Planed boards are run through our planing mill to create a smooth, dressed finish. View our profiles page for available types and sizes in all species.
SILA A/B® Cladding Planed to profile RW014
Microtex® is a contemporary, designer finish. The textured finish absorbs light, resulting in a matt look. Microtex® provides enhanced coating performance as the increased surface area of the cladding face enables enhanced adhesion properties. The Microtex® finish is a uniform, consistently fibrous surface finish which can be applied to all four sides.
Siberian Larch Cladding with Microtex® finish
To create this effect, wire brushes are used to pull out the softer spring wood, exposing the harder summer wood, thus accentuating the grain and creating a beautifully textured surface.
Thermopine® Cladding with Brushed finish
Siberian Larch is imported to the UK in board form. Depending on which mill it came from it can have irregular surface finishes.
To avoid an unsightly surface finish, Russwood skim the face of each board to provide a clean, unblemished fine-sawn finish. For example, circular sawn marks, twin-arbour lines, paint marks, grease marks or compression marks from steel securing bands. Sawn skimmed finish is more rugged/ “rural”.
