Stunning Vertical Grain Western Red Cedar Boards

Raw Material and Productionn

Clear All-heart Vertical Grain (known as CVG) is the very best grade of Western Red Cedar available. It is produced exclusively from the heartwood of the tree by slicing the log perpendicular to the growth rings to produce very narrow straight lines on the surface. CVG is prized for its beautiful fine grained appearance and dimensional stability. It is produced using only the highest quality wood fibre, so you can be assured that you are buying the very best CVG Western Red Cedar, grown in the British Columbia coastal region.

These boards are produced for Silva by Terminal Forest Products, a Canadian primary sawmill and manufacturer with an unparalleled international reputation for superior Western Red Cedar products.

Terminal’s fastidious approach to quality control means that production quality of these boards is exceptional. The material far exceeds the NLGA grading standards for CVG.

This product is available exclusively in the UK through Silva. It is sustainably sourced from well managed forests and supplied with full PEFC chain of custody certification.


Kiln Dried

Boards are 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 drying click here.

Surface Texture and Profile

These boards are planed smooth on one side and two edges with a SAWtex® textured surface on the other face. They have a 1.6mm radius on the corners.

Finishing & Protection

It is recommended that a finish is applied to all surfaces, including ends, before installation. The type of coating will be determined by the final finish and appearance desired.

Why factory coat?

  • Enhances the natural beauty of wood
  • Ensures a consistent finish
  • Applied in factory conditions
  • Long lasting protection against weathering
  • Simple maintenance routine
  • Reduces onsite labour costs

Sansin Enviro Stains

Easy to apply and maintain, Sansin Enviro-stains deliver outstanding performance. Sansin's range of wood protection products are available in 80 colour tones

What is weathering?

There is a risk involved when leaving wood exposed to the elements. During the weathering process wood can appear unsightly as the material can blacken due to moisture getting into the fibres and pulling out tannins and extractives. Finish protects the wood from moisture absorption and UV degradation.

What to expect from timber products

When working with timber it should be expected that although ‘on-grade’, occasional boards may have minor imperfections that will require ‘working’ if you wish to eliminate. Examples include raised grain, small splits, minor handling marks, sticker marks etc – all of which can easily be remedied by trimming, gluing or sanding. In most cases imperfections can be removed with very little effort, and the small amount of off cuts generated as a result will be absorbed in the normal cutting and selection allowance.

 

Grading

Grade

Western Red Cedar is the ultimate green building material. It is legally, responsibly and sustainably harvested in the publicly managed forests of British Columbia, Canada. Less than 1% of standing timber is harvested each year.

For each tree harvested, three are replanted to ensure the forests will exist in perpetuity. Western Red Cedar has a low impact on the environment throughout its life cycle. It requires significantly less energy to produce than man-made alternatives and is bio-degradable.
