Silva Select Western Red Cedar Rainscreen Profile

Protect any commercial or residential building from the elements with our contemporary-look Western Red Cedar rainscreen profile cladding, which is usually installed horizontally.

The small gap between each board allows for dimensional movement, plus it enables very good air circulation, while creating a modern and smart shadow line effect.

Since this cladding style is open-jointed, it should be used in conjunction with a UV resistant, high-performance breather membrane.

High Quality Raw Materials Imported Direct from Canada

Our reputation is built on the quality of the raw materials we use, and the Silva Select Western Red Cedar is a great example of this. Sourced from British Columbia’s largest and most respected sawmills, Silva Select cladding has a distinctive aroma and luxurious appearance that only comes from old growth trees harvested in the British Columbia coastal region. It’s graded three times at source, after which we re-grade it to maintain quality, which always exceeds official industry R-List Grading Rules.

Kiln Dried for Minimal Site Acclimatising

Freshly felled logs contain lots of water, and we believe the best way to remove the moisture evenly in every stack of timber, is by kiln drying. We do this to a moisture content of 16-18% (+/-2%), which is the optimal moisture content for external cladding in the UK. So cladding can be installed with minimal acclimatisation on site and can be coated straight away too. Find out more about kiln drying.

A Complete Cladding System

Aside from cladding, we also offer a complete range of components and accessories, including battens, Tyvek® breather membrane, stainless steel nails, door / window trim, soffits, fascia, barge boards, corner sections and a wide range of coatings and cleaning products – everything you need to complete the job.
