Naturally durable Siberian Larch cladding
SILVALarch™ Shiplap Profile
SILVALarch™ Shiplap cladding profile is suitable for both internal and external applications. The boards interlock with a tongue and groove system for easy installation with no visible fixings. This profile is installed horizontally to accentuate the width of the façade.
Shiplap features a curved channel along the joint that creates strong shadow lines but with a softer more sculpted appearance. The shape of the profile also enables water to run off easily.
SILVALarch™ Shiplap will suit a variety of applications from traditional summerhouses to striking contemporary homes.
Shiplap cladding forms part of the SILVALarch™ range of kiln dried Siberian Larch decking, cladding, boards and corner trims produced in-house by Silva.
SILVALarch™ cladding is produced from the highest quality slow grown Siberian Larch from the Irkutsk region of Russia, an area that experiences long cold winters and short summers. Wood from this harsh climate is much sought after for its natural growth characteristics – exceptionally slow growing therefore dense with tight grain. With immediate access to a plentiful supply of old growth logs from this vast forest area, our supplier is able to provide us with Siberian Larch of an exceptional quality that far exceeds the official '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.
SILVALarch™ shiplap cladding is available exclusively through Silva. It is sustainably sourced from well managed forests and supplied with full FSC chain of custody certification.
