Other Timbers We Supply

Canadian Western Red CedarBritish Western Red Cedar

Although the same species (Thuja Plicata) the growing environment in Canada differs vastly from here in the UK and subsequently each country produces a vastly different product.

To simplify the differences -

British Western Red cedar is a consistent honey brown colour and is relatively knotty, perfect for a more rustic "Country" look but Canadian Cedar has a wide range of colours from cream through to red and oak, often on the same length of timber, it has very few knots and lends itself to a more contemporary "Modern" look. Both are suitable for internal or external use.

Canadian and British Cedar can be left untreated and both will "silver/grey" unless a UV oil is applied, please see www.co2cedar.co.uk for Canadian Cedar details British Cedar please see www.co2timber.co.uk details

Both these timbers are "good to work" i.e., they both machine well and are nice to work with. It is really about the look you want to achieve which normally dictates which type of cedar to use. Both of the Cedars are FSC, PEFC certified (Canadian).

Siberian Larch – Please see www.co2larch.co.uk for details

Although classified as a soft wood Siberian Larch is one of the hardest soft woods around, it is a hard-wearing tough timber which can be left untreated to naturally age (grey/Silver).

It lends itself well to both internal and external projects such as Flooring, Decking, Cladding and Fencing.

As with all timber we supply Siberian larch is a sustainable timber, FSC, and if maintained well will easily out last the time it takes to grow. The Siberian climate produces this hard durable timber.

Red Grandis Hardwood – Please see www.grandis.co.uk for details

Eucalyptus Grandis is a part of the Eucalyptus family and commonly known as Rose Gum or Flooded Gum as well as Red Grandis here in the UK. FSC, PEFC and EUTR certified and compliant

Red Grandis is a versatile, fast-growing hardwood. Its colour has variations ranging from pale pink to deep red. A good choice for a clean contemporary "Modern" look.

It lends itself well to both internal and external projects such as Flooring, Decking, Cladding and Fencing.

Red Grandis is plantation-grown in areas of Uruguay.

It can be left untreated and like all timber will "silver/grey" unless a UV oil is applied

This is a great timber not only for external cladding and landscaping project such as decking but is easily hard enough for flooring.

Balau – Please see www.co2balau.co.uk for details

Grown in Malaysia Balau has a natural resistance to insects and fungus and is ideal for exterior and interior projects.

Balau is a very hard timber with smooth fine grain and has very few knots. Mainly associated with decking but is also a very worthy timber cladding, fencing & flooring.

FSC, SVLK (Indonesia’s Timber Legality Assurance), FLEGT (a Organisation to combat illegal logging) compliant.

American Douglas – Please see www.co2douglasfir.co.uk for details

American Douglas Fir softwood is a light brown to a reddish brown colour with few knots and is harder and more durable than its European Douglas cousin. PEFC compliant.

It can be left untreated and like all timber will “silver/grey” unless a UV oil is applied.

It lends itself well to both internal and external projects such as Flooring, Decking, Cladding and Fencing


Durability

When selecting your timber type for your project it is worth taking in to consideration BS EN 350 timber durability class.

Durability is the ability of a species to resist decay either naturally or through preservatives. The Class is based on the ability of the heartwood (inner part of the tree) to resist fungal decay. The sapwood (the living outermost portion of the tree)is considered not durable and should not be used for external projects without preservative.

BS EN 350 has 5 classes of durability they are:-

Class 1 to 3 can be left as untreated timber, a natural ageing process will accrue e.g. Cedar will turn a grey colour. Class 4 and 5 will need to be treated with preservatives.
