Siberian Larch Sawn Timber boards Kiln Dried is valued for its tough, waterproof and durable qualities. Top quality timber is in great demand for building yachts and other small boats, for exterior cladding of buildings, and interior panelling. In Central Europe larch is viewed as one of the best wood materials for the building of residences. Siberian larch sawn timber benefits are an impressive dimensional stability, low cost of installation, low maintenance, high manufacturing standards.
Compared with spruce and pine, Siberian larch timber is more weather-proof because of its more dense wood structure (about 40% higher density than spruce/pine) and high content of resin. Because of this, Siberian larch sawn timber doesn’t need extra treatment and can be installed in its natural state even in external conditions. Over time natural Siberian larch will obtain a grey shade in external conditions without losing its durability. However, if the natural colour of the timber is to be maintained this can be achieved on site by using a UV protection deck oil.
Siberian Larch sawn timber has a high percentage of heartwood and a minimum of sapwood. Dry timber is approx. 628kg / m³ with a moisture content of 18 – 16%. This higher density timber means it is not easily damaged and therefore is ideal for heavier traffic areas or applications where there is the chance of physical damage such as knocks or scrapes i.e. schools, shops, shopping centres. etc.
