Canadian Select Cedar Battens - 80mm x 17mm pack of 10
Here is our brand new Canadian Select Cedar battens -
Canadian Select Cedar is highly durable and has a distinct character with beautiful grain and decorative knots. We have started importing this lovely grade of Cedar to offer a better value Cedar batten. This grade is sought after for its natural character and varied colours.
The reason Cedar is sought after is that it is a very durable wood, it grows slowly in the cold mountains of Canada giving the wood unique characteristics. Canadian Cedar has beautiful colours and long life properties. You will see companies offering English Cedar and Larch online these do not have the same durability or colouring as Canadian Cedar. So buy the real thing at a great price and choose Canadian Select Cedar.
Canadian Red Cedar is the perfect material for garden fencing and exterior joinery. These cedar battens offer an economical solution to your project needs, whether you need them in order build a new fence or replace old one or clad that garden building.
A 6ft batten is just £6.50 + Vat !! That's great value as the battens are 80mm wide! You only need 20 battens to make a 1.8m high panel so its possible to have real Canadian Cedar without breaking the bank.
The rise in popularity of slatted fencing has been huge. One the reasons for this is that it offers an interesting contrast with plants and natural elements. The strong structural lines of slatted fencing with the beautiful colours of Cedar is a winning combination.

Western Red Cedar
Natural Timber Range
The natural colour variation of our Western Red Cedar is simply stunning. Colours vary from light honey tones through soft reds to dark browns. Within this range of colours there are also two and three tone swirling patterns of natural grain. The naturally occurring colours of Cedar are unique and very beautiful. These characteristics separate Cedar from all other types of timber and set it as the favourite choice for garden designers and architects for use within contemporary schemes.
Cedar has a natural preservative oil within it that eliminates the need for further chemical treatments it acts as natural preservative to help the wood resist rot and decay. This makes it the perfect material to construct quality fencing. Many people prefer to allow their cedar fencing to “naturally age” outdoors without any finish at all. Over time the colour will weather to a handsome silver-grey highlighted by darker streaks, and the grain of the wood will become slightly raised.
Some clients prefer to maintain the look of the warm colours of Cedar and opt to have the fencing panels treated. We recommend Textrol HES – UV protection oil to protect and enhance the colour of your Cedar. Textrol HES is available to buy in our online shop. This enhances the natural colours of the Cedar panels and keeps them looking fresh as the day they were installed. Normally this stain would need to be refreshed every two to three years to keep the panels looking their best.
