Western Red Cedar Fence Boards
Raw Material and Production
These No 2 & Better No Hole Western Red Cedar fence boards are produced from second growth British Columbia coastal grown Western Red Cedar.
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.
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.
Width / Lengths
Western Red Cedar fence boards are currently available in the following size and lengths:
Boards are kiln dried to a moisture content of 16-18% (+/-2%), the optimal moisture content for external timber 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
Boards have a SAWtex® textured surface on the face and a planed reverse.
The SAWtex® face is recommended as it will accept and retain finish significantly better than the planed face, thus improving appearance and minimising future maintenance.
