EuroClad — Engineered Timber Cladding System
Description

Manufactured in Germany, EuroClad is a pre-finished, engineered shiplap cladding, with a timber grain embossed surface.

Designed for stability and longevity with premium style, EuroClad offers a sustainable timber alternative that is eco-friendly and virtually maintenance free — there is no need to re-coat, stain or paint for a minimum of 15 years.

The lightweight tongue and groove profile and pre-drilled panels allow for easy installation. EuroClad can be installed either horizontally, vertically or on soffits.

EuroClad Selekta is manufactured from processed timber fibres, binding agent and wood preservative to ensure durability, and pest and rot resistance. The cladding is embossed in a variety of realistic timber grains and is available in a range of natural wood colours.
