Planed on all sides for a smooth finish our treated Scandinavian Redwood is a great option for garden fencing. The complex pressure treatment protects the wood making it ideal for use in exterior situations. These battens are cross cut to size prior to the treatment process so that the ends are also treated and the battens are all the same length.
We use Scandinavian Redwood battens to construct our popular Venetian fence panels and also sell individual battens for customers to use for DIY projects. Venetian fencing is becoming very popular and using this grade of Redwood gives you a similar look to expensive Cedar.
For this reason the colour, timber grade and planed finish of these battens have been selected by Contemporary Fencing to give our customers a quality alternative to Cedar at a fraction of the cost. These battens really are special, there is simple no other treated redwood that comes close in appearance and value.
We offer samples of our redwood so please get in contact or come and see us in our landscaping showroom so you can see the quality for yourself.
We offer Redwood in tanalised green treated and brown treated finishes. Both offer fantastic protection and are ideal for outdoor projects and creating slatted Venetian Fencing.
The colour treatment of our battens is opaque allowing the wood grain to be visible through the attractive red / brown or green colour. This colour is applied as part of the pressure treatment process and is not the natural colour of the wood. The battens are always slightly darker when the battens are new, this is because battens take a few weeks to dry out after treatment. Once the battens are fully dry you can apply a UV protector to protect the colour and prevent it fading. See our woodcare section for UV protection stain.
important Note:- Our Treated Redwood fencing and battens are made form high quality Scandinavian redwood that is pressure treated to give a long lasting finish. It is a softwood that is suitable for outdoor use. Redwood battens and boards can develop small lateral splits and checks as the wood drys out. This does not effect the durability of the wood and it is not considered a defect as its a natural characteristic of the wood. If you are looking for perfect fencing that will not have these small imperfections then we recommend that you choose Cedar.
1000s of customers choose our Redwood fencing every year including designers and landscapers. It really is the best!
