Home > Companies > NORclad Limited > Siberian Larch Timber Cladding

Timber cladding species ideal for many end uses from external joinery and cladding applications, areas of potential high impact damage such as schools, shops to boat planking.

Siberian Larch is a moderately durable species, a slow grown high density softwood with a colour that ranges from a light straw yellow to a gold/ brown in the heartwood area.

It is one of the hardest and strongest commercial softwoods, with only Pitch Pine generally stronger.

Siberian larch has excellent machining properties, if it is not protected upon installation the timber will naturally weather down to a silver grey appearance.

The species is classified as moderately durable, therefore if required the we can provide additional treatment for external use (UC3); with NORclad Brunnea™ or NORclad Lite™.
