For ease of installation and to create a uniform gap an 18mm space is recommended between boards. As the slatted screen boards are 18mm 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.

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.
