Product Details

Butt and Bead (or bead and Butt) a classic timber cladding profile

This profile was introduced to provide an alternative internal cladding option to the ex 16mm x 100mm redwood board. The extra width makes this untreated cladding more suited to larger expanses of cladding than the ex-100mm TGV boards.

These boards are machined from ex 16mm x 150mm kiln dried redwood and this traditional profile is often found in late Victorian and Edwardian properties. The finished thickness of these Scandinavian redwood boards is approx. 12mm. Board lengths are usually in the 3.6 metre (< 12′) to 3.9 metre (just under 13′) range

Applications include wall and partition cladding, joinery in wardrobe backs and kitchen cupboards. The boards should be allowed to adjust to interior moisture levels for at least seven days before use. They can be finished with oils, stains, varnishes or paint.
