A well designed and carefully built screen can provide a wonderful focal point for an outdoor space
SILVALarch™ slatted screen boards are 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, and relatively few well interspersed sound tight knots. 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™ slatted screen boards are available exclusively through Silva. They are sustainably sourced from well managed forests and supplied with full FSC chain of custody certification.
Widths and Lengths
SILVAlarch™ slatted screen boards are usually available from stock in the following sizes:
Widths: 21 x 44, 21 x 96, 21 x 121 and 21 x 146mm

SILVAlarch™ is kiln dried to a moisture content of 16-18% (+/-2%), the optimal moisture content for external cladding in the UK. Among its many benefits over air drying, the kiln drying process enables the boards to dry uniformly to achieve optimum dimensional stability. It also enables immediate application of coatings and minimises site acclimatisation. For more information on the benefits of kiln dried timber click here.
