larix decidua, Larix europaea), which grows mainly in continental Europe and also here in the UK. Although related, Siberian Larch has different physical properties and is widely regarded to be a superior material. Notably it has a different appearance, it is more dimensionally stable, denser and more durable (due to its growing conditions) than its European cousin.
Kiln Dried to a Uniform Moisture Content
In kiln drying SILVALarch™ to a moisture content of 16-18% (+/-2%), the boards dry uniformly which not only makes them more dimensionally stable, but lets you immediately coat them and install with minimal acclimatisation on site. Find out about the benefits of kiln drying.
