Siberian Larch Slatted fence panel.
Our high quality Siberian larch slatted fence panels are handmade in our joinery workshop. It’s a contemporary style horizontal slatted panel, designed to create a continious line of fencing with no visible posts.
These fence panels are made from hard wearing Siberian Larch
The Larch battens used for these fence panels are 44mm x 21mm and there is a 7mm gap between each batten.
These fencing panels are sold in handy 60cm and 90cm high sections that can be stacked above each other to achieve your desired fence height. If your desired fencing height is different you can easily trim off battens as required. The join between stacked panels is invisible so it will look like a single panel once installed.
- Don’t forget to buy screws to attach your panels to posts – you can find our 63mm powder coated screws in the fixing section of our website.
- These panels have a grading of A/B
- Larch is a hard wearing wood that will last outdoors with no treatment. It has natural oils and tannins withn it that protect it from the elements. The battens will fade into handsome silver grey over time, or you can protect the colour using one of our wood care products from our online shop.
- Larch panels are also kiln dried and are perfect for painting. If left to naturally age, Larch turns a handsome silver grey.
Larch battens are used to make our larch slatted fence panels as shown in the second photo.
About Siberian Larch
Siberian Larch is often a very popular timber batten choice for its appearance. It is regarded as having a very desired finish and provides beautiful colouring and texture. The shapes and patterns of the grain are very aesthetically pleasing and provide real character to fencing panels.
It is a slow growth, high density softwood which makes it one of the hardest commercial softwoods available. It is 50% harder than Scots Pine and this is one of the reasons why it is such a desired timer. This high-density characteristic makes it very durable and perfect for external cladding fencing as well as other features like joinery, decking, and flooring.
Due to this durability, it is a wood that isn’t as vulnerable to knocks, scrapes and scratches as other woods. This is an important aspect for fencing.
Larch does sometimes develop shakes or small splits as the wood drys out, this does not in any way effect the strength or durability of the wood. This is just a natural charateristic of Siberian Larch.
