Silva Select cladding is made exclusively from premium coastal grown Western Red Cedar. Trees grown in the coastal region of British Columbia produce timber that is generally richer in colour and tighter grained than that produced from Western Red Cedar trees grown further inland. With its distinctive aroma and luxurious appearance, Silva’s Western Red Cedar stands apart from the rest, providing unrivalled beauty and maximum dimensional stability.

Kiln dried for consistency

Kiln drying draws out moisture from wood more evenly than air drying. Consistent moisture content means optimal dimensional stability and enables cladding to be coated immediately and installed with minimal site acclimatisation. Silva Select Western Red Cedar is kiln dried to 16-18% (+/-2%), the UK’s optimal moisture content for exterior cladding.

Grading

To guarantee quality and consistency the raw material is graded three times at source then further selection is done at Silva. It is first graded in the sawmill, then sized and graded once again before it undergoes the kiln drying process. Once kiln dried it is graded a third time to ensure accurate sizing and grading. As the raw material is moulded into cladding profiles at Silva, it is again checked and re-graded to ensure it meets our own in-house standards.

This product carries Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC)

Silva Timber meets the requirements for PEFC Chain of Custody within the BM TRADA Certification Limited Scheme for TRADA - Trak chain of custody certification.
