NORclad Siberian Larch Timber Cladding

Siberian Larch timber cladding is a durable specie with the sapwood omitted. It is a slow grown high density, softwood with a colour that ranges from a light straw yellow to a gold/brown in the heartwood area.

Siberian larch is one of the most durable species of coniferous softwood and comes from Siberia in Russia. It is one of the hardest and strongest commercial softwoods, excellent machining properties, though knots may be troublesome, and is suitable for many end uses from external joinery and cladding applications, areas of potential high impact damage such as schools, shops to boat planking.
