Larch is a durable and attractive softwood. It is a choice for many architects, contractors and self-builders. This is due to the fact it is extremely versatile, thus being suitable for most external timber cladding applications due to the excellent durability properties as well as displaying an attractive look. The shadow gap profiling, also known as channel cladding is machined so that each board fits together with adjoining boards to allow dimensional movement, thus maintaining it’s weatherproof integrity and providing a contemporary finish. This profile connects top and bottom giving water tight, clean appearance which can be installed vertically or horizontally. The profile should be fixed using stainless steel fixings.
