NORCLAD BRITISH LARCH TIMBER CLADDING

British Larch is an indigenous specie which grows in various parts of Britain which gives an improved carbon footprint to local projects and developments over Siberian Larch.

British grown Larch, known as Larix Europaea, is naturally moderately durable softwood in view of its high resin content with a colour that ranges from a light-dark brown heartwood to a white sapwood.

BENEFITS OF LARCH

Compared to Siberian Larch, British grown Larch is typically warmer in appearance having a rich heartwood colour, it has a greater number of knots and perhaps more grain character.

Knots are brown and can be scattered and frequent, and they may loosen and weep resin for 12-18 months. It will colour down to a silver grey if it is not protected as soon as installation is complete with a good quality semi or fully translucent UV-radiation protective coating. It is a very strong and hard-wearing wood.
