Description

Pack of 10 Larch Battens.

Our Larch battens are a fantastic option if you want to build slatted fencing yourself or are planning to clad a garden building. The Larch battens have a beautiful planed finish, so they are smooth to the touch. Larch battens have a wonderful colouring and an attractive wood grain. This colouring can be protected and enhanced using a UV protection oil or can be allowed to naturally age to a handsome silver grey.

We offer Larch battens in two grades a premium A grade and B grade. Both are perfect for slatted fencing and are kiln dried so suitable for painting.

A Grade – These battens have been hand selected for quality and have fewer knots present. They will always have some knots as it is a natural product but rest assured our team has selected these battens by hand to ensure consistent grade and highest quality. Ideal for Contemporary Slatted fencing or other garden construction projects. Our A + grade Larch battens are a quality option that will sadly not be available much longer. Due to the current situation in the world this wood will soon not be available so get your order in to avoid disappointment.

B Grade – These battens may have more knots present, they are structurally sound and are perfectly good for slatted fencing and garden projects. As all sides of the battens are planed there is normally a best face that you should selected when using the batten. B Grade battens are perfect for painting as they are Kiln dried or they can be left to naturally age to a silver grey. In Sweden and Norway Larch with more knots is actually a more sought after product due to the more interesting appearance and the decorative look of the grain.  If you are looking for wood to bring character to a garden space then B grade is for you, the swirling grain and knots really are stunning.

Siberian Larch is a very popular timber choice for its appearance and durability. It is used widely by Designers and Architects and is considered one of the best timbers for exterior use. The shapes and patterns of the grain are very aesthetically pleasing and provide real character. The colour is normally honey, straw  to  light brown. It looks particularly good when stained with Cedar oil as this enhances the timbers colour or it can be left to naturally age to silver grey.

 

Larch originates from Siberia where the weather is extremely cold. The trees are very slow growing making the timber dense and tight grained with minimal knots. These characteristics make Larch perfect for external cladding, fencing as well as other features like joinery, decking, and flooring.

Larch is not as vulnerable to knocks, scrapes and scratches. This is an important aspect for fencing as it will mean your boundary will be robust and stand the test of time. You can expect your Larch to last between 30 and 50 years.
If you compare this to standard treated softwood fencing you can see that Siberian Larch really is a great option.

Larch does sometimes develop shakes or small splits as the wood dries out, this does not in any way effect the strength or durability of the wood. This is just a natural characteristic of Siberian Larch.

Our Siberian Larch battens and boards are machined in house. We take care to ensure that the Larch we produce is consistent and high quality.
All the work we do far exceeds most nationally accepted standards. When machining natural products there are always variations that occur but these will always fall within the accepted quality controls set out below.
