Shiplap timber dimensions
These cedar shiplap boards are ex 22mm x 150mm and finish at 17mm thick with a cover of approximately 133mm. Cedar board lengths are variable but the majority are usually in the range of 3.05m to 3.97m (10' to 13'). As with all cedar the colour from board to board varies from a pale pink to a richer red/brown colour.
Cedar Shiplap fixings
Cedar timber boards should be fixed with stainless steel or bronze alloy fixings because the natural tannins in the board will corrode iron, galvanised and aluminium fixings. A range of stainless steel annular nails is available from 25mm to 75mm, stainless steel panel pins and screws are also stocked. Paslode stainless nails are available to order, typically with a 24-48 hour lead time.
Cedar timber finishes
Cedar timbers are naturally a bright vibrant combination of pinks, reds and brown hues but without UV-protection they will begin to grey quite rapidly. Osmo UV-Protection Oil include clear and pigmented products to slow down the UV greying process.
