Benefits Of Western Red Cedar

 

Thermal protection

When it comes to thermal insulation, Western Red Cedar is both practical and eco-friendly. Its low density makes it the best insulator of any available softwood, also outperforming brick, concrete and steel. When used as exterior Blinds, Western Red Cedar keeps buildings cooler in summer,
while cutting heating costs in winter. This results in reduced energy usage and contributes towards a higher Green Star building rating.

Structure & performance

Western Red Cedar offers outstanding dimensional stability. With an Australian Durability Rating of 2, Western Red Cedar offers twice the stability of most commonly available conifers. Western Red Cedar is resistant to cupping, warping and shrinking, even when milled into intricate profiles. This highly-practical species offers exceptional durability, even without the use of coating. The naturally-occurring preservatives present in Western Red Cedar provide in-built resistance to termites, moisture and decay.

 

Acoustic Properties

With the right engineering, Western Red Cedar timber can meet various acoustic ratings when used in internal architectural designs. The open cellular structure of Western Red helps to absorb and dissipate sound, making it effective at confining noise. For external applications the timber’s sound deflection properties are perfect for those rooms where noise is an issue.
