The colour treatment of our battens is opaque allowing the wood grain to be visible through the attractive red / brown 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.
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.
Planed on all sides for a smooth finish our treated Scandinavian Redwood battens and posts are stunning. 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.
