About Shiplap

Shiplap provides a stylish and strong alternative to traditional softwood or manufactured cladding systems. Cladding is profiled using the Radial Sawing Method from backsawn bevelled edge boards that overlap to produce a continuous vertical or horizontal cladding system. Cladding boards are generally sawn from naturally durable regrowth Australian hardwoods such as Silvertop Ash.

 

NOTE: Silvertop Ash is one of the approved species for use in “high fire danger” areas by Building Control Comm. Practice Note No. 46 (Dec. 2001).
