Our European Oak TGV cladding is a great choice of cladding for a range of buildings. European oak is a traditional choice that has been used for many years. Its attractive golden-yellow tones offer a light, natural look.
This specially selected timber has been sourced from Europe, where weather conditions force slower timber growth. This slower rate ensures that the timber is consistently high in quality. It is a very durable timber that has been kiln-dried to enhance its natural stability.
European Oak cladding boards are available in sizes listed below:
18mm x 135mm (Face width) – 2.4m
18mm x 135mm (Face width) – 3.0m
18mm x 135mm (Face width) – 3.6m
18mm x 135mm (Face width) – 4.0m
All of our Oak can be ordered cut to section, and to the lengths that you require to minimise waste. Oak will be sourced from France (Or UK Grown if required), and can be ordered in lengths up to, 8.0mtr.
Oak can be ordered as QPA/ QP1 graded, which will ensure the look of your Oak beams are to your requirement. We are also able to offer Oak that is strength graded to THA/ TH1 or THB/TH2, which will ensure that your Oak is suitable for its structural purpose. We can also make sure the Oak is purchased as PEFC or FSC certified if required.
Please do note that Oak is a natural product, and splits, cracks and fissures can occur during the drying process. Oak beams will also change in colour over time and can darken up considerably once cut- some black boreholes are also acceptable. Please also note that if you are looking for beams to contain minimal knot/ defect, it would be beneficial to ask for your timber to be strength or appearance graded. All Oak will be supplied overlength, for on-site final cutting.
