Siberian Larch Cladding Description
The most common coniferous forests in the world are larch forests, and the most important taiga is Siberian larch. This is valid especially for the West–Siberian lowlands, this species also climbs to the upper border of the forest. In the broader spectrum, the Siberian larch also extends into northeast Europe. Just in the Russian Federation, the larch forests cover approx. 264 mils. ha. which is around 38% of their forest lands. Trees in Siberia reach up to 40m and around 400 years of age. The point of origin for Siberian larch is the West–Siberian lowlands, southern part of the mountainous central Siberia, to the west it reaches into Europe until the southeastern edge of the White sea and almost to the edge of Lake Onega, to the east it goes through Asia until the Baikal lake and to the southeast until Mongolia. It grows from the southern Asian borders of the former USSR until the northern border of the tundra. Siberian larch grows from almost sea–level to 2250 above. It grows from widespread lowlands up until the Alpine border of mountain forests. Highest occurring in Altai (up to 3700m above sea level)
Colour: yellow-white to red–white sapwood, core–wood red-brown to dark red-brown, darkens. During stronger heating from the sun, the resin can seep through.
Density: approx. 650kg/m3.
Available in a varied range of colors, Siberian larch wooden cladding has variously shaded from yellow-white to red–white sapwood, core–wood red-brown to dark red-brown, darkens. It is most demanded, desirable and commonly used for wooden cladding.
Larch wooden cladding is demanded as it’s naturally durable and waterproof. It is not easily damaged from knocks or scrapes.
Majorly Siberian larch cladding is opted for external cladding purpose due to high resistance against decay and rot, toughness against external factors, enhanced stability and can be easily machined.
Siberian Larch significant taiga is Siberian Larch for Siberian larch cladding, grown in the most common coniferous forest. Its Latin name is deciduous. Siberian Larch is originated in West Siberian Lowlands, the southern part of central Siberian Mountains that reaches to Europe. Further, it has grown till the southeastern border of the White Sea and Lake Onega.
It then extends through Asia till Baikal Lake and southeast till Mongolia. These species then further grows from south Asian borders of the former USSR till the northern edge of the tundra. These species go upward to the upper border of the forest from west Siberian low-land. Siberian Larch also extends to northeast Europe. It also covers approx 264 mils. Ha. In the Russian federation that is around 38% of their forest land.
It grows up to 40m height and tentatively for 400 years of age. It can also reach 60 m and 800 years. Siberian Larch also grows from the sea – a level above 2250 and established in low lands till edges of the alpine mountain forest. It occurs highest in Altai till 3700m above sea – level.
Siberian larch cladding is available in various ranges, with various shades from yellow-white to red–white sapwood, core–wood red-brown to dark red-brown, darkens. It is most demanded, desirable and commonly used for cladding.
Larch cladding is demanded as it’s naturally durable and waterproof. It is not easily damaged from knocks or scrapes. The Siberian larch cladding imparts a very smooth finish and hence provides attractive coloring and texture. It is not as vulnerable as other woods when it comes to getting damaged by knocks or scratches. The accessories that are required for larch wood cladding are- screws, brushes, and natural oil wood stain.
