Slatted screens can enhance a garden's style with a contemporary look:

• Creates a surface with ever changing patterns of light and shadow
• Provides a wonderful backdrop for plants and foliage
• Truly versatile - slats available in a variety of widths and length allow you to create unique visual rhythms and proportions
• Simple installation methods transforms landscapes instantly
• Provide privacy without complete obstruction
• Horizontal boards are more effective at screening against wind than a solid fence
• Can provide shade without sacrificing natural light
• Define boundaries within the garden - seperate relaxation areas from storage space.

A well designed and carefully built screen can provide a wonderful focal point for an outdoor space, so choosing the correct material is paramount. No other material compares to Western Red Cedar in terms of appearance, with beautiful warm colours and tight grain patterns providing a stunning natural material.

Stability is also key for slatted screens. To maintain the crisp, clean lines that are essential to the overall look of the screen it is important to choose a material that is less susceptible to warping or twisting. Being one of the most stable wood species on the planet, Western Red Cedar fits the bill perfectly.

• Exceptional stability means Cedar boards remain flat and straight
• Clear grade Western Red Cedar offers unrivalled beauty
• Being light in weight, Cedar is easy to cut and handle on site, reducing build time

• A proven performer in all types of climate, so its a natural product you can rely upon

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

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

Silva Select Prestige VG Western Red Cedar mainly falls into the official industry grade ‘No. 2 Clear & Better’. Occasional boards fall just below this into the ‘No. 4 Clear’ grade, so this grade is known as No.2 Clear & Better (allowing 15% No 4. Clear). It is specifically designed to provide a high quality raw material with occasional characteristics found in the grade below. A slight relaxing of the grading standard at the sawmill, to allow the inclusion of limited characteristics found in No. 4 Clear, enables us to offer cladding profiles produced from this raw material at a lower price point than pure Select No. 2 Clear & Better.

In most cases you will find only a small percentage of boards that do not conform to the grading rules for No. 2 Clear & Better. Users of cladding produced from this grade of Western Red Cedar will typically install boards of a lower standard in less prominent positions or may optimise boards to remove any characteristics that are deemed undesirable. Installers will find it helpful to sort and plan the positioning of boards before beginning the installation. This will enable the identification of boards that are to be trimmed and a possible position for those boards. This approach will ensure that saw wastage is kept to a bare minimum and may enhance the appearance of the finished project.

This grade may be described within the timber industry as No. 2 Clear & Better (allowing 15% No. 4 Clear), No. 2 Clear & Better blended, No. 2 Clear & Better mixed grade or No. 2 Clear & Better 85/15.

Important note regarding the grade

Silva Select Prestige VG is produced entirely from ‘vertical grain’ wood and is therefore superior to standard ‘No.2 Clear & Better’ and ‘No 4. Clear’ Western Red Cedar. The appearance and performance benefits far outweigh the minimal additional cost, making this product a wiser investment.

Choose Silva Select Prestige VG for your next project – you’ll appreciate the difference!

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.
