Siberian Larch Corner post

Siberian larch corner posts / corner battens – Siberian Larch is a highly versatile timber specie. It is a preferred choice for many architects and self-builders. With a durability class 2/3, it has an anticipated service life of 30 – 50 years (untreated). The high resin content in Siberian larch makes it one of the most durable softwoods in the world. Siberian larch trees grow very slowly and consequently the larch wood is extremely dense and strong when compared to other softwoods such as spruce and cedar. The density of Siberian Larch is 628 kg/m3 (mean, Kg/m³) and ranges from 628 kg/m3 to 670 kg/m3.
Due to the natural durability of Siberian Larch timber, it is not as prone to bumps or scratches, like other types of timber. This is an important aspect when considering exterior cladding. The resin in the wood provides natural protection against rot and decay. The fact that it is so dense for a softwood also means that it requires less maintenance.
Displaying a clean natural yellow/straw colour, Siberian Larch will offer a sophisticated look to any project.
Siberian larch, which is a straw colour, similar to pine, should not be confused with the European larch growing in Britain, which is a dark pink colour. Unlike European larch, the knots in Siberian larch cladding are a lighter grey colour and tend to stay solid even after drying and machining. For this reason, we tend to favour Siberian larch over British larch for machined cladding profiles.
