Portland, Oregon-based Viridian Reclaimed Wood has introduced a new line of commercial-grade paneling derived from reclaimed transpacific crating material. Called Northwind, the wood is from a mix of slow-growing spruce and pine from the frigid climate of subarctic Russia. The paneling comes in two varieties: Rustic (in natural, ebony, silver and mocha stains) and Smooth (in natural, ebony and whitewash). All styles are in stock for short turnaround.
According to Viridian co-owner Pierce Henley, Northwind is intended to be an afforable, turnkey solution with consistent specs, and can be specified in environments where either rustic or neutral wood finishes are desired. It is available in 5/8″ thickness, with a face width of 3″, and in random lengths from 2′ to 8′. Architectural panels up to 3’ wide by 8’ tall are also available. All products are kiln-dried, precision milled to profile, sanded, and prefinished. The paneling is designed for fast installation, with very short lead times, and can be specified Class A fire-rated.
Viridian paneling is 100% FSC-certified and can contribute points toward the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Credits: MRc3: (Materials Reuse), MRc4 (Recycled Content), MRc5 (Regional Materials) and MRc7 (Certified Wood).
