About Scandinavian Redwood
Scandinavian Redwood is a type of pine and is classified as softwood. For use outdoors Redwood is pressure treated to make the wood suitable for exterior use. Tanalith preservative treatment is impregnated into the Redwood under controlled conditions in a vacuum pressure timber impregnation plant. The treatment protects the Redwood timber and also gives an attractive light brown colour.
Scandinavian Redwood mainly originates from Sweden, Finland and Russia. It is also known as Scots pine, Baltic redwood, Finnish redwood, Archangel Redwood, Russian redwood, Polish redwood, Scots Fir, Riga pine, Norway pine, European redwood or Scandinavian Pine.
The Contemporary Fencing Companies new range of Venetian fence panels is made from specially selected & treated Scandinavian Redwood. The colouring of the treated wood is a very attractive light brown colour. Company director Dominic Brice had been looking for many years for a lower cost timber that could be sold alongside our Western Red Cedar fencing but had not been able to find anything that met our high standards until now!
Our new treated Scandinavian Redwood has a very high quality planed finish, the battens are smooth and regular and evenly coloured. The light brown colour is very attractive especially when used as a slatted fence panel.
