Red Grandis

Red Grandis timber cladding is a popular choice for architects and builders alike. It is a hardwood timber sourced from Uruguay, specifically from the Eucalyptus family. The trees are fast-growing and harvested at around 20 years old when they reach a diameter of approximately 60cm. The forests in Uruguay are well-managed and regularly pruned to ensure there are minimal knots, resulting in straight-grained timber.

Stable, Dense, & Durable

One of the benefits of Red Grandis timber cladding is its stability and density. It has a durability class of 3, meaning it is rated as moderately durable. Although it is not highly durable, it can still be used externally if it is pressure-treated to protect the sapwood from rot and insect attack. At Brookridge Timber, we recommend brown high-pressure treatment, which would give the product a 30-year warranty against rot and insect attack, increasing the durability class to 2, which is rated as durable.

A Sustainable Choice

The Red Grandis timber cladding supplied by Brookridge Timber is special because it is 100% FSC® certified, meaning it comes from well-managed forests. Our Red Grandis timber is straight-grained and has a consistent color that adds a natural warmth to any project. Our team of experts has years of experience in supplying high-quality timber cladding, and we ensure that each order meets our customers’ exact requirements.
