Straight Edge Cladding
Straight edge cladding comes in similar sizes, thicknesses and lengths to waney edge, but has the waney edge machined off straight. This cladding is suited to buildings that do not require the more rustic look. We can supply straight edge back weathered or square and lengths vary, but tend to be around three to three and a half meters. We can also supply straight edge cladding planed smooth rather than freshly sawn.
Similar to other cladding, straight edged boards are laid horizontally with a 25mm overlap for smaller 150mm wide boards, or 40mm overlap for wider 250mm boards. Board thickness varies from 18mm to more than 25mm depending on your requirements. We can supply straight edge in green oak, larch, douglas fir or western red cedar.
