Douglas Fir is a popular softwood timber, grown in Western North America. The wood has a rich coloration, with the heartwood generally a dark tan red and the sapwood a lighter tan. The Sound Tight Knot grade of Douglas Fir processed by BrookClad to manufacture cladding has small tight live and frequent knots and is similar in appearance to sawfalling Siberian Larch. Over time, when exposed to UV, it will acquire an attractive silver-grey color. Douglas Fir is known for its strength and workability and is one of the most useful and frequently used timbers worldwide.

Durable & Easy To Work With

There are several benefits to using Douglas Fir timber cladding. It is a sustainable wood type, and Brookridge Timber sources it from well-managed forests that have FSC and PEFC certification. The wood has high durability and is resistant to decay, fungal attack, and insect infestations. The wood is also easy to work with, which means it can be shaped and cut to fit various designs and shapes, making it an ideal material for cladding.
