This Cequence slatted bevel edged fencing panel is constructed from 44mm x 18mm Clear grade Western Red Cedar battens with a gap size of 7mm.
The front edge of each slat has a bevel that allows water to drain and sunlight to pass into the garden. Our unique cedar fencing allows maximum privacy and contemporary style.
These panels are used in conjunction with our posts and capping as part of our patented 3 part system or can be attached directly to a wall or existing fence.
What is Western Red Cedar?
The sapwood is narrow and white in colour, and the heartwood is reddish-brown. When freshly felled, the heartwood often displays a marked variation in colour; that from the centre of the log may be a dark chocolate-brown changing to salmon pink nearer the sapwood, or the wood may be variegated with alternate dark and light zones. After conventional high temperature kiln drying, the wood assumes a uniform reddish-brown tone, but after long exposure to weather the colour is lost, and the wood becomes silver-grey. This weathered appearance is sometimes purposely sought by architects, but a further peculiarity of the wood is its ability to take and hold stain of the finest tint without discolouration. The wood is non-resinous, straight-grained, somewhat coarse- textured and exhibits a fairly prominent growth-ring figure It is soft, rather brittle, aromatic, especially when wet and light in weight, about 390 kg/m³ when dried.
Western Red Cedar is light weight and soft timber contributes to low strength properties and compared with European redwood (Pinus sylvestris) it is some 20 to 30 per cent inferior in bending strength, and about 1 5 per cent less stiff. It is also much less resistant to splitting and indentation on side grain than redwood.
Western Red Cedar is durable, long lasting, particularly when properly treated.
