The Timber range of our Brise Soleil products consists of a variety of timber solutions. With Western Red Cedar being the most popular due to its durability, lightweight and resistance to warp. Weatern Red Cedar is an evergreen coniferous tree native to western North America. This softwood shows considerable colour variation when first machined, from a dark chocolate-brown to a salmon pink colour, maturing and weathering to a reddish-brown and eventually it often turns a silver-grey colour. Architects have been known to be very satisfied with this weathered appearance.
