Our range of HORIZON profiles is manufactured exclusively from PEFC Certified Western Red Cedar (Thujia plicata). Western Red Cedar is rated as Class 2 under the Australian durability ratings, with a probable life expectancy of 15 – 40 years in above ground applications. The timber has a high natural resistance to decay and termite attack, and is suitable for use in exposed, aggressive environments.
Tilling produces the HORIZON range to a Run of Mill grade, ensuring the longest lengths possible for your feature wall. Light weight, easy to work with and easy to stain, Western Red Cedar is a preferred wood for nearly all cladding applications where attractive appearance and resistance to weather are important.
Natural colour tones range from light straw through buff and warm red to the occasional deep brown. If left unfinished, all Western Red Cedar claddings will age gracefully to a silver finish without losing their weather resistant attributes.
The castellations on Horizon’s surface create the effect of dressed battens, with the convenience of secret nail tongue and groove profiling. Profiles available include Double Step which provides the look of a 29mm batten, or Triple Step for a 15mm batten effect. All HORIZON products can be installed horizontally or vertically depending on the style you wish to achieve. See our detailed installation instructions for further details.
