SILVALarch™ Siberian Larch Slatted Screen Boards

From £1.99 £1.66 per linear metre

Siberian Larch slatted screens are an impressive contemporary alternative to the traditional fence, providing privacy yet allowing air and light to pass through. Slatted screens are very easy to build. They are an effective way to hide an unsightly wall or view and will make a stunning backdrop for a planting area.

Boards are available in two different widths enabling you to build your screen using just one width or combine for a more dramatic effect.

The wood of Siberian Larch is highly valued for its remarkable properties and performance characteristics. It is strong and durable, possessing especially high levels of resin which give the heartwood a natural resistance to decay.

Installation

For ease of installation and to create a uniform gap a 21mm space is recommended between boards. As Siberian Larch Boards are 21mm thick, a simple trick is to balance the face of a loose board on top of the fixed board, then fasten the next board above this, removing the loose length once completed.
